Now then, my hope is that Turner becomes the mainstay starter at two guard, with Meeks as our Aaron Mckie-esque guard. In addition to that, I'd like to swap Iguodala/Young's roles. For Holiday/Turner to mesh, they need an off-the-ball player in the lineup and Iguodala simply isn't that. If Young ever gets around to developing a three point shot outside of that corner area, we could be looking real sexy.
I'd also like to draft a back-up PG.
Lou's not a point guard in any capacity, the fact that players like him and Jamal Crawford are deemed important to a team should show you just how badly we miss bigs in today's NBA.Meeks will be our Lou, much more efficient at it though. For this purpose, I'd try my hand at Boston's Avery Bradley. Scouted to have a strong defensive game, but lacks an offensive punch. We can round him out and he'd be the perfect guy to spot Holiday for minutes. Something like Speights and a future second and cash considerations should get it done.
Who would you pick in the draft?
The answer's obviously Kenneth Faried. In a draft full of questions, Faried's rebounding, shotblocking ,long arms and hustle are the surest thing you can get. Adding Faried to our front court with Brand would be great.
Somewhere around 15 million is the NBA MAX, right? In 2013, Howard is a free agent. Our core at this point is complete for title contension, all we need is Howard to sign the dotted line. And he will, once Miami falls, he'll realize it takes more than superfriends to win. In short, I leave you with this:
It's an excellent mix of offense and defense in both lineups, especially if Meeks continues to show development in his driving game. I'd like a third shooter if I'm to be honest, and this team is only gonna go as far as Turner takes it. But the concept is there.
We're a Dwight Howard away liberty Ballers
