This is a very long but interesting article. If I didn't know any better I would think this is about the Knicks.Contenders across the league have built teams with a similar template: acquire at least one star player, establish a hard-nosed culture based on playing a disciplined defensive system, and make a splashy trade if necessary to complete the roster.
It details the importance and make-up of viable PLAYOFF teams, that being at least a shooting star (duh) and 1 if not 2 shot blockers- something some have advocated for us for some time.
Obviously we'll try for James. Our second best option (sans CP3) is what's debatable.
Here's the top shot blockers today:Howard, Horford, J Smith, Bynum, Gasol, Camby, LBJ, Millsap, Diaw, Pachulia, Marion, Noah, T Allen, Bryant, J Oneal, K .artin, Webster, Anderson and Boozer.
