    You might be right, but i will always take my chances with Ginobili on the team over Martin.
    If we could get Kobe, or LeBron, or Wase, i won't be even calling his name. But Ginobili is one of the few players that are not superstars that have that killer instinct. And maybe the only one we have a real shot at.

    We are not getting a Lebron or Kobe so..... Like I said in another post. The Kings actually won more games when he was out with a injury then when he was playing for them. He's nothing but a stat all star and will just delay the developing process of our young guys.

    im not saying that if bron or wade came to houston just saying in general if he were to go to the cavs or lakers that he would be another weapon he wouldnt ruin there chances...the only reason they were better without him is because reke isnt a true pg so when martin came back the offense got stagnant that why beno starts with reke now cuz its beno can handle the ball as we all know kmart has no handles

    AB-PG
    KM-SG
    ARIZA-SF
    BOSH-PF
    YAO-C

    As far as I am concerned, as long as a player gets me 25 ppg efficiently, I really don't care which quarter did he score those points from...

    Brooks is the only player on the roster that has the 'killer instinct'. He's not afraid to throw up shots and has that demeanor. However, I will say that Martin has the ability and tools that he should be the closer, given his advantage in height/length mixed with speed, it would be easier for him to get a shot off.
