    ...who would you choose?

    Need someone with size (at least 6'7") and agility (a wing) and with experience guarding the perimeter (no traditional centers).

    My pick is... Robert Horry.

    Vernon Maxwell? Ron Artest? But a little under-sized but crazy.

    Maybe '92 Pippen. Not the lazy, entitled, broken down version the Rockets had in '99.
