Short and simple: Defense Wins Championships. The team I've asembled is one of the best defensive teams in the league, and my team has a ton of experience to out match Denver

Roster Breakdown


PG: Baron Davis/RaferAlston/Brevin Knight
SG: Rip Hamilton/Allen Houston/Kelena Azubike
SF: Lamar Odom/Matt Barnes
PF: Emeka Oakfore/Josh Powlle/Darlle Arthur
C: Andris Bedrins/Patrick O'bryant

This is a great starting line up, dynamic, Great Team D and still able to Run N' Gun.

Postion Break down.

Point Guard
Baron Davis VS. Kirk Hinrch

Advantage Davis, A triple double threat everynight and a good defender, Captian kirk is over matched.

Shooting Guard Rip Hamilton VS. Ben Gordon

Advantage Rip, Both can shoot the ball very well, the advantage comes down to size and defense which Hmilton plays and Gordon dose not

Small Forward Lamar Odom VS. Melo

Advantage Melo, Melo is a great player, but Odom will play good defense and limit (not stop or shut down but limit) his production.

Power Forward Emeka Oakfore VS. K mart

Advantage Oak, Kmart hasnt been the same player we saw in New jersey for a number of reasons and Oak is a great post defender and rebounder who easily wins this match up.

Center Andris Bedrins VS. Marcus Camby
Advantage Camby (slightly) Both defensive guys, both good for ten and ten on any given night, camby has more yers under his belt and thats all.


Thats what the warriors have, and the nuggets don't.

The Denver Nuggets did not do a writeup.

All these matchups seem to have one team that flat out owns and the other so-so. I went wit GS. They would just dominate this entire series.

the reason is because 3 of the top 6 teams in the west (lakers, hornets, suns) got DQed, so the rebuilding or flat out mediocure teams made the playoffs

no write up for the regular season. playoffs are optional, which is why only some teams have them now
