NBA Boards Tourney Team: San Diego Squarepants

Posted on: October 18, 2008 12:21 pm
STARTERS: PG-Tony Parker: Parker is a player who can penetrate and score in the paint with the best of them. He's won a Finals MVP, and his unparalleled speed makes him a tough player to guard in general. He is also a pretty good play maker. SG-Brandon Roy: He's tough, fast, versatile, and what I like about his game is that he isn't very showy. He can definitely score, pass, dribble, play defense, grab boards, and pretty much do anything asked of him. He was picked to be a great back court combo with Parker. SF-Rudy Gay: Running the break and jamming it home nicely is one of the things he does best, but he can also shoot and grab boards. He fits into SDS's plan nicely, and most importantly he's underrated. Put him on a bigger team, and everyone will know about his flashy dunks, not just serious NBA/Grizzlies fans. PF-Kevin Garnett: "The Big Ticket" applies to him on this team as he's the marquee player here. Another versatile player on this team, he is the master of the pick-and-pop, a good shooter, and still a great post presence on both sides of the court. KG brings the veteran leadership needed to this rather young team. C-Ben Wallace: He's been on the decline for a while, but he's still a capable shot blocker and rebounder who can still play defense with the best of them. BENCH: PG-Antonio Daniels: He was a player who I picked at the end of the draft after I was tipped off that he was still available. A perfect sixth man who, like most of the team, can do a little of everything to help his team win. Part of reason I got him, however, was for the veteran leadership. SG-Jason Terry: Still a deadly scorer off the bench for this team as he can put up numbers quickly. Again he's a player who can do more than one thing, and in this case he can score, dribble, pass, and even play decent defense. SF-Francisco Garcia: Not many people like his new contract, but I think it's a steal for what he brings every night. Garcia plays with heart, but he is a rather clutch three-point shooter who has gotten the Kings many wins from his clutch shots. He can also willing defend four positions(whether he should be there or not), play three positions, and do the passing, ball-handling, and defense that comes with his versatility. He also can get along with anyone and everyone on his team. Great leader. PF-Al Horford: A young, athletic player who can run the break, grab boards, and shoot the j. He often sacrifices his body on both sides of the ball and his refined game is a good fit here. C-Brad Miller: Miller is probably the best passing center in the league. He redeemed himself last season with some newfound athleticism, but he still has his jumper and he can grab boards(see 10 rebounds a game last season). He fits my system really well. Well that pretty much sums up San Diego Squarepants. Thoughts on this? Comment!
