    Default If they go .500

    Ok if they go .500, the raps lose out on a top 5 or 10 pick can they play Bargs,Davis and JV ala Lakers with Bynum,Pau and Odom ? With Bargs or Davis playing the 3 it could be possible with them playing the zone a lot and Casey being the defensive guru that he is. What do u guys think can this be done ?

    Bargs isn't nearly as athletic or versatile as Odom. Davis even less so.

    Both are way too slow to guard SFs in my opinion.

    Odom could handle the ball in the open court and the offence could be run through him in the half court, the closest forward we have to Odom's skill set is James Johnson.

    Not going to work. Bargnani is very skilled for his size but Odom has the handle of a guard. I don't think it would work.

    I added a poll.

    offensively, they'd need a 2 that was a MUCH better ball-handler than DD currently is, since you're essentially relying on the 1 & 2 to provide all of the ball-handling (not that they don't already...).

    defensively is where they'd run into real trouble...none of those 3 are likely capable of defending the SF position on a regular basis

    Bargs is playing the best basketball of his career, thriving at his natural PF position ... let's move him to SF ... NO!
