KG an Webber played PF because they were PF's who wanted to be guards. Tim Duncan played PF because David Robinson was already on the team. None of them did it because of Shaq.


David Lee as a center? David Lee can't play center. Defensively, your team would be in trouble.

Pek's role tonight was to stop Cavs best player. Nicola had only about 4 feeds all night long, as opposed to his usual 10 or 12, and he missed them all. He didn't completely shut down AV tonight, but he ruined his game pretty thoroughly.
That 15pts & 15rbs went to 4 & 14 and AV going for the Cavs record on double double streak came to a screeching halt.

The game also brought an interesting fact. K Love spent significant minutes guarding the big guy from Cleveland (who spent a lot of time playing power forward), including several minutes at the 5 position: once again ISH rumors about Love's bad defense are fool's game.

My view was Pekovic nullified Varejao to a draw.

Andrea should be off that list hes beyond sucked, Cousins should be lower hes not playing anywhere near potential, Pekovic should be higher than Monroe due to his team being near 500. while being smashed by injury. Dwight even though his stats look good imo should be a bit lower than 2 and I'd have Noah above AV but list seems fair.

yeah that is pretty much how I see it too. Cousins gets eaten by a lot of players and has stats on weakness teams and teammates. Anyone can get right inside his brain with great ease.

Monroe I love the guy's game but it's like...... he just stops in 4Q sometimes. That may be due to similar problems the T Wolves are having though, they can't finish games as a team (in that case guards just freaking right out esp. Barea but Ridnour also... like contagious) not due to a Center failing to defend his paint. Monroe is on ...... not really one of the all-time best Pistons teams.....

I might be the only guy on ISH that believes in Dwight at this point. Maybe because I've had back problems long ago, and know what that does to your physicality? don't know but to me he's pretty much incredible.
