You said 6'8" in shoes. I forgot Chris Bosh he's over 6'10" barefoot.
Anyway I have been watching a bout 6 different halves yesterday and basically I have come up with their starters would be nice role players.
Isaiah Thomas can get to the rack and does a nice job offensively for the Kings he's just so small. He just can stop anyone. First possession of the game vs Cleveland Irving posted him up. But he is a good passer, shooter and slasher.
Jimmer can shoot and he does a decent job getting to the rack but same thing he can't stop anyone.
Aaron Brooks (from Seattle) Had a really nice year in Houston but Isaiah is starting over him and again can't stop anyone.
John Salmons decent players but he's the kind of guy you always think you can get an upgrade.
Jason Thompson blue collar guy decent contract keep him.
Thomas Robinson he's not horrible, but at this point I wouldn't want him to start. Sure have him come off the bench. But is that really what you want your 5th pick over all in the draft doing? I'd say if you are bad enough to get the 5th pick overall you are looking for a starter not a role player.
Those are the 6th guys I'd be willing to keep but to me they are all bench players. And really there is no need for all 3 of Isaiah, Brooks and Jimmer.
As far as Seattle based guys coming to play for Seattle.
I think Collison will come back for a year or two once his OKC contract is up. Funny thing though he has been in OKC longer than he was in Seattle. I still think he'd come back.
I like Jamal but he has signed a pretty long deal in LA. T Ross is on a rookie deal. Maybe Pondexter. Wroten is on a rookie deal
Spencer Hawes is ok, I'd like to see Klay Thompson but that ain't going to happen.
No thanks on Marvin Williams, Jason Terry, Brian Scalabrine, Adam Morrison, Brandon Roy, Luke Ridnour, Robert Sacre, Austin Daye, Stuckey, Brockman, Pargo, Turiaf, Webster.
But one thing I learn from the Luke Ridnour experiment. Is that on draft night it's really nice to get a local kid and it puts butts in the seats for about 10 games but putting a winner on the floor does a much better job of filling up the stands than having a local boy on the floor.
