    7'1, runs like a deer, shoots with range, good hands, terrible defensive IQ last season. Sounds like a Toronto Raptor franchise player? (that's a joke) Joking aside, how much do you think he'll improve this season and will he accept a traditional center role or morph into a PF?  I have no problem with his 3pt shot as a weapon and love his free throw stroke. What do you guys think? As usual I'm optimistic about him.

    I think playing next to TRob and against Rolo in practice should do the trick

    Him with T Rob would be good. Him with Rolo too. We could have Meyers at the 4 and Rolo at the 5. Meyers certainly has the speed and mobility to match up with PFs atleast offensively. I think defence will improve. At best I would say Meyers will be a competent shot blocker and a decent defender. I think It will take a couple years though.

    I am a fan of Raymond Felton. Haha, seriously though I'm a fan of Batum's Lobs and JJ's Slams.

    If Meyers could become a good passer in the post, he could really then be used in a lineup which includes Lopez. But as we've pointed out, his defence will need to improve if thats the case. I like Leonard. He brings an energy that we sorely lacked a few seasons back when Camby and Pryzbilla were the main men upfront. Given they were far better defensively but couldn't hold a candle to Meyers offensive arsenal. 

    I think if Leonard could be a big body down low and express his physicality he could be a gem. He won't need to worry about foul trouble because we're much deeper at the 4 & 5 this season. I'd like him to make those 3s which we saw him take during the SL but I'd much rather have him doing a decent job defensively and making it tough for whoever his matchup is. 

    Leonard plus TRob is an excellent athletic combo and Lopez plus Leonard is something of a dream frontline if you want size upfront. I think Leonard is in for a much improved season and a spot in the playoffs.

    I am a fan of shouting Batuuuuuum-Shaka-Laka whenever Nic hits a 3!!!!!

    I think he thought too much last year. And it didnt look like he was having fun. He could stand to take a page out of T-Robs book and just go after boards.
    I am a fan of our new roster playing with and for eachother.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
