    Teams were so bunched up in the standings though. One more win in the second round (over Venezuela or Argentina, both of whom we lost to by 6 points or less) would have been enough to put Canada...

    I'm having a hard time getting a read on whether Birch is going to stick with Miami. Minutes have been up and down through preseason, but he's got a per 36 rebounding rate of almost 13, to go along...

    A healthy Horford makes us a legit contender, at least for the eastern conference. I really like Ross, and I continue to believe that 3-and-D guys are one of the most important championship-building...

    Irving
    James
    Anthony
    Bosh
    Millsap
    Wall
    DeRozan
    Lowry

    I would guess that JV, Amir, and Ross are just about the lowest-ranked starting frontcourt in the league based on their scores here.

    Khem Birch got 17 minutes in the first preseason game for Miami. 4pts, 4rbs (3 offensive), to go with an assist, block, and steal. He's got a solid shot at making the team as the fifth big behind...

    Actually, after I think about Noel's ranking a bit more, it does sorta make sense in this way: the only reason he was ranked in the 200s last year was because he was expected to miss some but not all...

    Noel at #106 makes no sense to me. The #6 pick in one of the weakest drafts ever sits out the whole season and moves up 119 spots. The 18 months of injury rehab is a plus, but not playing meaningful...

    I'm voting for over. That actually looks a lot like my beard, though I've got a bit more length under the chin and more white hairs.

    Bargnani's at 227, a drop of 84 for him. Meaning we've got 8 players on our team that are higher-ranked than Bargnani.
