ever since acie law has been out of the rotation (and lou amundson for that matter), the team has been playing pretty good ball. after the huge losses to phoenix, i thought that we needed a trade. i was thinking maybe andris biedrins and reggie williams for javale mcgee and kirk hinrich. this would be a good deal for us because we get an upgrade on the offensive and defensive side of the ball and free throw shooting at the center position, and we get a solid back up guard. we could also get reggie back in the off season since he is an expiring.
the last few games charlie bell and jeremy lin have been able to get some playing time and fulfilled their role as role players. andris biedrins has also gotten a lot of key rebounds, the only thing that he is good for. the team has been able to overcome adversity and beat playoff teams and even took a game on the road. we are now riding a lot of momentum into the all star break. hopefully the team keeps up the confidence and can knock off the celtics and hawks at home next week, setting up a possible chance to get back to .500 at the miserable timberwolves. we are only 3 losses out of the eighth spot and only 5 losses out of the fifth spot. the west isn't as strong as it has been in year's past, although it is stronger than the east overall. with carmelo and nene possibly being shipped out, jerry sloan resigning, rudy gay injuring his shoulder, houston reeling, and new orleans and portland dealing with multiple injuries, there is a realistic chance for us to move up in the rankings especially if we beat the celtics and hawks because that will put our winning streak at five (over all play off teams, not to mention) and the timberwolves, pacers and wizards follow, so the win streak could easily reach eight and put us right in the thick of things. also, when lou amundson and acie law become healthy, i think they should stay out of the rotation if things continue going the way they are right now because if it ain't broke, don't fix it. what do y'all think?
