mark my word: Bargs is going off this year. Bigs take longer to develop, and he will have had summer under Jown Lucas learning a postion that he had never player up until last year.

I still have a little bit of hope left in Bargnani. He better not let us down.

At 22, Bargs still has room to improve... i really hope that he plays well this coming year... i see that he has good fundamentals (dribbling, shots, turning), just that his bball senses are very bad!!! especially on D

If Bargs can't emerge from that group...we're in serious trouble, and so is his NBA career.

Someone might still pay AB mid level if he scores 10ppg in his final year.

Bargnani needs to be our best bench player, or else our bench will be embarassing.

Bargnani needs to be our best player off the bench, if not his career is in trouble.

Umm... Jamario Moon WILL start hopefully... thats the kind of player you want to improve because he has alot of potential to be a really great player feel me?

but anyways the only players i expect to play good are

Kapono
Bargs
Hump

in no order.

Don't be surprised if Kapono starts. Look at the bench if you put kapono on it. We have no defense, no rebounding, nothing when it comes to getting the ball. But if we put Kapono in the starting lineup, Moon on the bench, we can still have someone who can get the second unit the ball of an offensive or defensive rebound.

I'd prefer Moon starting personally, because we have to keep that rebounding and defence out there personally. Hopefully Moon will cut off the ball a bit more this season.

However, this wouldn't even be a problem if Sam actually mixed and matched his lineups sometimes instead of just throwing the 5 bench guys on the floor at a time.

Moon can start the first little bit of the game while Bosh and J'O get established and Kapono can come off later for scoring.

Well Moon is no spring chicken, so I don't know how much more he'll improve. There is no way Moon ever becomes great...he is servicable. I like Kapono starting. He did a good job in Miami. Moon is a nice energy guy off the bench.

Roko, Moon, Bargs, Hump as our bench rotation is a good combination of skill sets I think. Ideally you add Parker to that list and have an upgrade at the starting SG.

Jose
Pietrus
Kapono
Bosh
JO

Roko
Parker
Moon
Bargs
Hump

That is a solid rotation. Still super deep and well balanced O and D in both the starting rotation and bench.

Man, if Bargs doesn't bust out our bench may be the worst in the nba.

Roko - We don't know yet how he will play at the NBA level

Adams - Gritty guy and i actually like his game in NJ but he couldn't stick in the NBA so what do i really know.

Moon - Great energy guy and will provide rebounding on a rebounding deficient bench but not a scorer so if bargs doesn't break out you have to wonder where the bench points will come from

Hump - If he can somehow get it through his head that he is there to be a role player than he is def a serviceable big man, but problem is he still doesn't seem to get it

Graham - Ugh..no need to say more

Bargs - If he doesn't bust out...look out

Our bench is RIDDLED with questions marks. Best case scenario, we have a decent bench. I don;t even want to discuss worse case scenario.

I'd say either Moon or Bargs.

Both of them are needed to play well off the bench next year.
