Spurs top 4 is a given but from there it could go to Dallas or the Suns. With the Clipps, Grizz improving its hard to tell but I would have them in my top 3.
I don't see the Clipps improving, TT for Vlade is a sideways move. Cassell is one year older, although he is an alien so we don't know his actual lifespan. Livingston, meh, I like him but he is not putting the clipps in the top 2.
The Spur are certainly still a championship threat. The center position is overrated by you guys. It's not like any team has a great center and power forward combination anymore. The only good center in the West is Ming and he's got nobody really at the PF position.
Hey Kwaj, are you gonna particiapte in the mock free agency at all?
yeah I will, it's just that I'm pretty happy with my teams right now, so I don't feel the drive to participate in any more transactions. I know I've been slack at keeping up with HH this week, my job is killing me (as is my recreation, if you know what I'm saying ;) )
Spurs are still top 3. But 60 wins without a true C is pure homer talk.
They've been doing it ever since Robinson retired. Center is the most overrated position in the league. The only center who wins games is Shaq. Yao is clearly the 2nd best center and his team was horrendous. Duncan is the best big man in the league, best player, thats enough. Put Scola, Oberto, Horry, Bowen or whoever at PF. PF has become perimeter based for the most part.
Honestly, name a team who has 2 bigs that can score. So Duncan covers one and Parker could guard the other. Seriously, Sacramento are the closest with Miller and SAR, and neither of them play defense.
Spurs only reason for decline is Horry and Bowen or if Parker keeps going Kobe on them. That is probably in fact their biggest flaw.
