    6'4 PJ Tucker or 6'4 alligator arm Eric Gordon ? Also there is this rebounding issue that is still a big problem.

    Zhou QI - If he can defend peak Durant, I don't see why he can't defend the rest

    If we lose we'll just blame Harden. Until he asks for a trade. They are not even trying. We're too damn small and it's as if these guys can't see it.

    Sadly it's looking like Tucker and House are really our only options.

    How about 6'2 Chuck Hayes? He just keeps getting shorter with each post!

    Gary Clark? Wasn't he well thought of for his defense in college?

    Hart, at a 3 fouls per quarter pace?

    House is supposed to be competent at D. Tucker is decent.

    But not a lot of joy, so far.

    This is a fresh take on the roster's current state. Thanks for starting it.

    they are going to front them with D house and give them the two pointer over the top..CC will provide help defense...we are just conceding the 2 to them, hoping to score more threes....

    against the lakers we'll pick and roll boogie and bron to death every time down the court.

    Tucker/Green/House currently. Until the Rockets make a trade for Igoudala that is.

    Not worried about guarding them to be honest. We've been through peak Durant surrounded by Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

    The real question is how on earth will we score 100 on:

    Harrell
    George
    Kawhi
    Shamet
    Beverley

    Defensive insanity. If Harrell shows up with a 3pt shot, these guys are easy favorites. Like the Raptors though, everyone will underestimate them because their strength is their defense more than their offense.

    Let's take this moment to acknowledge and remind ourselves of the excellent job our boy Harden was doing on KD before he went down

    5'9 Ant-man Clemons will hit the enlarge button and handle all them.
