Yes, it'd be nice to have a bit of an upgrade at the 3, but the way I figure it, between Tony Parker and Redd, I have two guys who can penetrate to the basket from the perimeter.  And since I have a post presence and a rebounding machine in Camby (who will hold my defense together), I really just needed sharpshooters at the 3.  So that's why I chose Wally and Kapono.

Wally's a very good shooter who's still capable of averaging starters' minutes and Kapono is the best three point shooter in the game.  I could even have Anthony Parker play at the 3 from time to time to help on defense.  So I'm not really worried about having a ton of points or rebounds at that position since the opposition is going to have to worry about my Big Three (Tony Parker, Redd and Jefferson) - which will open up guys like Wally and Kapono on the wings.

At least that's how I've built my system.  But that's just how I roll.

I wouldn't.  48.3% from downtown is a lot better than 37.5% from downtown.

C-Yao Ming
PF-David West
SF-likely Rudy Gay
SG-Vince Carter
PG-Earl Watson

Bench:
Lamar Odom
Antonio McDyess
Erick Dampier
Anthony Johnson
DeShawn Stevenson

So point guard help is obviously needed.

He doesn't do those things significantly better than Kapono does.  Also, Kapono is better for my system because all I want him to do is come off the bench to jack up threes.  I don't need him to do anything else considering who else I have on my roster.

I'm really liking my depth chart right now.

Tony Parker/Rafer Alston
Michael Redd/Anthony Parker
Wally Szczerbiak/Jason Kapono
Al Jefferson/Chris Wilcox/Kurt Thomas
Marcus Camby/Al Jefferson/Chris Wilcox


I like the defense-offense combo that Al Jeff and Camby give you on the inside, I was always a fan of that type of approach in games like this. Nice backcourt as well, although I think any team with a slashing/scoring wing player would eat you up. You've got to do something about that perimeter defense.

Redd and Wally world on the perimeter might free up space for Al Jeff inside, but those two together on the floor is a problem, the same goes for Redd and Kapono.  Too many jump shooters, no mid range game to speak of at all, and no guard other than TP that can get the ball to the basket and draw fouls.  You'll have the least FT attempts of any team in the league and no one has to worry about doubling Redd or Wally, or even hardly cover Camby, which will make Parker and Jefferson struggle.  You need a big time slashing guard, even a combo guy like a Monta Ellis or Louis Williams as a back up at the two would help.

Oh really?  Looks like someone needs to do their homework.  Both Redd and Jefferson had a lot more free throw attempts last season than T. Parker.  And believe it or not, Wally had a lot of free throw attempts last season, too.  Good jump shooters tend to be fouled a lot.  And at least with Redd, he can score from anywhere on the floor; he does drive, you know - he's just known more for his perimeter shooting.

Also, all of my guards average around 1 spg.  That's certainly nothing stellar, but none of them are poor defenders.  And as for Big Al, he averages 1.5 bpg.  So between him and Camby, that's theoretically about 5 bpg.  I'd say that's a pretty good defensive interior - especially considering their rebounding abilities.
