did as alpha dog with the 3rd seeded raps team. was the level of players surrounding those two players on both teams that much different
You tell me.
Ford, Parker, Bargs, Jose, Garbo, Rasho, Jones, MoPete, Dixon.
Those were the guys who played 20+ MPG for the Raps that season (06/07)
Contrast that to...
Gay, Conley, Gasol, Mayo, Arthur, Allen, Young, Battier.
Remember as well that Gay was also a bonafide 2nd option (1st option really before he went down... avging 20 pts/gm).
Their lineup >>>>>> ours when it comes to rebounding and defense especially.
