Yes, but you're forgetting, aside from the fast breaks off of steals and missed shots, the Suns also like to semi-fast break off of made baskets by the other team.
That's where Stoudemire gets a lot of his dunks from.

LeBron (of course) and Boobie Gibson

shame everyone else on the roster except AV and Big Z suck right now

Cavs just picked up Ben Wallace. Man, I hope he can regain his Pistons form. Unlike Gooden, he doesn't need to make shots to get involved in the game. I'm not sure if this makes them a big contender.
I can see the Cavs going to 2nd or 3rd round of the playoffs every year, until they get James a legitimate 2nd scorer. They need a good running big man, like a Dirk Nowitzki type.

with the expiring contracts Cleveland has after this season.

they will have over $17m to throw at Gilbert Arenas or Elton brand

I would far rather be on the Chicago side of this trade. Ben Wallace's body is breakin down...hes just not the same quick big man that he used to be. Larry Hughes is a legit point guard. His shooting in the past years has made him a real threat.

Miltamec Soundsquinaez 02-23-2008 01:07 PM

plus, Hughes is a good defender.......
my Rockets picked up Gerald Green, but they lost Bonzi Wells.........
Here's a question for some of you NBA fans,
Remember when Steve Francis used to be good? Is there some kind of injury I don't know about? because Rafter Alston is ahead of him on the depth chart.
Francis used to be a perennial All-Star.

Do you also ever think about how the Knicks can be so bad with so many talented players who just dont ever shine. Minus Crawford who is an up and coming.

And Hughes..is a GREAT defender.

Shaq's the inbounder...And he helps them get more fast breaks off of missed shots.

Here are some playoff picks.

I like either the Celtics or the Pistons to win it all, because they both might sweep their first 2 series, and the West is so stacked, that I think all the teams will be worn out by the time they reach the Conference Finals.
I mean Dallas is a #7 seed, Dallas.
They have Dirk Nowitzki, Josh Howard, and Jason Kidd
I'm really proud of Houston, they made a lot of progress this year, but without Yao, this just isn't their year. It could be anyone from the West. I'll take whoever wins that San Antonio/Phoenix Suns series.
Utah-still too young, New Orleans-still too young, Denver-too young/old, Lakers-no Bynum, no ring, Dallas-had their shot 2 years ago, Orlando-still too young, Washington-can't believe they made in, great perimeter play, need better bigs, Cleveland-M.J. knows you can't do it all alone, Philadelphia-like the coach, not their year, Toronto-still too young, Atlanta-f*cking East, they've got some talent, but it's not happening.

I'll take the Celtics, look for some great play by old time pointguards:
Derek Fisher
Sam Cassell-he might be their difference maker
Mike Bibby
