break out year? but ya I agree. if there's anyone who can make him better it'd be Nash. also now that's he's healthy I expect elite defense again and at least 10-13 ppg every night. hopefully his 3 ball is more consistent now that he has lift and I'm sure he'll have at least a couple layups a game thanks to Nash and his strength in the paint.

If Ron can be a defensive stopper next season this team will be so dominant.

this team needs a bench to be "so dominant".

he does look good physically, just need sub 35% from 3's and solid 45%+ from field overall, wouldn't mind it at all if he is our version of Battier or Bowen, would be limiting his offense to just corner 3's and spot up 3's but he can exert all his energy defensively instead.

Blake/Duhon
Meeks
Ebanks
Jamison
Hill

Not too shabby. Give me another big to give Jamison some more flexibility and that ranks right up there with the best benchs in the league.

Ron's phone interview on Sportscenter is hilarious!

"I was in Vancouver swimming in lakes and stuff when i heard"

"Jay-Z wanted him in BK so he could make some rap records with him..with the athletes but now Dwight can sit next to Jack Nicholson"

"Dwight can now actually be Superman, he can actually be superman in a movie now that hes in hollywood"

"I'm gunna start bringing a guitar around LA, im gunna bring one to staples center for games, i wanna be a rockstar, im gunna wear guitar shirts and get a guitar chain, thats what im gunna do. ive never played guitar in my life"

"even if i was traded i would have had a going away party...sitting on the beach sipping champagne and red wine talking about the game 7's, have fun!"

I LOVE THIS GUY...really adds some fun to the media :bow:

He better be working on his 3 ball this summer because that's the only shot he should be taking next season. None of this dribble into the paint out of control, contested fadeaway non sense. With the amount of attention our big 4 will be getting there is no reason for him to not shoot a high % from 3.

He can play air guitar if he wants.




Other then that, he only needs to do do two things: play elite defense, and park himself in the corner to practice the 3-pt shot.

That's insane. Can't wait to see him dunking on people next year, when he's doing that, you know he's feeling good.

Man... wow. He has almost no body fat. :man3:

I guess he's really serious this time. Last year he showed up with a gut.

Lets hope he's been improving that perimeter shot, because it seems that's where 90% of his shots will be.

Can you imagine if he could average 35%+ from 3 point land this year? And maintains his aggressive D?

Our starting five would be invincible.
