It depends on what position hurts us the most on defense. From what I gathered over the season, it's been the small forward spot.
The point guard penetration won't make a difference with two seven footers in the middle. That said, if a point passes out near the three point line, we're in deep trouble because no starting forward on the team can guard worth a crap.
Ariza is a nice option but I really don't think he's ready for the starting job. His jumper is suspect along with the ability to create his own shot. His ballhandling isn't very good either. I know he has a whole summer to get better but I can't help the fact that they're players available who can provide immediately.
