As far as Shelvin is considered, we're on opposite ends of the spectrum. He's terrible and shouldn't be on the roster IMO. I'm holding out hope that the Rockets cut Livingston and we claim him off waivers.
Shelvin Mack wasn't terrible last year -- which is not to say he was very good either. But, like Singleton, he gets another year. Last year it was tough being a rookie w/o a Summer working w/ the team and w/o training camp. He was as good as A.J. Price, maybe better. Still... I'm with you that I'd rather have Livingston.
But I take Childress over Webster in a NY minute. I don't believe in abstractions like "shooting" as in "we need to add shooting." You don't add the abstraction, you add the whole player. And you get all the things he does, good and bad.
Overall, Josh Childress is a much better NBA player than Martell Webster, and if you have him you are that much better a team than if you have Webster.
It is not possible to formulate a counter-argument. Is so!
