I disagree on Snyder.

The one who I want to see in the lineup though next year is Mason he can get a lot better for them. Mason can guard the SG and Peja plays SG on offense. I have a feeling Mason can produce a lot more for them next year.

About West I agree he is overrated but Simmons has no range, is raw, and will probably be on the bench for a couple years.

Not really. If semi-healthy SA, Dal, Phx, Sac, Hou and Lac are clearly better teams. Mem, Den, Lal are at least on even terms. Even Uta, Min and Sea (strong season finish) cannot be counted out. It makes them better, but in the West there are no guranatees for middle of the pack teams.

My problem with givng Peja that huge of a contract is that he is basically a clutchless, defenseless, softie! I mean its one thing to overpay for a person who is a clutch player, but when the playoffs begin, Peja is gone fishing! Plus the fact that he has declined in the past few years. The Pacers are doing the right thing and not resigning him, they got some talented small forwards and they need to dump salary.

GMs think with their heart instead of their heads. Logic dictates no way is Peja worth that anymore. I don't think he was EVER worth that. Great shooter...that's about it....

I agree.

Give Vlade 5 years, $40 million instead of giving Peja that money.

After three years, Peja's body will be shot and they will be paying him a ton of money for 2 years of sitting on the bench in street clothes.

Plus they are going to have to go give big contracts to Paul, West, and their two first rounders in the near future while having Peja on the books.

SAC has frontcourt issues and no coach. Memphis could be looking at an offyear as they've just traded skill for potential and have nothing at the PG or C spots. Denver? Mediocre team last year, they're going to lose Kmart, eh. Utah I doubt it, they're outmatched all over the place, and who can trust Kirilenko's health? Minnesota's the second worst team in the West, and Seattle could lose Wilcox and still after all this don't have a Center. I simply cannot see these guys not getting in. They shoulda done it last year, with a raw roster, no wing players whatsoever, and a thin frontcourt. Injury's the only thing keepin' em out.

GeeWiz stop talking out of your ass like GOBB said. It is obvious that Petrie will fix the frontcourt problems and Musselman will be a good coach. Kings get a new PF that blocks shots and we will have a better frontcourt than the hornets. I'm not sure why you think the hornets are better than all those teams. Denver's going to trade KMart, re-sign Nene, and get a new shooting guard. They will be better than NOK. They're already more talented than NOK. If they didn't have so many injuries last year they would've probably been a 50 win team.

David West is pretty good...he has a nice smooth mid-range jumpshot.

Frontcourt issues, yes. No coach, no.

Why? Granger fits what they're tryign to do in Indiana more than Peja. They know their not going to win a title anytime soon, so why overpay a mediocre player to just make the 2nd round a few times and then be saddled with a bad contract? Indy needs to destroy and rebuild their entire roster.

I like this time of the year man. The Hornets could finally make the playoffs. Great move for them since theyve made it known that theyd want a shooter. Sucks for Indiana. Maybe that's why they drafted Shawne Williams and might start Granger at SF. But damn, the West is just looking like a powerhouse so far.

Actually, it's not official at all. He can't sign with them yet.

This makes me beleive you just quoted somebody else. Everyone on here knows him and his coach don't vibe

It's a shame about Peja. He could be a very deadly weapon on any team but he's being judged for his price tag. He is still a phenomenal shooter. Two years ago the people on this board thought he was the best in the NBA.
