    Weird, I don't think there is a chance of this happening. I think it is a certainty. I personally don't care for Jones too much. His help D is bad, and he gets pushed around in the post. It drives me nuts. Now D-mo, someone who I thought was soft, has shown me something these past few weeks. This team would be better with him in the starting unit. His positioning, as well as his ability to hold his own on the block has made him a plus defender.

    It's early but if he continues at this type of production what kind of contract might he be offered?

    Exactly what we needed at the trade deadline.

    Our bench needs major help on defense, he adds to this. Very long, athletic wing that can hit the three.

    This team will be really scary if we can add Granger.

    Teams will have a hard time making up points, with a bench lineup of Hamilton, Granger and Asik.

    We may have one of the better benches in the league now. Asik, Lin, DMo & JHam.

    Folks, I believe we are closer then we think

    Na fam, your undervaluing T.Jones contribution. Jones athleticism changes the way defenses buckle down on Dwight. Jones is able to keep other PF's off balance by doing a quick jab step to the basket when teams overplay Dwight, then he either gets a easy rimshot, or alley to Dwight. Basically, he keeps the defense honest. Now DMo has outplayed him recently. But Jones's quickness is what seperates him from DMo. Jones's help D bad? Don't know about that either

    Dmo's post and pnr defense is certainly more sound. A bit too European for my tastes, but you can do that when you have Dwight as your anchor. I like that he's using his size to contest the shot instead of trying to block. It keeps him out of foul trouble. However, his rotations are a still a little late.

    That I shouldn't have doubted Daryl Morey. And, he's definitely one of us already.

    It's because he's a legit 6'7" while others are addling up to 3 inches... Jordan Hamilton is only about half an inch shorter than the beloved Kevin Love. This is case with Durant who is a legit 6'9.
