Warriors: They need rebounding, size and more playing time to develope their talented young guys.

Clippers: A defensive stopper...guys who do the little things and fulfill specific needs.

Lakers: An energy guy who can rebound and be a physical interior defender, too bad Turiaf isn't there to fulfill that role anymore.

Suns: Long athletic guys who can run the floor and finish

Kings: Another consistent scorer to take the load off Kevin Martin

Mavs: Another solid wing defender who doesn't demand touches and can hit the occasional perimeter shot.

Rockets: The pieces are there...they are really deep. If they buy into Adelmans ball movement offense to create spacing on the floor they could win it all. Health will be the biggest factor. As far as pieces they have te most wellrounded squad next to Boston and Detroit.

Grizzlies: Someone who emerges as a lockerroom leader and show the young guys the way.

New Orleans: Another solid big man to step in if injury risks like West or Chandler go down.

San Antonio: Young, athletic legs and someone who emerges as Bowens heir as a lockdown defender.

Denver: They finally have their pass first point guard. Now they need a weakside help defender who can somewhat make up for the loss of Camby.

T'Wolves: Size up front to allow big Al to move to his natural position at the 4.

Thunder: Developing their youth and getting Durant to hit the weight room and improve his shot selection. Buying into Carlesimo's defense-first philosophy.

Blazers: Getting a reliable point guard on both ends.

Jazz: Another quick footed defender who plays above the rim and helps shore up their problems against athletic teams who like to run.

Not really, we got Bynum inside rebounding and changing a bunch of shots, and Ariza brings a bunch of energy off the bench. If Turiaf was still on the team, he would not get any PT.

I think even if a lot of teams did what you are saying they still would't win the west. Im talking about your ideas for the Kings, GS, Grizz, Wolves, Clips, and Denver.

The hornets do need another big, but also, a nice backup poing guard and an uprgade of Morris peterson. Someone who can get them 15-20 a game at the 2 guard position, defend, and hit the 3. (Posey is better of the bench as a sub for the 2/3 positions)

Yao has to be on for the Rockets no matter what and either T-mac or Artest
Kobe has to be on for the Lakers and either Gasol, Bynum or Odom as well as stable defense.

CP3 has to be on for the Hornets but so does West and Peja. Chandler needs to stay out of foul trouble as well.

Duncan, Manu and Parker need to be on virtually nightly for the Spurs.

Deron, Boozer and either AK47 or Okur need to be on for the Jazz

The Lakers got a more physical better scorer, better rebounder than Ronny. But LA rolls 12 deep and he wont play unless there's an injury. Powell. Powell probably isn't a better shot blocker. What else does LA need? I guess its all the intangibles now. The desire to play better defense, mental toughness, and to just flat out make plays. Bynum's now the force inside, and his mental ability to withstand the other bigs will be measured throughout the season. Should be interesting.

i have issues with your lack of "needs" on teams clearly inferior. They need a lot more than one or two things. Adding scoring help to the kings doesn't make them good enough to win the west or win it all. (for example).

And Houston doesn't have the size to compete with the other powers. You need two bigs that are established. Yao is one, I guess Scola is another. But does that matchup with Chandler/West Pau/Bynum Perkins/Garnett Boozer/Okur... probably not. And besides the PG off the bench, its pretty weak compared to the other powers.

Great point...but some lottery teams I could spend an entire thread about their needs. I merely focussed on what type of player could prove useful to get them over the top from a losing to a winning team

Perhaps I should have specify more...good post BTW.

Odom can carry out that role. He has great hustle
