    Man if feels good to have a legit shotblocking defensive and hopefully rebounding centers again.

    This will help alot for paint defense and the boards, which killed us in the LA series.

    Love it...team had 0 athletic bigs in the playoffs a few months ago now we acquire 2 in a couple of days.

    Rivers was useless in the playoffs.

    Need a solid guard and wing...keep building Billy Joel.

    Perhaps best for Harden only (Russ off court) line ups.

    But he is also a capable lob threat, roller and the ultimate garbage man.



    His swats are probably lethal, imagine Wooten returning a floater right back into Giannis' grill. :D

    What? Its not the death of anything, small ball still works.

    I have no idea why you guys are so regressive when it comes to basektball thinking.

    After a block we can yell, "Woot! Woot!"

    I hate the 'small ball' term. I think the right concept is all 5 players being able to shoot 3 and play switching defense to guard opposing teams big line up effectively. This doesnt have to be small players. The reason Lakers were better than Rockets is because they did this better than us with their roster in the playoffs and it helped that their roster was versitile where their players have height and are capable of shooting 3 and playing great defense.

    Apparently you have some hope that Harden isn't gone sooner than later ?
