    Fiction, getting Yao Ming, TMac, Artest, and Battier in to those teams will be hard.

    F/F, Rockets will have another 15+ winning steak.

    Fiction: Ron artests hairstyles are like billboards. Hes done it in the past for his Tru Warier record and for the Kings.

    Fact or Fiction: Brent Barry will made a ridiculous buzzer beater shot a la Spurs vs Nuggets in the 1st round of 05 (or it was vs the kings in 06, I can't remember :eek: )

    Fact, and I'll even say he'll do it more than once.


    Fact or Fiction: Even with a great regular season record, will we still struggle a bit in some series, maybe not sweep, but have an 8th or 7th seeded team take us to 7 games in 1st round and have the next team take us to a 6 or 7 game series?

    False - he'll average about the same 21-22ppg, especially due to higher efficiency on his shots

    F/F:
    We get a combined 85ppg from our starters(if Artest is starting)

    Fact - Morey will get a pg in the near future but AB will get a chance to prove himself this year or else he will be canned next year.

    F or F - We will end up playing the Jazz in the first round of the playoffs for the 3rd straight year. And Kirilenko will throw many phantom flops but taking one too far by deliberately breaking his own nose on the hardwood floor.

    I'll go with fact. Alston, Hayes and Dorsey should make it. Yao, T-Mac and Artest also have an outside chance. ;)

    FoF? "Get Red" is an awkward slogan.

    Since he beat me by mere nanoseconds

    True - not only is it awkward, it's stupid

    It's tough for 3 players on the same team to score that much in the same game, no matter how good they are, so I'll say fiction.

    FoF? Derived from the last question, will each member of our Big 3 have 10+ games of 25 points or more?

    Fact, you just need a couple of 40pt games from Tmac and RonRon and Yao will get the rest of the points

    F/F: Aaron Brooks will see some NBDL time this season.

    Fiction, until we get a better backup option. Then, maybe.

    FoF? Francis will average under 5 mpg this season.
