    I think it's debatable if Wood is legit....

    Wallace was playing next to Ben which covered up a lot for him... i like tucker but he's 80 cents to ben Wallace's dollar... maybe it's closer because pj isn't a complete zero on offense like ben was... i don't think any rational person chooses tucker over ben despite the 3 pt shooting and ability to guard more positions.

    That being said they are both undersized terrific post defenders... wallace with more athleticism...

    They did but they didn't win a championship when that was the case...

    Players performance vary through their careers...

    I am gonna wait to say that, they are actually similar if Wood can up his defense he can be better than Rasheed but that's mainly because Rasheed did not fulfill his potential.

    We are a second round team if Wall stays healthy

    I actually watched those teams and watched Prince in college and he was Draymond before Draymond, the numbers don't tell the full story.

    House is not better than Prince offensively and it's way too early for Tate to even be in this discussion.

    Nobody is attacking you stop with the victim card, this is what happens on a discussion board, you make a claim and people refute it sometimes.

    Speaking of contender.

    I mean the Knicks of course.

    Dream's Rockets were CHAMPIONS.

    So how exactly do refute an opinion that someone might be better than someone else at something?

    Go ahead an explain that one... tayshaun is roughly the equivalent of pat Beverley at a different position... good player but no Draymond... it's not ridiculous that a player could get to that level of play...

    Yeah, I think the future isn't as bleak as it felt at the start of this season at least. We have young pieces, we have draft picks, we can are moving in the right direction.

    With a healthy Wood, another big and an all-in approach, we could be a contender. But my feeling is, the brass isn't all-in.

    I don’t see it

    if Wood and John Wall are your top 2 players, there’s no way u can be a contender

    Do I have a chance with Christina Hendricks now since she's divorced?
