I don't want to give Ariza 8M a year for 4 years. I don't want to do it. I give him the mvp for the lakers championship guarding Paul Pierce but his offense was disgusting until this year. Very ugly player to watch offensively until this year. He has the height but can not drive. He poses no driving threat which makes the D on the opposing team collapse on Wall and Beal.
We were good with Gil because Butler could drive and shoot. Jamison would shoot and that would leave someone 1 on 1 with Arenas. 1 on 1 I think Wall is a top 5 pg today in the nba and #1 in the east. Martell Webster can't drive to save his life either. It's very frustrating to see 6'7, 6'8 guys not be able to take one or two dribbles and get to the free throw line or lay it up or dunk it.
I want a Caron butler type on this team. I hope everyone reading this wants a Butler on this team.
In that case we need to move him for either Jeff Green, Melo or Rudy Gay.
It's funny all 3 Maryland guys and we do this knowing KD wants to come home in a couple of years. best players in the NBA from Maryland gotta love it. What I don't love is how none of them went to Maryland or played on the wiz yet.
Green, Melo and Gay can all shoot and DRIVE. The 3 headed monster would be sssiiiccckkk. Two smart bigs in Nene and Gortat and a mister hustle in Booker would be nice. Grab another d hustle guy and or backup guard from either Boston, Ny or Sac to add to the mix.
