    I noticed the "Which Player Will Improve Us The Most" Thread didnt have Kwame Brown as an option while guys like Mike Miller (No D) J. Williams (No D and a bit wild to be the PG of a potentially contending team) and even SAR (a definate uprade over Howard, but essentially the same player, i.e no versatility) were mentioned.

    Personally I think Kwame can be the answer to all of our PF problems. He is a good defender, a great rebounder, he can play Center to spell Yao, and he is a viable scoring option while T-Mac/Yao are in foul trouble or resting. I know he is a bit of a risk (not nearly as much as Artest though) but I have confidence in JVG and more importantly the maturity of our other players (T-Mac, Barry, Howard, Yao) to help him maximize his potential. He might be had for the full MLE or a S&T (Wesley and/or future pick)

    Assuming we stay away from other talented players with potential chemistry problems like Mobley (looks to shoot a bit much, even IF he did want to come back) Artest (Very Talented, but definately crazy) and D. Miles (I think he'd be very good here, but I wouldnt want 2 under-achieving highschoolers), we could add a guy like Raja Bell (should be cheap, 45%FG and 40% from downtown, and very good on D). I think we would be in a very good situation for next year.

    Imagine.......

    Sura/James
    R. Bell/Barry
    T-Mac/R. Bell
    K.Brown/Howard
    Yao/Deke

    We would still have expiring contracts of Baker, Spoon to address possible backcourt issues as the trade deadline approaches.

    Kwame is certainly a gamble, but I think to match up the best teams (S.A., Detroit, even Phoenix) you need to start TWO above average big men and a good big off the bench. Detroit has the Wallaces and McDyess, while S.A. has Duncan/Mohamed/Horry.

    *Other guys I think should be considered more include Carlos Arroyo and Jason Hart

    Thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Something different from the 'Why not....?' titles

    take a look at the front page of cf.net

    Kwame has had some problems with his team..I usually don't like us take in caseheads but Kwame is still young and with the right guidance I think he could prosper

    I'll take Kwame if we take the Rev. Sun Myung Moon as a motivational coach.
