    Default Realistic Dream Team for Next Season

    Marbury PG
    Gerald Green SG
    Ron Artest SF
    Johan Petro PF (in an interview in the draft thread he said he would prefer to play pf)
    Magloire C

    Man that would be the best team ever. Young, Athletec, defense, tall, potentiol, blocking, not overpaid and very realistic. It might not be realistic but man that would be the best team ever.

    possible? yes logical? no who would you keep on the bench and who would you trade to get them? or draft with your 3 picks?

    i have a feeling Green is going to College..plus the only names u added were two draft picks and artest/magloire...artest is only paid 6 million a year..magloire is paid around 8.5..how would these trades work?

    you have Malik Rose, Mo Taylor, Kurt Thomas, Jerome Williams, Tim Thomas, Trevor Ariza, Jamal Crawford, Allan Houston, Penny Hardaway, Bruno Sundov, Jermaine Jackson, Jackie Butler and one other draft pick...

    not trying to rip...im just curious of the moves you would make and who you would keep...

    As much as I want Eddy Curry I dont see it happening with the success of Chicago..sooo

    LET GO: Bruno Sundov, Jackie Butler, Jermaine Jackson
    TRADE: Kurt Thomas & 2nd Round Pick for Kwame Brown
    RESIGN: Trevor Ariza
    SIGN: Damon Stoudamire
    DRAFT: Johan Petro, a guard preferably Salim Stoudamire

    C Kwame Brown
    PF Mike Sweetney
    SF Tim Thomas
    SG Jamal Crawford
    PG Stephon Marbury

    C Johan Petro
    F Malik Rose
    F Mo Taylor
    F Trevor Ariza
    F Jerome Williams
    G Allan Houston
    G Penny Hardaway
    G Salim Stoudamire
    G Damon Stoudamire

    that seems more likely...for the start of the season...then who knows by trade deadline...Isiah will work something with Mo Taylor or Penny hopefully not Timmy..

    kwame would be nice, however two shot blocking, defensive minded center that are free agents and very obtainable are dalembert and ratliff. ratliff wants out of portland and would be a perfect fit as an intimidator in the middle. i think he is worth more than the exception, but maybe a sign and trade is a possibility. portland is rebuilding so our ending contracts would be valuable. maybe taking on one of their contract (ala crawford) or giving up a pick would get it done.

    Ok, Two things I have trouble with:

    1) How would we get Gerald Green when he is going to Oklahoma St?

    2) How are we getting Artest?

    do we honestly want artest? granted he is a hell of a player but he is also a distraction and not a leader. i agree that ratliff is a good rebounder and shotblocker paired with k thomas that would be nice, but ratliff is injury prone. how bout swift? he was all the talk in the preseason is he still attainable? can he play centre

    I think I would trade anyone on the team except for trevor and steph for ron and magloire. ron's not overpaid and plays DEFNSE. Gerald Green can still eneter the NBA Draft. GO to the free agency thread I described how we can make these trades and how we can put together this team. I don't feel like writing it over again.

    I think we should go after shareef abdur-rahim he can still put up 20 and 8 if he is given the court time

    if we can keep Tim Thomas, Ron Artest isnt such a great idea... Herb has done an excellent job with TT, forcing him to start his game down low, and work out to the jumpers, and he has shown the results....there are many others out there who would be better than artest, but if we can get him by not giving up Kurt and Sweetney, our two best forwards, i say go for it...

    Shareef is on the decline. We're trying to get younger and better remember! If I had to choose between keeping Tim and getting ron, I think you know what my choice would be.

    Sign John Peter Ramos. I see potential. 6 pts in 5 minutes vs miami. 5 pts in 3 min vs detroit the other day. 7' 3" 275 lbs, 19 yrs old, with experience playing in international tournaments (olympics, sub-21 tourneys). Bring Herb Williams back, Ewing says he'd like to come in if Herb williams comes back. Sign John Peter, develop him and give him playing time (like they've been doing with Sweetney, and maybe more because of our lack of a true center). That's just one pice I'd like. I'm really excited about John Peter. I'd love to see him develop.

    And I really don't know how I feel about Stephon Marbury. I want to love him as our pt guard, but I don't. We'll see when the supporting cast gets better if he's as good as his stats

    Ramos has played games in the NBA? im confused.. i dont think he has, you may have the wrong guy... regarding stephon marbury..he really has tried his entire career, and its not always his fault... he gets teammates shots, assists, points, gets to the line... i really dont think marbury is the reason we lose

    Yeah' hes been playing with the Wizards. They don't play him much. I looked him up the other night and I think he's played maybe 4 or 5 games. It's possible that's either an indication of his value or it's just that hes only 19. I think it's the latter though. I don't know much about Petro, and I'm sure he'd probably make a nice fit, but I'm skeptical because of what's happened with our recent "Next great big man" draft picks.
