bad example, really .... wallace is one of the most injury prone players in the league.

Wallace would have been a great fit if it wasnt for his high flying style. I'll take the chance with JO sitting out because he didnt want to risk further injury due to Indy sucking than Gerald continuing his style of play(which isnt a bad thing, but as it turns out isnt a good thing) and getting injured for a lot of the year. One chronic injury can go away with rest and conditioning, Geralds injuries cant because he cant really change his style of play because if he does he'll be just average.

Three years ago they were the King, and Prince of the paint in the East. Now, the Prince is King, and the King, well, lets just say he's ready to show why he was King again.

(I fucking hope)
u sayin Bosh is the king? i dont know man, maybe, but i dont like him getting pushed around by guys like howard and maxiel

i wouldn't put much on him sitting. i think the main point is that wallace can't adapt as a basketball player, while o'neal can adjust his game so his injury won't fully effect his game. you take the flying out of wallace and you've got a d-league hanging with the big boys, o'neal would still be well above half the leagues starting centers if he lost his athleticism.

We didn't even play Baston,Brezec, or Garbajosa-although he was good for that one season.
TJ is getting replaced by Ukic as a 2nd string PG and JO is an upgrade on Rasho.
We're just losing a couple of benchwarmers. Last year Jose could've been an all-star, now there's nothing stopping ala TJ Ford.

Exactly - McDyess would be a good example of that.
