    Who's going to start in this one? I like the idea of meshing a new unit together against the defending champs.

    I say Stuck/Arron/Amir/Sharpe/Sheed. Amir will naturally foul out in the first 2 minutes so this is just a preliminary SL.

    We could also stick Bynum at center, but Sheed's entertainment value cannot be replaced. Actually scratch that; start Dyess. I forgot about Sheed's love affair with KG.

    Also AI will be the bench player. He will come in all by himself and play against the BOS reserves.

    Rip will be in charge of the bananas in case anyone gets injured; with Arnie's help of course. Hermann will be making sure everyone looks good for the start of the 1st and 3rd and also do touch-ups during TO's.

    Max will be in charge of screaming obscentities at KG throughout the game preferably about eating babies. And Sheed can concentrate on writing Garnett a love poem which he will deliver to him after the game along with a hug.

    I think the biggest matchup in this game is Rondo vs AI...and I'm talking when AI is on D... One thing that's pretty obvious from watching the celtics is when Rondo plays well they are almost unbeatable....the nuggets always got smashed by bos last year and the same thing happened with det this year...If AI can't keep Rondo from getting into the paint at will its going to be a long night for det (or a short night if its a blowout lol)...

    sadly you are 100% right...

    If i had to pick one guy who destroys AI more than ne1 else...Rondo would probably be the first name that comes to mind...

    I would like it if they started blowing a refs whistle at The Palace after any big play by Amir like they used to with the gong for Big Ben.

    He's not really strange at all. He's a giant guard.

    He owns guys his size because they usually are wearing cement boots and couldn't move to stay with him if their life depended on it (the classic American big man). He get's stopped by smaller guys because they are quick enough to stay in front of him and Dirk isn't strong enough to muscle anybody so he can't really take advantage of his height by doing anything other than shooting fade away jumpers, which happens to be his middle name.

    Nobody ever blocks Dirk's jump shots, so maybe there is no point in even trying. He's decent at drawing fouls by getting guys off the ground.

    The perfect defender would be someone who's feet are planted to the ground, but who is attractive enough to distract Dirk from bball. Long flowing blonde hair would be ideal. This perfect defender could get inside Dirk's personal space and further distract him with a mysterious foreign accent.

    I don't know. We'd probably have to look at Euro and S. American rosters. This player wouldn't have to be a real NBA player per se. They wouldn't have to have great lateral speed either, but the ability to move their feet quickly within a small area to give the illusion of speed would be a great asset.

    Well if it's anything like what we saw against Dirk, hopefully he gets the Kwame Brown treatment.

    I catch your drift. Big intimidating hands would be a plus too.

    If we do manage to win this, it could be a huge confidence booster.
