    Haha how many PFs we will keep :) I just hope we can start the season injury free, we can truly start afresh so no focus on players who left, Martin still being here etc. I also hope the veterans get some rest and the youngsters will get a lot of minutes, have some experiments with a tall line-up, a youngster lineup, a fast lineup etc. Have White play PG, Lin at SG, D-Mo at center, TJ at SF, Lamb at PG etc. Just hope for excitement all around and no negativity!

    Hopes: The rookies develop and players like Asik, Lin and Parsons continue playing strong, K-Mart plays lights out and trade value rises.

    Fears: Lin's knee is worse than we are lead to believe, Parsons goes into a sophomore slump, K-Mart struggles and trade value declines.

    I say we end up with 5 PFs.

    C- Asik
    PF- Patterson
    SF- Parsons
    SG- Martin
    PG- Lin

    Yeah, I was wondering how someone gets to make "official" threads. Do you have to have a certain number of reps or posts or something?

    It's only officially official if it gets stickied.

    I hope Patterson gets benched. He really can't do anything.

    The only reason I titled it official is because I'm officially excited about this team and camp!

    I'm excited but would be more if we traded Martin, Morris and Patterson to Utah for Jefferson and Raja Bel

    You could probably get one by becoming a contributing member of at least $10,000.
