Martell Webster Starter Next Season?


There has been A LOT of ups and downs (more downs) this year, from Beal starting off slowly, John missing 33 games, Seraphin extremely downgrading from his great play, and our front office commiting "bone headed" moves. Through all that Martell Webster has consistently came to play every game like it was his last... on a team that was 4-28 at one point. His game doesnt really show up on the stat sheet to much as he is averaging 10.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg, and 1.7 apg, http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nba/1129/martell-webster but its the way he plays that makes him special.

I am in favor of drafting a small forward with our first round pick regaurdless of where we're picking. Im big fans of Mohammed, and Otto Porter more than any others and my plan would be to hopefully draft one of the two (obviously only if we're in position to), Mohammed is a scorer, plain and simple, and I think he can play small forward in this league even though he is only 6 foot 6, but with an awesome 6' 11" wingspan. he may lack some defense but thats not to say he could not learn to play a little, especially at only 19 years old. I couldnt imagine passing up a teenager averaging 18.5 ppg, on 46% shooting (http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Shabazz-Muhammad-6270/). Porter on the other hand is averaging 15 ppg, 7.7 rpg, on 49.8(!!)% shooting (http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Otto-Porter-6528/). I also think Porter fits better on our team but cant imagine myself taking him before Mohammed.

Last year when we drafted Beal we all knew that he would have to step in right away and contribute in any way he could. I fell like thats not the case this year, infact I think it is the exact opposite. Not many people insisted on Beal sitting behind crawford his first couple of months but that was because we thought Beal wouldn't benifit from sitting behind him. But with Webster I think it would be smart to have him start for a few months while bringing the rook off the bench untill they are completely comfortable enough to start, and we know Webster is a contributer who can shoot, play D and plays with heart every game. So would it be a bad ideal to have him start the season for a month or so? I dont think so, infact thats how id like it
