What do we need...



 To do to be in the elite category... we seem to "have what it takes" every year, but then, our very blazery world gets blown up, do we need to restart? i dont think thats the answer, go young again like we have been hearing rumors about? sure, but that means giving up Roy because hes knees arent "young" .. is that what we wanna do? or do we make a small trade, tweaking our lineup. OR no trade, and let it play out and let brandon roys knees burn out, Wes mathews play to his potential, and we virtually have the same team with a lot less versatile Roy. It seems to be a number of things. It has always been about who has the big man... Shaq, Walton, hakeem, bird, and obviously MJ didnt have a alltime GREAT big man, but MJ is MJ. Then, in todays game. I feel its the opposite. Who has the Guards. look at Orlando, they have dwight howard as a centerpiece, well great, but us "average" blazers. just beat them. Who is in elite company? the heat, D wade, Lebron, and a skinny post that can shoot and rebound, NOT a bigman. The celtics? Pierce, allen, Garnette, another skinny post who can shoot and rebound. new orleans? chris paul. now, for the one that is the odd one out,   the spurs. okay, Tim Duncan, in the running for the top PF of all time, tony parker, a small, just short of elite company guard. Ginobli, every coaches 6th man dream. this right here is a TEAM. Yes, they have veteran savvy and experience, and it does make some difference, but how are they beating every team on a nightly basis without a standout player? they are a team, and they have awesome guards. yes Duncan is a good player, but hes only averaging 13 pts and 9 rbs. so whos doing the work? tony : 16 pts per game, 7 assists.  ginobli: 20 points, 4 assists. George hill: right now? only averaging 12 pts. how much against us? 22. hes coming along nicely. the four games before us? 20, 11, 17, 16. those are pretty good for a backup! I guess what im trying to say is.... this is now a guards game, instead of working so hard to get oden to produce, lets get over it. yes, keep pryz. he is a Solid C. we dont need much more if we can get the guards. where from? that is the question i am asking your opinion on.
