rashard lewis plays the 4, so he won't post our wings anytime soon ...
I think these articles are rubbish, because they are unrealistical. Does this guy believes that parker, moon, kapono and magette would make a more fearsome defending combo? Really? Or maybe he would have liked Bryan to trade TJ for Kobe or something.

And the same thing with playes like Outlaw - we're talking about trading half the team for a guy who was a decent 6th man on a mediocre team, shoots a poor percentage and is probably unable to defend the 2 better than Parker. Not too mention he's a larger, better shooting version of Jamario.

O'Neal has the chance to make us take a huge step forward, nobody else would have made any difference. Jose + Parker + Outlaw/Magette + Bosh + Rasho would be a worse team than our current roster, and we'd have the same issues with the bench, unless sombody considers Baston the cornestone of the second unit.
