OK, so we tanked a few seasons, traded a future #1 and Jordan Hill for the chance to sign Bosh and James; who by most accounts already made a pact with Wade to go to Miami... Now we are going to wait to see if we can get Melo and Paul?!?! Really, do we have to shut down yet again in the slightest, faintest hint that we can sign one of these guys? Enough is enough; once bitten twice shy!!!! Look, there are other players that we can make moves for to make this team better, more competitive and a better match up to our rivals.
One player that I am totally miffed on that seems to fly under the radar is Gerald Wallace. Charlotte has made it know that they would be willing to trade him. He is an athletic freak!! While he is not a long range shooter, he is a proficient defender, scorer and shot blocker. We will have to defend against James, Bosh and Wade!!! While the rest of the team might be a patch work of cheap players, the core 3 will be trouble and we will need athletic players that can defend against them and can force them to defend. Wallace can do this! They could play Wallace at the 4 and Stat at the 5 and reproduce what Mike D had in Phoenix with Marion and Stat. Gallinari at the 3, walker at the 2 and Felton at the 1.... I can live with that and would be the most athletic team on the floor at any given time! They can have a 3 man rotation of Stat, Wallace and Randolph; all athletic all times! NICE!!!! Maybe even try to see if we could trade for Jackson as well... Wallace and Jackson with Stat, Felton, Randolph, Gallinari and Douglas.... If Miami is rated #1 in the east, we would have to be a close (I mean super close) 2!
