I just realized I match up ridiculously well against the Bulls now.
Rose-guarded by Lebron
Curry-guarded by Hinrich
Marion-guarded by Matthews
I like that
Ok I hate on the Magic trades often. So you know I mean this when I say it. Fantastic deal for Magic who may have my vote for best in the East now.
Harden is so overhyped right now so in one sense couldn't have hurt to keep him in the NBA forum. However they weren't winning **** with ridnour starting and Kirk is a clear upgrade and arguably the best point to play along side LeBron save Jason Kidd.
And IMO Matthews is = to or > than Harden. They went from having 2 starters in their 5 to a complete well balanced team. With unless I missed something, Ridnour, McGrady, still on the bench which is solid.
Thank you Ebbs. And yes, I still have Ridnour/McGrady/Evans/Dunleavey on the bench.
I wouldn't want LeBron killing himself to keep up with Rose at the defensive end of the floor on a team where he has to carry a much bigger scoring load than he did for Miami in the ECF. Garnett isn't going to catch fire and score 24 points a game on 60 percent shooting for 5 games like Bosh did. I would actually rather have Hinrich guarding Rose. Kirk did a really solid job against him earlier in the season.
EIther way I think Magic can matchup with anyone. Nets are probably the toughest matchup for them.
