The way I see it, the future ain't so bleak. Even with the loss of Big Ben. Seems to me we insert Dyess into the starting lineup and move Sheed's azz to center, while bringing Nazr off the bench. Losing Ben is a BIG blow, but this storm can be weathered. The real question is coaching and the backup backcourt. Which brings me to Flip and Delfino. Last season Flip wazn't rocking the boat. So he let the players do it their way. Barring a trade (and Joe's still looking, mind you) it looks like Delfino's competition is gonna be a first half-sitting-out Hunter and two guys who were the last choice in their respective drafts. And Ben ain't got his back either. If Joe picks up another guard, the handwriting's on the wall for Delfino. I hope he can rise to the challenge.
