Just playing around here but if you could pick one player from another team that would give the Pacers the best chance for a championship this year who would it be?
The rules of the game:
1. The player that you choose would replace the Pacer's starter at the chosen player's position. In other words if you picked a SG then Reggie would not be on the Pacers roster.
2. Shaq and Yao are on the protected list
3. Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett are considered PFs for this game.
4. Salary cap is not applicable to the transaction.
I would pick Jason Kidd to replace Tinsley. It gives us a player that can penetrate at will and a lock-down defender on the opposition's PG. This would help our big guys out on defense by not having to leave their player and help - keep us out of foul trouble and improve our defensive rebounding. On offense, can you say Reggie for 3 or having the ability to get an entry pass in the post w/ ease.
Initially, I would have picked Stojakovic but I couldn't bear the thought of winning a championship w/o Reggie.
I figure most people would go for PG or C but I'm curious to see what other people think we need the most and what other players can provide it.
