A guy who once he gets his head straight will be a dominant player. Going to the Philadelphia 76ers should do him wonders as I believe Doug Collins will get what he wants out of him. He can score and has even become a better rebounder. But Bynum needs to be on all the time in order to get to where he should be.
Time for Roy Hibbert to make his money. After coming off an All Star season, he got a huge contract, and now has to prove he’s worth it. I have faith that Hibbert will continue to improve his game, and the best way for him to do that is through consistency. No more big games followed up by a small game, for example 13 rebounds one night and 5 rebounds the next. I would love to see him averaging 15 points a game and 10 rebounds a game. His defense has greatly improved as he’s a force in the middle when guys come into the lanes.
Finally we can get back to talking about Dwight Howard’s game and not where he’ll end up playing. He goes to the Lakers, where he should fit in well with Kobe Bryant. He won’t have to be the big star there, but I think that could catch up with him. He will make this team even better, and anything short of the NBA Finals could be considered a failure.
Coming on in the past couple of years, Marc Gasol has his name up there with his brother Pau as great NBA players. He brings a different presence to the Memphis Grizzlies by giving them an option at center position. He has some good passing skills as well as an ability to step back and make a good shot.
More known for his defense, but for me that’s good enough to put him in the top. There’s no doubt he was key to the Dallas Mavericks a couple of seasons ago, and he will hopefully continue the defensive resurgence in New York for the Knicks.
