Thabeet is great on the defensive side of the ball. He can change the flow of a game in a heartbeat. I would pick this player first.
My vision for our starting five:
PF: Big Al
SF: Ryan Gomes
SG: Mike Miller
PG; Randy Foye
Off the bench:
First, I actually hope they don't take Thabeet. Sure he is 7'3, but to me he just has bust written all over him. I think he won't be any better than a very poor man's Deke, or a rich man's Sam Dalembert.
Second, why would you want to move Foye back to the 1 when he is CLEARLY a 2. There is a huge difference in how he plays at each position. I think the 1 is just to much for him and all he should be worrying about is scoring. Hopefully they can either make a trade or sign a decent pg.
I don't think they will tank, they will probably try it keep going. I hope they make some kind of a trade, which probably won't happen. Lol, maybe we could go after Amare. But I really hope they don't tank, that would not be good for this young team. But we need a big man, Love simply can't be our center, and there really isn't anyone else.
