Howard is trying to jump on Gerald Wallace's team to get a championship. He and Derron Williams look desperate.

Ya wow, my opinion of Dwight has changed alot this year. Talk about a spoiled guy, he got his coach fired,played unmotivated this year and is whining about a "blackmail" in his clause. Makes me feel a little better knowing Bismack seems to have his number.

We want Steve Nash to go to Portland so we can get their pick. He would instantly make that team a threat in the West. Also I dont want to sign a big name just yet. Lets let things play out another season.

My dream would be to sign Scott Machado out of Iona and then trade DJ for a future pick. I like Hendo and do not want to move him. He's a good player that will help us move forward.


Agree on everything except the Hendo part.

Give me some reason why you disagree with the Hendo part. So I can crush your opinion.

are you a Duke fan? Hendo is good but in no way would I pay him starting SG type money. Good bench player for a contending team.

JJ Hickson is another high energy player. Great skill set around the rim to. He doesn't make much money. I wonder what kinda deal we could work out for him, considering he'd play a much larger role here than in Portland.

I don't like that they want to force the whole Bismack center thing. I wish they make
him a PF and bring in a Center who can score.

I actually prefer Biz at Center and feel like they shouldn't force him to be PF. He doesn't have the range to be a PF and I think he does better guarding on the block against Centers. There are only a handful of Centers he has problems with but he was a rookie last year so I think he can improve.

I like the idea of Hickson, Ersan Ilvasova(bucks), Jason Thompson (RF from Kings) or Jamison to help teach

If we do think Biz is a PF my realistic Center choices are Spencer Hawes (unlikely), Hamed Haddadi, Memphis Grizzlies or take a flyer on top pick busts like Hasheem Thabeet or Greg Oden(if healthy).

Hickson, Biyombo, TNT?'

Two out of three isn't bad.

On top of that Hickson is still very young and would be a great piece to add at the power foward position to create a one-two punch with Biyombo.

In no way has J.J reached his full potential either.

Biz has a lot of range and quick feet to guard PF. He would also be a mismatch for most
PF on the offensive end. He's best position would be PF where his wingspan and
explosive hops would give him a advantage most nights. Playing against 7'0 footers
gets him mostly in foul trouble.

I have been reading that everyone will be shocked if Hickson signs anywhere other than Golden State.

If I'm Hickson, I would think the Bobcats would be the place to go.

- He would probably just get a two year deal, so if we still suck in three years he can bail
- He would be close to home
- He would probably start
- He would have the chance to be a big part of the future of this franchise

Pro's and Cons of signing with the Warriors

- He is a sub
- He has a chance to go to the playoffs
- He probably receives less money
- He is not a huge part of the Warriors franchise.
