The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:
"This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation thatís critical. Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē
Amare's knees have much more wear and tear and damage than an average player of his age.
Felton is always out of shape and probably will be again when he returns.
You don't want to start a 40 yr old at the 1 or the 2. Just about every starting PG is going to run circles around Kidd as long as he's in the lineup.
You don't need a young speedster at PF or C. But having a 40 year old with knees like Kidd's is inviting disaster.
But tell yourself whatever you want.
Your 2nd and 3rd units are much older than the 2nd and 3rd units of any other team in the league.
In before: "you're a troll and hater."
