Now things should begin to get interesting. Lewis is just the beginning. Wallace will more than likely opt out as will Carter.

wonder if Carter and Lewis will go to the Bobcats.

I must rejump on the bandwagon if this happens.


The lineup.

Raymond Felton
Vince Carter
Rashard Lewis
PF
Emoka Okafur

So you're implying that Wallace opt's out of his contract? Maybe so but, IMO we don't get both Carter and Lewis. I would be happy with either one though.

how insane would it be if our starting 5 were Felton, Carter, Wallace, Lewis, and Okafor????

Not that it'll happen. Carter will most likely go to Orlando if he leaves New Jersey. Lewis may resign with Seattle. So our top priority is to resign Wallace.

That is Michael's top priority. At least , that is what we have been told at the Dunkin' Hoops breakfasts by different members of the staff.

Im pretty sure we wont sign VC because Jordan isnt exactly a big fan of his. I can easily seeing us sign Lewis and running a lineup of.
Felton
Carroll/draft pick
Lewis
Wallace
Okafor

Talk about getting up and down the floor. If that were our starting 5 I hope Vincent has an uptempo style because in a half court set we would get demolished.

I think Lewis is more suited to play PF. But I could be wrong.

Also, TarCat, how do you get into these up-close meetings?

If we get Lewis and resign wallace.... it would be a huge mistake to play wallace at PF. His defense was much more effective against perimeter players. Lewis isn't exactly a defender at all. But his frame is bigger and at least with wallace D-ing up the wing we won't have a guy penentrating around Lewis and getting in the lane every time down the floor.

Just because Wallace would be a PF on the offensive end doesnt mean that he has to guard PF's on the defensive end. When we had him and Morrison on the court together last season Wallace would always guard the opposing teams best perimeter player no matter what position he was playing.
