My magic crystal balls foresee Isiah having to choose between Stephon and Francis before next season when trading for one of his targets (for example: Harrington, Lewis or Gasol).

Given the bumpy relationship between Larry and Steph, I have no doubt the coach would prefer Francis.

Personally, I don't have anything against Stephon... I believe he's had a lot going against him and has done pretty good given the adversity.

However, his game is almost identical to Francis', with the exception that Stevie has hops that allow him to be a better rebounder and sweet dunker. That's why objectively I think I'd rather go with Francis.

What's your opinion?
