For example, if you were somehow able to add Sam Cassell and Jamal Magloire to this roster for next year, they easily make the playoffs. So the rumored trade from earlier in the year for Andre Miller and Nene makes sense.
That being said, I've given up on the possibility of Marvin Williams being able to play PF. He's a small forward all the way. He's tall, athletic, and has a real nice shot. I think best case scenario is that they trade Harrington and maybe Childress for a PG and C, and then draft a PF since they are in a bigger supply.
For more basketball thoughts check out Straight Bangin's post from this morning. He starts off by killing crappy basketball announcers and then moves on to poking fun at Vince and Kobe. My favortite part:
"I was offered Vince Carter in a fantasy league trade on Monday, but I don't trade for anyone who, when presented with the opportunity, neglects to put a beatdown on Kobe Bryant. Did anyone else see that weak-ass "fight" on Sunday night? Talk about fake thugs.
Excluding rape, that was two of the least-hard people in the L mean muggin' and acting like they actually wanted to "throw down fisticuffs" and involve Jack Johnson and Tom O'Leary. If Kobe ever fought Vince, the under card would have to be Tim Thomas against Michael Olowokandi. It would be like Will Smith gunnin' for Kevin Federline; like Jake Gyllenhaal vs. Tobey Maguire; like...like...like Barney Frank challenging Joe Lieberman to a duel.
It would have been absurd; they both would have embarrassed themselves; and Vince would have been out for a month with a broken nail while Kobe would have needed to get another fugazi tattoo to compensate for a shameful display of bitch-ass-ness. And, of course, I would have loved it."
