C- Emeka Okafor
SF- Gerald Wallace
SG- Ben Gordon
PG- Brevin Knight
Brevin Knight is a top 5 in assists and steals. GW leads league in steals and is the most underrated player in the NBA, not to mention his entire stat sheet is filled. Ben Gordon, unbelievably clutch in the fourth, great three point shooter as well. Emeka is just a solid big man, who will be one of the best Defenders in the league for years to come. Everyone of these players is unselfish, Everyone of them except for Gordon is considered a top defender for their position. They are all young and would mimic a Detroit like Core to grow around, No one man has to ever bare the burden on his shoulders. This is my perfect team.
Okafor has been injured since college; he's out injured now for the rest of the season. What'd he play--maybe fifteen games for the Bobcats this year? He'll be injured forever and will never
play a full season, and if Charlotte's bright they'll unload him to some team not smart enough to see beyond the potential and into the reality. I'd hate to see Minnesota get stuck with him.
Brevin Knight is possible, with Felton coming along so quickly. Only thing is, Felton's car accident earlier this season has left him with what might be permanent problems; that's why he didn't play last night. Not sure Charlotte's going to want to give Knight up if there's a chance Felton can't be relied upon longterm to step up. If Minnesota can
get him, good, go for it.
Gerald Wallace: See Emeka Okafor above. Excellent player, heart of the Bobcats--but that ankle's kept him out on and off all season. When he can
play, he rocks...but that hasn't been very often or for very long this year.
Ben Gordon's had some problems in Chicago this year. He's better off the bench than he was as a starter; he needs more time to learn before he's asked to carry this kind of load. In a couple years, maybe, but not now.
