Can you blame him though?

John Hollinger (ESPN): (3:48 PM ET ) Raps are about what I expected -- Bosh is unbelievable, O'Neal is strong on D and shaky on O, Calderon is rock-steady, and the wings don't do jack. They'll be in the top six in the East, maybe as high as third if everything breaks right but more likely fifth or sixth."

What is wrong about his answer. I don't see anything false in what he said.

I know AP did good but what about the other wings. JK had one good game and that's it. So pretty much they do jack. Hopefully that changes. Right now out of the 3 or 4 wing players we have AP is the only one that is consistent. No one else is and that's why he said that

Bullshit.

Firstly, the obvious: Parker is awesome. Hell, he looks better than last season.

Secondly. Moon. I disagree when people say he sucks or what have you. IMO, he has improved over last season. And a lot of people where very high on him then. Now before i get blasted, i will agree that he doesn't drive enough. That's true. But he has clearly worked on his outside shot in the offseason. And that work is paying off. He actually IS a THREAT from the outside now. He's shooting 59% from the field and 62% from beyond the arc. That's pretty good. Now of course he has to get to the line more (as do all of our guys), but for now defenders are leaving him open and he's taking advantage.

Also Kapono has been putting up equally impressive numbers. Save one game, he has been clutch for the other two. His %'s are through the roof.

Anyways, neither of them are all-stars, but they've had a great start. They're doing more than jack, IMO.

our wings have stepped up HUGE! Check parker's place in steals per game and Kapono has kept teams from making their comebacks. Poor assessment!

I still say that BC is making a trade by the deadline to get help at the 3 spot.This isn't the team that we'll be going into the playoffs with.

I'll tell you what's wrong with that statement, the same Hollinger in his chats about 2 months ago said that our wing situation is just fine ... Now he's doing an 180, even though if anything, so far the wings have played better than expected.

and we'll only make a trade if we prove to be *really* good, like in contender good, or if we end up with a bargain (and I suspect it's more of the later).
