Default See what a Wing player can do!

Do you guys see what a Wing player can do for this team.

Marion drops 34 points and Bosh Drops 21 - 19

That's all we need a Wing player who can drop 20+ points per game. It takes all the pressure off of Bosh.

Thats' ALL we need with the $ Situation right now were in. If it wasn't for money than backup PG new SG. But when you talk about Money situation then a 20+ Wing is all we need.

Too bad this was first time Marion actually carried on the offensive end lol

Trust me a Allstar Wing will make Bosh so much better considering a lot of you guys here don't believe bosh can get any better.

Probably a last ditch effort to get a big contract this off season. It was only one game. But yeah, anybody who drops 30+ along with Bosh playing well should give us a good opportunity to win the game.

Marions game isn't offence. But today he did well with Bosh as a wing. A scoring wing is needed on this team.

We are in need for a good wing. The guy i think we should go after is Von Wafer. Hes really stepped it upp without T-Mac and made the Rockets better. We could probably get him for 6-8 mill. Right now i think hes playing on a min contract and he'll want more but i think he'll be worth it.

Either way Marion isn't our man because he can't do this game in and game out. But as we all saw today a Wing would take the load off of Bosh which would make Bosh even that much better.

We can't have a Allstar Wing and Marion as well. Because Money won't let that happen so we probably have to let Marion go and sign a next Wing.

But a wing player should be our MAIN off season target.

We don't need a Back up point guard because Roko is it, if not than let we should let Roko go because it's pointless to have him if we get a next back up point guard.

Having a Wing + Bosh would be amazing. BUT Bargnani i'm not sure because it would be really hard to spread out the shots. DO YOU THINK MARION WOULD HAVE GOT ALL THOSE POINTS AND SHOTS IF BARGNANI WAS PLAYING? probably not .....

If he is with the team it will be for considerably less money and probably a bench role.

If we could find a Allstar Small Forward with our cap space. Then Parker would be just fine at the Shootin Guard he would simply just need to knock down shots and play his good defense and the Small Forward would take most of the workload off of him everytime. Trust me Small Forward would do WONDERS for this team. Marion is simply just a role player at best.

Stop saying Parker will do fine at SG for us. He is a backup at best and it's one of the main reasons this team didn't do well this season.

Parker would be a great guy to come off the bench, give us quality minutes as a back-up PG and SG, provide leadership and some of the 'glue' this team needs. He can't give us 30+ mins anymore though... just a function of age.

Yea but MLSE can't afford to have a Ben Gordon Shooting Guard and a Shawn Marion Small afford.

I'd rather have a Allstar Small Forward and Parker at th Shooting Guard

i wouldn't want Allstar shooting guard and Joey Graham at Small Foward .....

Who said we need an allstar? We need someone who can breakdown defenders and create. It doesn't have to be an all -star then you use the money on filling the gaps or to buy picks in the draft and fill gaps. Say a guy like RIP or Turkoglu that crete and score and pass would be perfect fits on the raps. You could also put the ball in their hands at the end of the game and they'd probably cost you less then 10 mil a year in the 7-8 mil a year probably. Parker I would like back as a backup and to mentor the younger wings we may have. Use him as the backup PG (when Roko not playing well)/SG. Nothing more.

Ok, don't go that far. Yes, he would be a great bench player. But I think that behind an all-star SF, Parker would be a nice fit. Yes, he is aging. But if we had a contending team, then he can stay. If we don't think we will be making the playoffs period this season, keep him on the bench.

I honestly have to say that although I appreciate your attempt to speak with better vocabulary and correct grammar, I can't help but giggle every time I read one of your posts.
