More open threes, around the same touches (he also seems to get his touches without effecting the flow of the basketball too much, so i doubt that will be affected by JO) may score only 10PPG's rather than 12, lets say if Bargs scores more, JO, Moon improves, Jose scores more...but his percentages will be rock solid again, with his solid D

I agree that is possible only 10ppg considering Bargs gets better

AP will definitely get more than 10ppg this year. He's too good to average that much. And i'm not sure if Bargs will make a huge impact on AP's performance this year....i mean, why would it? AP's a starter and Bargs is a bencher.

You guys need to remember he was our second leading scorer last season, was one of our best defenders, and stayed healthy and consistent most of the season. Not too bad for a guy many of you are writing-off for next season.

I say he gets more open looks and his minutes remain about the same. 13/4.

I f the Raps had a coach who Knew how to coach he would run more double screen plays for AP-like Reggie Miller or Rip Hamilton- the few times when the team ran him up from the baseline and he caught and turned at the top of the key for the shot is his play-it just isn't run enough. Proper coaching and AP could easily give a team 15+ per night

I know what you mean, he is effective getting open for a catch and shoot. But he can't play a Rip Hamilton/Reggie Miller role.

For one, he's not the mid range shooter those two are (who is, really?) Secondly, his body won't let him. If AP was running around off screens Rip Hamilton style he would wear out much faster than Rip does. It would also hurt him on the defensive end, and he is our best perimeter defender at this point.

Agreed 100% there, it could only be a play ran 5 or 6 time a game to get him some looks and to throw something new into the gameplan. 85% of the teams plays will be high screen and roll with Jose and Bosh/JO with Ap in one corner and Moon with his hand on his hips

Another important thing AP's gotta do is stay healthy. Otherwise, we're screwed. JO should help cover for AP's slowing lateral movement on D, and his ability to set screens will help Parker as well as Kapono. But if he's going to stay healthy, he should play less than the 32 mpg he did last year- but that means Moon and Kapono might be on the floor together even more.
