Most other fans aren't giving us too much credit. I've seen a lot of "weird roster" comments.

Guy said that improvement from 27-45 wins is impossible with the additions of Tyreke/Jrue

Also tired of the word "ball Dominant"

You should also see the EG bashing thread from 2012,makes danman look like a schoolgirl.

It would be weird if Tyreke couldn't play some SF. I'm sure some aren't taking that into consideration, but the team is set up to have 3 quasi all stars on the floor at all times, 5 in crunch time, and the bench is actually pretty solid. Whether Stiemsma or Whithey can be good enough at starting center is the only serious question mark IMO.

Yeah, one of the commenters on RealGM said "No bench, no depth".

I just wanted to laugh and slap him down, but I really didn't have the energy.

Nobody is going to believe in this team until they see them play. I have faith that Demps knows a little bit more about how this roster is being built than RealGM posters. Most also don't take into account that if Davis follows the KG career path we can see a huge boost in production.

Let the Lovefest commence. NOLA will fall in love with this kid. He's CP3 before the clique got to him.

Edit: not skill level, personality wise

I like the personalities on our team and I like that the main avenue for exposure to the "cool kids" in the NBA now has Monty Williams plopped right in the middle of it.

Without knowing for sure what our identity will be, there's no way to know if this roster is weird or not.

I love the moves and have faith they will work.

There is a legitimate concern as far as having only 1 ball and a bunch of guys who want it in their hands. But I think they all understand that and will make an effort to work together

I can easily see Jrue becoming more of a distributor and less of a shooter. I think both Gordon as a starter and Tyreke as a reserve will work in that aspect. Wouldn't be surprised to see something like 14 and 9/10 from Jrue.

I was making fun of the weird roster comment.

I do not think the roster is weird.

I think it's solid.

Why there is a strange reverence to positions in a system that not apply, I'll never know.

Get your skills out there with enough defense, commence pounding.

this team without its two best players last year for periods and stretches at a time won basically 27 games while being competitive in at least 60-65...this year every position outside of the 5 has been upgraded through experience and or talent...in a bad year this team wins 37...

Jrue is better than Vasquez
Evans is better than AR or Aminu
14 Aminu is better than 13 Aminu
AD will be better in year 2
AR will be better in year 2
EG healthy and happy is better than 12 and 13 EG

the only person who might take a step back could be RYNO...and even then if he hits 40% from beyond who really cares...

we think morrow is a better roger mason than mason...i like our 2 rooks they will need time though and probably cant contribute right away other than that...Pellies lol jk STACKED...this team could finish anywhere from 5th-11th in the West IMO.
