If you want to get into the playoffs and not have to make payoffs then this should be your starting lineup.


:D Trust Me :D

That lineup might work for stretches against certain matchups, but not for whole games.

1. Shareef's perimeter D sucks
2. Shareef isn't fast enough to keep up with the SFs
3. Theo can't rebound as well as Shareef

that looks okay. Maybe Reef cant play perimeter defense, but he can post up smaller small forwards. Plus toward the end of the season last year Reef was getting worn down. He cant match up physically with aa player like Jermaine O'Neal.:no:

What are you talking about? Jerm only averaged 17ppg against Atlanta this past season (4 games), and Shareef was guarding him.

No the first couple of Games Nazr was guarding him. But after Indy aquired Brad Miller Shareef was guarding him. But you forget to mention that Reef only had 9 points in the second tolast game they played against eachother.

Point is? O'Neal is more finesse than Reef at this point in his career, Reef has more post moves and is a better overall rebounder IMO.

Also Reef dropped 50 on Ben Wallace. :D (Had to bring that up)
