The only thing that Kidd does better than Billups is rebound, but that's because he has to. They have no big men, and never really have while Kidd has been there. Billups never had to worry about that, with the Wallaces, Prince, and McDyess. Billups scores more, has a better shot, and can play defense just as well, if not better than Kidd. They both dish out the dimes (8.6 for Billups and 8.4 for Kidd last year). I'm not going to say that Kidd isn't a great player, because he is, but right now Chauncey is the better point guard.

How can they have the best starting lineup when they lost their centerpiece and didn't even make the Finals last year?

If Sheed turns into an over-20ppg scorer, then yeah. Best team in the league hands down. If not, no.

Depends on who they start. If Dice starts I'd still rank the Pistons number 1. They'd have absolutely no bench at all, but Dice can average 15 and 10 with starter minutes.

Suns will have best line up hands down, but their bench still sucks thus they are not the best team in the league.

am I the only person who thinks sheed can be as if effective, if not more so than jermaine o neal if only he would stop pretending like he's a point guard and stop hovering at the frickin three point line?

there's absolutely no reason this guy cannot average 27 / 12 / 3 blocks

First of all, Kidd rebounds a lot because that way its easier to lead the break..not because his teammates cant do it. The only thing that Billups has over Kidd is his shot. Kidd is better in every other aspect of the game, ESPECIALLY defense. So Kidd = better pure pg.
