Question is this for last season or this upcoming season? If it is for this upcoming season this was terrible done.
Yao Ming is out for the entire season. Tracy Mcgrady is out for half the season. Josh Howard always gets injured. Manu is old and will get injured. The only thing you had right was the PFs and PGs.

This Upcoming Season
C: T. Duncan/M. Gasol
PF: D. Nowitzki/ D.West
SF: R.Gay/R. Jefferson/T.Ariza
SG: O.J. Mayo/M.Ginobili/T. McGrady
PG: C.Paul/ T.Parker/ M.Conley

Last Season:
C. Y. Ming/T.Duncan
PF: D.Nowitzki/D.West
SF: R.Jefferson/R.Gay
SG: O.J.Mayo/Manu Ginobili
PG: C. Paul/ T.Parker
Mayo dropped 32 on both T-Mac and Ginobili as a rookie.

I was waiting for your response... and I meant like when the players are healthy... How did I know you would put Gay and Mayo as starters

Ariza over Marion?

Also, Josh Howard is being converted to a SG this year.

call me crazy but I actually agrees with OJ . Gay is better than Jefferson or Howard. Id take Mayo over Injured TMAC and Ginobili unless they can prove they are healthy.

Why is it on all "create a teams" in ISH as well as with my homies in 2k9, people will pick Duncan and make him a Center. Yet the same people will go down fighting to say he's a power forward?

This season's Southwest team s/b

C - Duncan / Okafor
PF - Dirk / West
SF - Gay / Marion
SG - Manu / Mayo
PG - Paul / Parker

Has anyone forgotten how old Mcgrady played like last year? I just don't think he'll come back as strong as before.

I would take Mayo over an aging unhealthy Manu anyday. Manu hasn't been healthy since before the 06 olympics. If Mayo was a better in head to head competition as a rookie why wouldn't he be beetter in their second year.

manu played 75 regular season games in 07 and 74 regular season games in 08 (career year in which he carried the team for significant stretches)

mayo might have put up better numbers (in 4 losing efforts) due to the fact that manu was coming back from injury this past year (those games took place between 11/24 - 1/02, note manu only played 11 minutes in the first game) and while mayo was a pretty big focal point in his offense, manu was focused on getting his legs underneath him.

that sampling isn't a very objective comparison of the two players imo
