    Implication being? It’s just what the doctor ordered, especially when launching 3’s dies or the game slows down in the half-court.

    That original post where you made rules and immediately turned around and forgot to follow them.. epic, brilliant, careful thinking, incredible overconfidence of you to reply to me like that too. You're amazing. Deep waters indeed.

    2020 could use more drama.

    What? It’s sarcasm bro. Alston was an awful shooter. Historically bad shooter. I remember a stat posted here.

    He's slow. He still hasn't even figured out that Ron Artest was actually an All-Star even though I gave him the information in direct form. No hopes in deep waters.

    Pre we-know-our-rights DMo

    He was a legend here, shoots, rebounds and solid defense (almost)

    everyone's mentioning a lot of folks at 2/3 spot with defense, so... the only one i'm missing there is a healthy Luc Mbah a Moute

    Trez, Carl Landry, Luis Scola for some rebounding, toughness, and touch around the rim. PnR too.

    aside from that? Lou Williams would be that X factor if EG can't do it.

    How does he want to be remembered? “He had fun.”
    Robert did by winning big games. I hated losing him. He would be my pick.

    Moochie norris. He could defend the five with his fro, yet quick enough to stay with guards. With an added bonus, he could lend his headband to James, so he could go off for one of those headband games at halftime. Pretty simple choice here.

    Prime Vernon Maxwell next to Harden would be fun.

    Just stop. You’re clearly getting satisfaction out of this. Pathetic.

    Kevin Martin would be interesting.

    He did have his best scoring year as a Rocket. He averaged about 21-22 a game I believe. Wouldn’t move the needle on defense, but it is what it is. This is a scoring-emphasized league (and team for that matter) without a doubt.
