    Default Stop trying to emulate the Heat! Try to Emulate the Lakers.

    Ok. So Everyone keeps going on and on about "You need a big 3" and "every championship team had 3 great player!"


    While it is true a Big 3 can win a title (for EX Boston in the 80s/00, a few of Micheal Jordans teams, Lakers in the 80s, 1970 Knicks with Clyde, Earl, Reed)

    A big two with both veteran and Promising young role playersis also a good way to do it. Look at the Lakers.

    Kobe and Gasol with alot of roleplayers.

    Look at the Heat. They can have 1 superstar out there with a cast of mediocre role players.

    now look at the Lakers. they can have Kobe out there with Odom, Fischer, Brown and Artest, and Kobe with Matt Barnes and Steve Blake!

    This is what we need to do to become a championship contender.

    Ok so next year this is what we do.

    Turiaf will most likely pick up his Option

    Pick up Shawne Williams team option (800k)

    Pick up Derrick Browns team option (800k)

    Grab a backup PG vor vets minimum (Arroyo?)

    resign Roger Mason for 1 million

    Trade Andy Rautins to Toronto for a 2nd round pick

    With the 2nd round pick draft Dwight hardy to replace Rautins and do his job 10x better!

    With our 1st round pick draft Kenneth Faried!

    then we have like 5 million in cap room.

    With that we sign Deandre Jordan!

    This will give us enough big men to challenge the Heat and Celtics!

    PG: Chauncy Billups
    SG: Landry Fields
    SF: Carmelo Anthony
    PF: Amare Stoudemire
    C: Deandre Jordan


    C Ronny Turiaf
    PG/SG Toney Douglas
    C Kenneth Faried
    SG/SF Bill Walker
    SF/PF Derrick Brown
    SF/PF Shawne Williams
    PG Carlos Arroyo
    PG/SG Dwight Hardy
    PG Roger Mason
    15th spot: I think we need a tough backup PF to add to this spot.

    Also give the Hottest rookie in the game an extension!!!!!!!

    Default well..

    Well, Kobe is the best in the league. He is the most developed and experienced out of all the top players. You can have a team like that when you have a player like Kobe/Jordan. Not all the top players are equal. You can't just bunch a group of them together and expect it to go perfect. Kobe is good all around. There isn't another player like him atm. Yeah, you have explosive players but everyone else has flaws. Kobe doesn't have many weaknesses because he's solid all around. That said, I believe Dwight Howard is going to L.A. to be with Kobe. Weather is perfect for him and Phil Jackson already has a game plan mastered around their style. Chris Paul would be a good trade to the knicks if he decides to take pay cut because he isn't the same after his injury. I'd rather have Deron Williams traded to the knicks. If we can't get either, billups/douglas is fine but we need a deeper bench with solid defenders.

    Our Bench is weak and Carols Arroyo stinks and will never play on a good NBA team.

    DeAndre Jordan is good but nobody is trying to do what the Heat are doing.

    We have 3 solid players, but Fields is a below average starting 2guard.

    He is an ideal 6 man, and we could use some energy guys that have some muscle and can rebound.

    I guess we will live with the bench for this season and grab one or 2 guys this offseason.

    I really really agree with this. I would rather have Melo and Amare and build the rest of the team with decent role guys.
