Without another addition inside, they do not have 240 minutes of position time covered. They are much stronger on the wings and can stand for TMac to miss as many as 20 games and still make the playoffs. Unless Yao goes down, they should win 45 or more and make the playoffs, but they are weak at the point, PF, and need a few more minutes behind Yao than Dikembe can provide on a regular basis. They might advance past the first round, but it will take an upset to do it unless they add another C/PF to the roster.

What about k-mart? Send Howard and somebody else to denver. I would love to see him play for any other team than denver. He has not been able to be the player he was in new jersey. So would it work in houston? Good one on one defender, rebounds, and is a nasty dunker. Could contribute something like 15 ppg, 8 rpg, 2 bpg.

No to K-Mart. He's a punk who has an bad temper and an overinflated ego of himself. While he does work hard on the court, there's not a lot of confidence that he'll be able to stay on the court. Plus, his contract is as bad or worse than Howards, if for no other reason than its length.
