    Chances are, most of the Wizards' starting lineup will be injured by the playoffs. No?

    I still can't see Dwight dominating Duncan yet. I think Duncan can frustrate him

    Yup, just like he always does.

    While Dwight averages 29 and 18.5, 2.5 against em. With 65% shooting.

    :confused:

    Come on, Nelson is a very uncapable PG, Johnson is amazing but would get owned at SF (Stevenson should be playing SF on your team)

    And pegs has an incredibly weak bench.

    Who said Nelson would be handling the PG duties the whole time? I do have Johnson.

    And who would own Johnson? Francisco Garcia? :lol:
    No.

    Weak bench...as compared to...yours? Heh.

    Please, my bench is a lot better than yours.

    I didn't say Garcia would own Joe Johnson, but Stevenson is more able to play SF than Johnson

    If I was having trouble deciding, I'd take the possibility of injury into account. But it's an unknowable, stochastic factor that could affect your team too.

    I'd like to hear how you cover up the hole at the 4 and deal with Okafor, or do you plan on giving Gooden a lot of minutes?

    for what.. the last 2 games?? how about 5W vs 3L for Duncan?

    or the 9 & 9 Howard had the game before.
    and Howard is a career 50% to Duncan's 53%

    nice massaging of the stats Pegs.

    I don't think it's fair to say Duncan won 5 to Howard's 3 when these teams aren't anything like the Spurs or Magic.

    Or, it's called using your brain and thinking about improvement.

    This past season, Dwight has been a much, much better player than he was in seasons before. So why take in seasons previous? Why not go look at Garcia, and say that he sucks and shouldn't start because in previous seasons he hasn't done shit?

    And Duncan is getting older.

    Oh, and Okafor isn't all that great. I don't see him as much else than a role player on that team.

    Dwight is amazing don't get me wrong, but we plan to implement the Hack-A-Dwight into our defense when it gets down low to him :ghoti:

    A little different in that I have Okafor mainly for defense. I'm not relying on his offense like you are Dwights. Duncan will probably get the ball downlow moreso than Okafor.

    Duncan's not exactly great at the free-throw line, either. Especially in these past playoffs...
