    Successful Scenario
    Due to Indiana and Minnesota being over the cap, the 25% trade rule is invoked. Indiana and Minnesota had to be no more than 125% plus $100,000 of the salary given out for the trade to be accepted, which did happen here. This trade satisfies the provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.


    This trade was in response to the ESPN Page 2 article.

    These goofy trade proposals for Hall-of-Fame caliber players aren't really funny or interesting anymore.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Garnett and O'Neal on the same team? Who is going to play center and who is going to play PF? This sounds as silly as putting LeBron and Kobe on the same team or LeBron and Wade or for that matter Kobe and Wade.

    C - Hulk/Polly
    PF - JO/Walker
    SF - KG/Granger
    SG - Jack/Freddie
    PG - Tins/Runi/Gill

    Or JO at the 5, KG at the 4.

    The first is how I would play it... KG definitely has the skill-set to play the 3, plus he becomes even more of a match-up problem.

    The second one is how I think RC would play it. Don't get me wrong, it would work, but how would you defend the first option?

    ***
    My perfect 'type' of line-up with JO and KG on the same team...

    C - Someone who could lurk on the outside for treys; weak-side rebounder
    PF - JO, planted in the paint (attack the basket - don't shoot the 15 footer!)
    SF - KG, up in the high post, distributing and driving
    SG - Someone who with quick feet and could match up against quicker SFs
    PG - Distributer, three-point threat

    This would definitely be a tough team to guard.

    We have some of the pieces... Saras could definitely be the PG... If Foster had Croshere's shooting touch he could be the C. I'm not sure if Jax would fill the SG well in this lineup or not?

    Of course this trade ain't going to happen anyway, but JO and KG could play fine together, KG prefers the high post anyway. JO is our center anyway, regardless were he is officially listed.

    Ever heard of David Robinson and Tim Duncan? Hakeem and Ralph Sampson?

    Twin towers is not a new concept. Houston went to the finals doing it. Spurs won a tltle doing it.


    Pretty silly, huh?
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    At this point JO is playing like KG without the passing, so why
    do it.
