This is the closest we have been to being a Elite team in years. We have the makings of the most dominant front line in the East with Curry and Randolph. Both are 20-10 capable players. Are only weakness is a consistent guy at the 3 position who can give us 18 points a game ,solid defender and can create for himself. I don't fear the Cavs ,Pistons or Bulls.
The Pistons are not as athletic at the center position without Ben Wallace ,the Bulls have no inside prescence on the offensive end and rely so much on guard play to get majority of there points. We have the makings of a inside out attack. If we make that move for Artest ,which i would do ,we are a 50 win team easy and top 3 seed in the East which puts us in that 2nd round or ECF as long as we don't choke.
C Eddie Curry
PF Zack Randolph
SF Ron Artest
Potentially thats a top 3 seed in the East.
