PG - Chris Paul:

The best point guard in the leauge; he can do it all. He can pass, he can shoot, he can defend, and he can lead his team. He makes whatever team he is on better, and is always a big time threat on both sides of the ball. He showed that is no one of the best playres in the league, and he can take any team deep into the playoffs.

Derek Fisher: A perfect back up for Paul. He has tons of veteran experience especially in the playoffs and getting to many NBA Finals with the Lakers. He has great leadership, good defense, and is a clutch player when it matters. He can mentor Paul, and give my team lots of leadership and clutch play to get me to the Finals and possibly even the championship.

SG - Manu Ginobili:

A top 5 shooting guard, no question. You can love him or hate him, but in the end you can't deny how great he is. He can drive the lane and make unbelieveable lay ups, and he can hit the outside shot. He isn't a great defender, but he isn't a bad one. He does flop a lot, but hey, he gets away with it and gets a lot of calls his way. If you think Bowen is a good defender with all his dirty play, then you have admit Ginobli can play some good D to. He is just great player that contributes a lot to championship team. He has won 3 rings with the Spurs, a gold medal in the 2004 Olympics with Argentina, and many international titles as well. Combined with Chris Paul, he makes my backcourt the best.

Bruce Bowen: Bowen is a great guy to have, especially off the bench. He has good perimeter defense and can get a little rough if need be. You might not like him (I don't), but he gets the job done when you ask him to. He can come off the bench and provide great defense when I need it.

SF- John Salmons:

He is a great role player off the bench for me. He isn't great at any specific thing, but he is solid all around. He is a good slasher on offense as well as being able to hit the outside shot from time to time. He is also a good passer as well. He can play some good defense. The Kings had him guard the opposing teams best players at times even with they still had Ron Artest. He can come off the bench and play good amount of minutes for me.

Jamario Moon: Moon is the perfect back up player off the bench for my team. Like Marion, he has tons of athleticism and can be huge for my team on the fast break. He is also a good defender, and uses his great athleticism to get lots of blocked shots and rebounds. He provides lots of energy off the bench for us on offense and defense.

PF - Yao Ming:

Yao? At power forward? His height causes so much mismatches when he plays center, imaging how much more he can causes as a power forward. He his that unstoppable hook shot, the short jumper, and many other post scoring moves (not to mention he is a great free throw shooter). He is so difficult to cover for anyone, and with Paul giving him the rock, it should make it even harder on the opponents. He can play either post position for us, and play great at either one.

Paul Millsap: This is another one of my energy players off the bench. Millsap is very atheltic for a big man. He can crash the boards and gets lots of rebounds on defense and even offense as well. He is a very good defender and uses his big body to keep the post player from getting too deep on the block and getting easy shots. He is coming off the bench for the Jazz, but that's only because Boozer is there. He could be a starter for a lot of teams. He is pefect off the bench for me because he provides lots of energy and good defense as well as some offense.

C - Chris Kaman:

Kaman showed last year why has been the most underrated big man. He is very good rebounder and defender. He also can score well in the paint as well. He is a big guy that just works hard and contributes a lot to his team. He can hold his own against all the other great centers in the league, and knows how to help his team. Good offense, and great defense makes him a perfect player for my team.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas:

He is a great player to have. He can rebound, play solid defense, and give you some good post scoring as well. Big Z is a perfect big man to come off the bench for me. He can come in and give us that good defense, good rebounding (especially offensive rebounding/ tip backs), and post scoring with his turn around shot and tip backs.

Good luck to everyone with the tourney, and don't forget to keep track of the schedule so you know when to turn your gameplans in.

Big B, I have three things to say 1. Your team's looking pretty good, and I like that back court of yours a lot. 2. I have my gameplan ready to go against DJTANKELITE, when do you want it? 3. Can you help format my blog post? It looks like absolute crap.

I'm sure you excuse will be that Nash made him look good right?

He!! no. Im with you on Nash, he's the anti-christ. I hate him and Dirk the most out of anybody in the NBA. (By the way i think Dirk is the second part of the anti-christ along with Nash.) No I think Amare made Marion look bettter but like I said I think that Marion gets a little too much credit and I know that Marion had good stats when Amare was hurt but I think he was helped by the system. But yeah Salmons or Biedrins would work if you come across that situation.

Good luck this year. (Although with that backcourt you might not need luck to win games.)

I think Marion is over rated but he is still decent

I don't understand why people can think Marion is overrated? I'm sure you excuse will be that Nash made him look good right? Well I've done the math before and found numbers that prove Marion actually made Nash better. Marion had great numbers before Nash, and but Nash didn't have great numbers until he joined Marion. Remind me again how that makes sense?

He is a top 5 defender in the league, a great rebounder (especially on offense), is one of the best, if not the best, on the fast break, and can hit the 3pt shot (no matter how ugly it is).

so I guess its really Scola Im consirned about. If someone has a good power forward and a good small forward Marion can only guard one of them and I think that Scola would have some trouble.

That's a very legiitime concern, but here is the thing: I can start Marion at power forward to guard their power forward. Then, I can start Salmons (who is a very good defender himself). Or, I can have start Biedrins, have Kaman cover the good PF, and Marion cover the good SF. So you see, I've got it all planned out.

I really like your backcourt but I am not sure about your frontcourt. Kaman is a beast he will be fine but your forwards Im not so sure. I think Marion is over rated but he is still decent so I guess its really Scola Im consirned about. If someone has a good power forward and a good small forward Marion can only guard one of them and I think that Scola would have some trouble. But thats just my opinion.

Man, you have no idea how hard it was formatting this. It took me forever to get it right! This makes re-formatting Nuggets' gameplans seem like a walk in the park.
