08-23-2009, 06:39 AM
Every offseason some of us on PSD join a mock offseason and make teams through a mock free agency period and trades among other GM's. Below are two teams battling in the playoffs, please help us by giving us your vote on who you think the better team is.

Orlando Magic Lineup:

PG: Rafer Alston/Will Bynum/Javaris Crittenton
SG: Kevin Martin/Juan Dixon/Quentin Richardson
SF: Caron Butler/Micheal Beasley
PF: Udonis Haslem/Joe Smith/Steve Novak
C: Dwight Howard/Darko Milicic

Atlanta Hawks Lineup:

pg - Chris Duhon - Marcus Banks - Mardy Collins
sg - OJ Mayo - Francisco Garcia - Aaron Afflalo
sf - Shawn Marion - Bobby Simmons - Jamario Moon
pf - Al Harrington - Tyrus Thomas - Hilton Armstrong
c - Jermaine O'Neal - Zaza Pachulia - Soloman Jones

Orlando Magic did not send in a writeup.

Atlanta Hawks Writeup:

congrats on the magic making it here and good luck.

duhon vs. alston - my plan for duhon here is for him to get a few 22assists games like he did with the knicks this past season. other then that i see alston getting himself tossed due to resorting back to his AND1 days and doing some illegal moves. or he will just smack duhon upside his head like he did to eddie house hahaha.

mayo vs. martin - sure martin can score alot but think of this mayo was a rookie this past year and is close to scoring as much as k-mart and has more rebounds and more assists per game last year. hes only 21 guys he can only get better.

marion vs. butler - marion will be all over butlers @$$ with his great D. enough said here.

harrington vs. haslem - harrington had doudle the points, steal, and assists per game then haslem. harrington clearly has the advantage over haslem.
also harrington is taller and a bit heavier then haslem witch allows him not to be pushed around by haslem.

o'neal vs. howard - so obviously howard is the best here in this match up but our plan here is to double team him hell triple team him if we have to and get him in foul trouble early on in the game.

Lmao at the hawks write up
Magic in 4

Dwight would have his way with Jermaine O'Neal and Kevin Martin and Caron Butler would get a lot of open looks playing with Dwight. Kevin Martin would especially benefit from playing with Dwight.

:laugh: @ the Hawks write-up. I almost voted for you because of that. But Magic in 5 or 6.

Magic for sure, way too much firepower to be stopped by the Hawks.

Magic in 5. Great job by both GMs!

08-23-2009, 01:32 PM
This is actually closer than it looks. The Hawks have some solid defenders on their team and pretty decent depth as well.

The Magic appear to be the more functional team and are the superior team at both ends, so I think they would take it. But great job to both GMs.

Magic in 5.

Durant is hype

Who is the GM for the Magic?

They should have gotten Calderon. He is one of the best fundamental shooters and would do wonders with Howard in the post.

Martin and Butler are great scorers, plus Butler gives some D... Dwight in the post... Hard worker in Haslem and Alston to dish some assists... also better bench...

Magic wins this...

Atlanta. I dont like that Orlando team at all.

08-23-2009, 04:15 PM
lanes will be clogged for Dwight now he has Haslem next to him and not Lewis spreading the floor, Hawks can afford to double/triple team him alot with Haslem being a non factor
