Conversely, the GSW big-man rotation looks pathetic.
LA Clippers:
PG: Stephen Curry / Deron Williams / Penny Hardaway
SG: Michael Redd / Doug Christie / Leandro Barbosa
SF: Grant Hill / Hedo Turkoglu
PF: Elton Brand / Lamar Odom / Josh Smith
C: Joakim Noah / Andrew Bynum / David Lee

Same old same old for Dwight. All positives heading into the season felling the best he has in years, great preparation, yada, yda, yda...

He'll be sidleined for six weeks or so with a hangnail or something trivial by mid-November at the latest, mark my words (although I did pick him up for $1- as my 16th pick in one fantasy auction draft  :laugh: ).

Oh for sure, I was pretty miffed that we didn't give him a look. I think he's quite valuable to any team looking for a defensive anchor and rebounding machine who doesn't distort your offense.

Yeah, I got a chuckle hearing that unbearable Marc Jackson say "Dwight has been saying all the right things"

Hear that literally every year

Looks like he lost 15-20 lbs to me. Maybe went off the roids, maybe lost weight to preserve his health (he had spinal problems if I remember correctly).

On a side note, our man Avery Bradley had a stat line of 18-0-0-0-0. Pretty weird.

Haven't seen a stat line like that since Alan Houston...

Lakers-Sixers Finals would be battle of the giants.  Might happen. Hope not.

This.

Again I am not saying he is going to have a dominant year again, but he looks very visibly lean and athletic. If we can't comment on players that are in visibly better shape during the preseason what can comment on? Is he going to play a week from now and magically be fat cause it is a regular season game?

Haha.  Yep.  But it's better than when people say he's a changed and more mature man this year based on Dwight saying those things.
