Well actually the GM has made some good moves, so maybe replace the head coach. Mike Dunleavey needs to do some good coaching this year to avoid getting fired.

Clippers should be good though. They could go super big, with Marcus Camby, Brian Skinner, and Chris Kaman. Baron Davis at point, Cuttino Mobley or Ricky Davis at the 2.

or they could go

Baron Davis
Ricky Davis/Cuttino Mobley
Tim Thomas
Marcus Kamby/Brian Skinner
Chris Kaman

Have people like Eric Gordon and DeAndre Jordan play minutes to get some experience and have other people like Steve Novak and Al Thornton come off the bench and you could have a very good team.

Yeah that's true. Without chemistry they won't win that much games.

Indeed... if AI can learn to really play the point... and not be so shoot first oriented... they may can do damage here... there are still enough pieces of the core Detroit team to do so... but more than likely they will be looking for some big free agents in the offseason... but I am very curious to see what Billups can do with that Denver team... they got a lot of talent on that team...
