That's a good start.
thats a poor start..its just the same as always...a bunch of scorers.
they need some role players...guys with no egos. Kirk Hinrich for example.
Well, considering not even half of the roster is set, I would say that's a good start. You can have as many role players as you want, but without fire power, you have no chance of winning. Jerry did a good job of trying to get the big stars that he wanted first. Those are the players that it will be tougher to bring in.
And I think this first 6 brings a lot to the table.
-Vet. Leadership (Kobe, AI)
-Athleticism (all 6)
-Defense (Kobe, Marion, Arenas)
-Passing (Arenas, AI)
-Up-Tempo Team (Amare, Marion, Kobe, AI, Arenas)
-Pick Pockets (Arenas, AI)
Yeah, they have obvious weaknesses and roles that need to be filled by solid role players, but I think they have done a great job of selections thus far.
I think next they need to lock in Dwight Howard (he and Amare would be a great front court duo).
Colangelo said he's meeting with Shaq, Timmy, and Wade soon. I think we will see Wade commit to the team, but I don't see the other two playing on the team.
