I think Roko will be a more ideal back up to Jose once he gets his strength up and hopefully more range on his shot. His creativity and play making ability is a nice complement to Jose's style, kind of like when Ford was coming off the bench.

Analysis:

Bosh the same improved his mid-range shot.
Bargnani looks real smooth, big improvement not shooting on one leg and not forcing anything.
Solomon looks like a SG. Can really shoot.
Humphries same old, sometimes he can be effective sometimes hes not
Ukic, I like his skillsets its realy good, he jsut needa lot more confidence
Oneal's he's doing alright, jsut needs to get used aroudn bosh. I like the fact he contribues on the reb numbers.
Parker same
Kapono takes it in alot more
Moon has improved his jump shot, but still no signs of attackign the rim.
Calderon still getting his game back and recovering from injury

did i miss anyone?

One more thing I would like to add is that NYK had its starters up 75% of the game whereas we had our starters for about 55% of the game. Basically, we beat them with half of our full effort. This game gave me a bit more confident with our depth. I thought with Ford, Rasho, and Delfino gone, we were unable to generate depth. However, if Hump and Bargs maintain their current form and we get some more production out of Ukic, I'm talking.....solid bench, very solid bench.

I want to see a breakout game for JO, 30pts and 15 rbs, come on you animal, you can do it, I don't care if it's pre-season. I want to see it, but please don't get injurred.

I'm intrigued with the play of the Raps with JO out there. It just looks like a diferent game. Strong interior defense, I mean something I haven't seen from the Raps. On the offensive side double teams in the low post with another big to dish to. Wow with option on the inside and our outside shooting, scoring will once again not be an issue.

I like what I see. My good friend Bargs is looking solid, and Hump has grown bigger and comically even more confident. He's another great pick up by Colangelo. My intial impression is that this could be the best frontcourt in the league. Bosh as the perenial all star, JO with defense we needed so badly, Hump with the energy and hustle and Bargs as the most versatile scoring big the Raps have ever had.

Again, the front court look very, very good.

Having said that, David Lee and Zack Randolph had big games, but a little more time together and the defense will get better.
