Re: A couple of comments about the Mavs game
Mihm is looking more like a project. Hunter is 6'6" playing against
redwoods and now realizes it. Trying to make something out of Mihm and
Hunter is illusionary.
Let em all play now and let's secure the # 9 pick.
Most improved Celt by far is Blount. He doesn't get much attention on this
list. Wonder what his stats would be on a good team? Certainly looks like
the Celtic starter next season.

beat a playoff team in this run (Denver may not be one soon) with Walter in
the core lineup. We just got murdered on the boards by a weak rebounding
team in Dallas. I was willing to go to the playoffs and give it a shot with
what we got. However, we have already failed test 1 (Mavs). Test two (Spurs)
and Test three (Nets) are forthcoming. But I already think the results are
in. We may still make it in but we won't have a dream of a chance of winning
a playoff game with Walter at the power forward spot. I only hope would be
if Raef comes back in time. So I again put out a call for playing Mihm or
Hunter instead of Walter. If we win playing one of those at the power
forward spot, it would obviously be great. But if we lose, at least we went
for it in a conventional way. Why try and go make the playoffs with a
gimmick like Walter at power forward, knowing we will get killed on the
boards and lose in the p!

they could grow and step up to the challenge. Just doesn't make sense to

> We need to scout out Brent Barry. I have been out of town since Barry has
come back so I haven't had a chance. I tried tonight during timeouts to
check him out. I have been hearing that the Sonics have been attibuting
their improved play to his return. What I saw tonight was that Flip would
bring up the ball but Barry would direct the offense, kind of like a coach
on the floor. He made a sick ally-oop pass to Rashard for a dunk. I am just
trying to figure how he would fit in with the Cs. Maybe what Danny is
thinking is that he would really complement Banks well. BB could direct the
offense and make the creative passes while Banks would bring up the ball,
play the D against the other 1s and would do the penetration. Maybe he is
better fit than I earlier gave him credit for. However, he isn't going to be
our point guard. Maybe if you sign BB, you can trade Ricky D for some help
in other areas....
