Good start to the season.
 
Most of our guys have seemed to step up so far this year and we're off to a good start. Dwight and Big Baby seem to be having fun out there fooling around too. Anyone think Howard may consider staying for another year in Orlando if we keep this up?
Everyone but Nelson and Big Baby seem to be playing well. Big Baby's still giving good hussle and energy though. I've been surprised that Duhon's actually contributing I just wish Van Gundy would give Harper a shot at doing something.

This is exactly the start Otis and most of us wanted. Hopefully showing Dwight there's something to work with here, much more than NJ and LA who we've already beat up on. Tough few weeks coming up could tell us a lot more though. Hopefully we keep it up.

True we have had an easyish schedule. I was kind of hoping Turk was under performing because he had joined us mid season last year. Von Wafer been a surprise too, I don't remember him being so explosive on the drive in Boston I've always thought we could use a guard who could actually be a driving threat on their own.

Yep, agreed. Von has been a surprise. He really worries me on the defensive end at the moment, looks all at sea. Hopefully with time, that can be sorted. I think Turk has been really good so far, you could see we missed him badly in the last quarter of the Spurs game. Hopefully he's back tonight Vs the Celtics. I'm looking forward to the next 6-8 games where we'll find out a lot more. I think we're better than people give us credit for. I guess we'll see.

and since making the above comments, we've lost twice by over 25 and blown a 27 point lead. Think I might have jinxed us!

Haha, maybe.
Van Gundys rotations are pissing me off. How come Von Wafer isn't getting much of run when he's been our spark off the bench earlier this season (besides reddick)?

I would like to see a shake up tonight in Philly. I think we should bench Hedo, move J-Rich to the 3 and start Von. Get some energy into our play. We're gonna need it playing Philly! If it doesn't work, we still have Hedo, Redick coming in as the 2nd lineup. Get Earl Clark into the mix too!
