Tony would be better pointswise. I don't know about Speedy's injury.

SPeedy's a backup. Fisher will probably start in GS

wait... did you say that Nash is still available?? I'd take him first. Don't go with Claxton... If Fisher ends up coming off the bench then pick him up off of waivers...

If you can, I would take Dalembert in a heart beat... He will help you with FG%, Blocks and Rebs... he just doesn't score much...

How is this a question? Parker over Claxton, no doubt.

Who's your starter, if Parker is your backup?

Sleeper? :laugh:

You can't be serious? Is he even on anyone's roster right now? Comatose might be a better word choice. :D

I don't know if you always intend to make me laugh, but I certainly get a kick out of some of the things you say.

OT, There's a nice article on Duce and The Bus over at the PPG today. I think you'll enjoy it if you haven't read it yet.

Okur is by far your best bet.

Theo Ratliff is your clear #2.

The Dark Horse? Kwame Brown.

I was thinking Okur as well...but do you really think he'll be getting a lot of rbs/pts with Kirilenko and Big Boozer down there?

AK47 isnt a scorer, he'll defer to Memo on that end.

Okur also gte a lot of rebounds in transition.

IN an up-tempo game, Okur should excel

As for Dalembert, he's going to be a shot blocking specialist, but he wont touch the ball much, if at all.

Hey, at least someone got it. Yeah, of course, I was referring to Action Jackson; and, of course, I was just joking. I don't believe he is on any roster, as of yet. ;)

Thanks for the heads-up...I'll check it out, Jay.

That article showed a lot about Coach. Good man.

Claxton is healthy, but he isn't durable. He has yet to stay healthy for an entire season in the NBA.

He may or may not start this year. Fisher was told he would be given "starters minutes" between both backcourt positions. Also, when Mullin talks about the future of the Warriors he always mentions the names Dunleavy, Richardson, Murphy, and Pietrus. Sometimes Claxton will be mentioned, sometimes he won't.

He put up "good" but not "great" numbers for me last year (I had him in 2 leagues) and doesn't have a lot of off nights when he plays. Parker was pretty up and down last year (I had him in one leauge) but I usually played him ahead of Speedy. Parker is capable of more "big games". I'm hoping this year he'll be a little more consistent.

Dalembert or Ratliff.
I would've put Nene as the 3rd pick there but with Martin in Denver who knows how that will affect his number?

I've really been studying him - via press conferences, things players say about him, things his assistant coaches say about him, articles like this one, for about a decade. I truly believe he's the best coach in all of professional sports.

Well, he's got to win a Super Bowl first, but his consistency in the regular season and getting the Steelers to advance in the playoffs more often than most teams even make the playoffs has to count for something.

Then again, he's following in the footsteps of the living legend that made me a Steelers fan in the first place. Yeah, he's got to win one Super Bowl in Pittsburgh.

Well wish me good luck...here is my team:

Marbury/Parker
Vince:mad:/J-Rich
Jefferson/Rashard Lewis
Nowitzki/Kenny Thomas
SHAQ/Memo

If Ratliff or Dalemburt were available you should of taken them over Memo. Dalmeburt will have a big year and Ratliff is a shot blocking machine.
