To top it off, they add Arenas, who is not only injury prone, but just doesn't seem to have the fire to play like he used to. This doesn't make sense because I thought Jameer Nelson was a perfectly capable PG for this team.
I would anticipate Nelson still being the starter. What surprises me is they got rid of Gortat. Hopefully we can exploit that when Howard gets in foul trouble.
