    Default vin baker starting forward???

    if the trade for dampier goes thru then it looks like baker will be our starting forward over sweetney because lets face it everybody is a good in the summer league remember frank wiliams last year. what r your thoughts?

    no way, sweetney is a rebounding machine. baker can come off the bench and provide some interior offense.

    i like baker but he is getting older and i dont think it would be a good idea to start him. sweetney is better fit, hes younger and would probably play better as a starter.

    Baker should definetely be backup, give Sweetney a starting position and he will develop into a very valuable player, who knows maybe in the future we could trade him for a big man.

    I don't see how anyone could expect Vin Baker to play a solid, full season...too many issues and too big of a risk

    whoa i wasnt dissing him,i could never diss a person who works hard to improve himself.i just said that just about everybody does well in the summer league. and it was my opinoin that they would probably start baker firstbecause of experience and all. if i insulted anyone especially m. sweetney i apologise

    vin baker sign with this team as a player that would come off the bench. he knows his role here and i dont think he even wants to start.
