I realise tonight will be focussed on Shumpert, and don't get me wrong he impressed immensely, however this topic will be dedicated to an unsung hero. Balkman was brilliant. I mean we all knew he could defend and that he was one tenacious Puerto Rican; what about his offense though? I think he's got more offensive talent than most of us initially believed. He needs to get serious minutes if these sort of displays become consistent. Maybe not a junk contract afterall (still early days though)

Two more issues that stand out:

1. Definitely definitely need a PG. Douglas is not it, and Bibby only makes for a decent backup

2. Fields picked up where he left off in the playoffs. Not good.

Still, it's pre-season. Get Baron Davis in and it's a wrap for the year me thinks.
