But Raps as a group have QUITE a way to go before they can claim to be the Spurs, no?
Look, I am not comparing Moon to Bowen defensively, but Jamario has all the tools to become a Bowen-like player for the Raps. He is far more athletic and has a better shot already, just needs to work on his already above-average defence.
I'd still start Kapono. Considering that both Bosh
and O'Neal can operate one-on-one from either high or low post, that's all the "creativity" you'd really need in a half-court. Those two on the blocks, Jose, Parker and Kapono at the corners of a triangle waiting and set to shoot an open three-pointer - even Smitch should be able to run this offence.
