Questions for the upcoming season:
-How many mins will Jennings get a game considering the Bucks have Charlie Bell and Luke Ridnour who are much more experienced?
-Johnny Flynn..What can he do? He is a versatile point guard with great skill and the athleticism to match. Would have been extremely interesting to see what would have happened if Rubio did come across to Minnesota..Talk about competetion for the starting PG Spot.
-Can the Lakers repeat? Did they do the right thing by acquiring Artest. Personally, I think Ariza was a perfect role player for them..They didn't need another scorer like Artest..Last year Kobe, Gasol,Bynum,Fisher and Odom were the scorers and they averaged 106.9 points per game (3rd in the league). Artest might upset the Lakers offence, simply because the likes of Gasol, Bynum, Fisher, Kobe and Odom have been exposed to the triangle offense for a few years, so Ron Ron will take a while to adjust accordingly.
-Was sending Hedo to Toronto a good or bad move by the Magic? Secondly, is this Redick's year to proof the doubters wrong..Magic are a good shooting team with the likes of Morris Almond,JJ Redick, Rashard Lewis,Matt Barnes, Ryan Anderson and Pietrus.
-What can Aaron Brooks do this season? All-Star selection anybody. People have commented on his height, but he showed last season that his sheer speed, heart and shooting ability nullify that. With Brooks, Scola, Ariza and Andersen they look alright, but certainly not as deep compared with if they had T-Mac and Yao plus Artest. Im going to say it now the Rockets got screwed on that trade. It might have worked out if T-Mac and Yao were healthy and fit, but there's a worry that without Artest there too much pressure will be on the likes of Brooks, Scola and Ariza to get it going. They don't go very deep--Players like Brian Cook, Joey Dorsey, Chuck Hayes, Carl Landry, Kyle Lowry, Will Conroy and Chase Budinger are mere role players who shouldn't have too much impact. They need t-mac and Yao back asap.
