In the east, that's not horrible. Two really tough match-ups (Prince and Villanueva) and an undersized C. Hamilton leads the bench bunch, with Maxiell, Bynum, rookie Daye, and the immortal Kwame Brown as a second unit. If they can find a solid C other than Wallace, they have a shot to be that second-tier Eastern Conference, 3 or 4 seed or better.
Not too sure that I agree. First, they have no real point on a team w/ guys who need PG's to get them open shots (Gordon/Prince/Hamilton). CV is overrated and McDyess is old and shouldn't play as many minutes as they need him.
