I realize that the season will start with Foyle at center and Murphy at the 4. If I had my choice I'd start Murphy at the 5. I honestly believe Ike will be ready to play right away. The guys the most polished draft pick the Warriors have had since Webber. As far as a post up player Ike's already our best. Back to center. As I look at all of the teams in the western conference, a front line of Murphy and Ike would be no worse off than Foyle and Murphy. What I like is the fact that Murph and Ike can hurt the opposing teams at the offensive end. With foyle in there, it takes away from our offense. Let's look at a few of the matchups foyle/Murphy vs. Murphy/Diogu: Denver; Camby/ K-Mart this is tough because of quickness Dallas; Damp/Nowitzki either way it's about the same Houston; Yao/Swift Murphy on Yao, Diogu on Swift Clips; Kaman/Brand Murph on Kaman, Diogu on Brand Lakers; Mihm/Brown this ones a joke, we'll dominate Memphis; Wright/Gasol Maybe Foyle owuld be good here, shotblocking Min; Kandi/K.G. Tough matchup against KG, Kandi sucks N.O.; Magloire/PJ Brown Foyle or Ike on Mags, Murphy can handle Brown Suns; Grant/Amare No-one can handle Amare, Grant please Spurs; Nazri/ Duncan Ike on Duncan, Murphy on Nazri Kings; Miller/Shariff Murphy on Brad, Ike on Shariff Seattle; ?/Collison Collison's tougher than he looks, who's their center? Utah; Okur/Boozer Murphy on Okur, Ike on Boozer Port; Pryz/Randolph Murphy on Pryz, Ike on Randolph Now tell me why Murphy wouldn't be at least as good as Foyle in the west?
