    With Yao it's stating the obvious. The problem is in 24 he wont make a significant enough contribution needed to put us over the hump. We need other guys like KM and Budinger to stepup for the things we will miss from Yao. Bioth those guys will need to have significantly better seasons.

    Should have rephrased the Karl cancer comment, makes it sound as if Karl passed away.

    Interesting he bigged up the Mavs and Spurs and left out the Celtics. I would consider Celts more of a title contender than those two teams

    where is the "big fall" for us?

    limited Yao Ming + current roster = fighting for a playoff spot
    current roster - Yao Ming = fighting for a playoff spot

    He said with Yao we could fight for a top seed in the playoffs. Without Yao we would fight just to be in the playoffs.
