    Jordan Hill benefited from some consistent playing time and coaching.

    McHale doesn't seem to be very good at player development.

    Did Parsons, TJones, Beverley and Daniels not figure into your equation?

    It's funny. Because none of that happened when Chuck was playing for us. He usually shutdown his man and was a beast on the boards, especially offensively.

    He was good assistant for the Oakland A's and used to the Moneyball strategy

    Actually, it did. That's not to mean that he didn't do admirably for a 6'6 center and his defense is stellar when he gets someone that isn't too big for him, but there were times where the bigger centers in the game were just too much for him. He's probably the ultimate tweener, height of a SG, build of a PF, game of a C.

    Not my first choice when it comes to former Rockets but he would be a nice backup center option and decent defender to help replace Asik.

    Excellent 15-20 minute guy and good enough to be a starter for times where Dwight is out for a few games.

    Only player I'll give you is Parsons. And even that is debatable

    Yes! Get Chuck Hayes and bring back the 'goon squad'. I would say bring back Brooks again but I don't think we'll resign him for a 3rd time.

    Out of those 5 I would only want Ariza, Lowry and Hill back.

    Bud is too injury prone (sadly) and Landry just hasn't been the same. Plus, he only played 18 games last year for the Kings.

    This team as currently constructed can benefit greatly with the addition of Ariza and Hill. If hill was on the team last season Aldridge wouldn't have killed us in the playoffs and Ariza being able to guard the 2&3 positions would've taken pressure off Harden. As long as the price is right I'd welcome the acquisition of both guys

    You remember his defense incorrectly. Post defense was his specialty, even against the biggest centers in the league. Bothered Bynum, Gasol, Aldridge, even Shaq. The problem was that he couldn't provide any help defense against pentrating guards. Other than sliding over and taking a charge he was helpless, unable to provide any rim protection. But but throwing the ball into the post against him was a bad option, even Phil Jackson admitted as much.
