It's quite possible we win close to 60 games again with all that scoring and we likely have the 9-12 pick in next years draft in addition to our own.
On the other hand he brings a lot of defensive intensity, and raises the rest of our defenders to a new level.
Only time will tell.
I assume you are talking about Orlandos pick they will be in the playoffs. ANd the Pistons are goin to be a below average rebounding team now. Without a serious rebound on there team.
Nazr / McDyess
Sheed / McDyess
So McDyess and Sheed are a yr older. Chauncey is not goin to be as good as he played last yr. Prince is goin to be asked to do more and Nazr has never proven a thing outside of servicable. This team will/should make the playoffs but I can see them missing the playoffs all together. Not just because the lost Big Ben and broke up the Mo Town 5 but because they are not a young team. Sheed is shooting to many 3's Rip can't create his own shot and McDyess is gettin older. And they still have zero bench outside of McDyess
Indy / Detriot / Philly
