    I would have to agree with you. I'd add Delfino and Maxiel to that list though.

    Seems that Johnson could really use the d-league minutes.

    a) I'm looking for indications that Fllp learned what to me is the major lesson of last year: there are more than 6.75 players on an NBA roster.

    b) I'm looking for indications that the players learned what to me is the major lesson of last year: we aren't talented or athletic enough top to bottom to win without trying and without executing, on both ends of the court.

    We heard Flip & Joe say they're high on Brahma and he should get some more PT... but where is he gonna get any PT behing Sheed & Dice?

    I think we're gonna add one more big before the season.

    Curious to see if playing the bench more results in more wins or going further into the playoffs.

    1) The new players (Naz and Flip) and rotational sets.

    2) Who is playing nearer the paint.

    Flip coming up w ith a rotation, any rotation that involves more than 6 guys playing 98% of the minutes.

    My biggest question is who is going to be the backup point? Hunter/Blaylock? I don't know about that. This is where we may see some walkons. Perhaps find a Damon Jones type who gets cut as in 02.

    The team has stated that Flip Murray is the backup point guard.

    No, I'm not kidding, and yes it is idiotic.

    I'm thinking this is just a year to see what we have in the unknown players, to see who's got what trade value, and to stay flexible for a major rebuild. It makes sense to keep our options open given the 2 picks in the draft, and it also makes sense to sign guys like Flip Murray to cheap deals. So even though we really needed a PG, what we got instead was a tradeable guy at good value for the money.

    At least, that's what I'm hoping, as the alternative is that Joe's gone Sund on us.

    Either Saunders or Dumars said it somewhere (don't keep articles, sorry).

    Those depth charts are done by fans, writers, etc. They aren't official in any way shape or form and they only list guys at one position (when many players will play 2).

    Has he played the point before?

    We should have just kept Arroyo. For what they are going to spend for all these hacks that will have to be cut and bought out it would have been cheaper.
