Default Another beauty from Bill Simmons

I love Bill Simmons, even when he's rippin' my team. This is sure to raise a few hackles, but it really is the central question of the Raps future.

Q: I forget which GM it was, but when Sherm Douglas was running the show in Boston, this GM said of the Little General, "He's just good enough to get you into the playoffs, and just bad enough to get you knocked out." Who are the Sherms of today's NBA?
-- Tim, Asheville, N.C.

SG: Nice question. I'll give you a starting lineup and a sixth man ...

PG: Jose Calderon
SG: Anthony Parker
SF: Carlos Delfino
PF: Andrea Bargnani
C: Chris Bosh
6th: Jason Kapono

SG: By the way, I was just kidding with the answer to the previous question -- I wanted to get the Toronto fans all riled up. They're so easy. Here's my real answer to the Sherm Douglas question:

PG: Andre Miller
SG: Vince Carter
SF: Corey Maggette
PF: Antawn Jamison
C: Brad Miller
6th: Al Harrington
While we're here, let's unveil another one of my favorite teams: The Shareef Abdur-Rahim "Great Stats/Bad Team" All-Stars, dedicated to guys who can only reach their true potential statistically on a lousy team:

PG: Sebastian Telfair/Beno Udrih
SG: Jamal Crawford
SF: Gerald Wallace
PF: Drew Gooden
C: Emeka Okafor
6th: Al Harrington
