    I don't like how this team is still so reliant on jump shooting, but we can shoot the ball much better than last year with the new editions. This team is going to look very similar to the Magic with Dwight. A dominant force inside, live or die by the 3 on the outside. With defense being the biggest priority.

    Either way, it's only preseason I know, but definitely has me even more excited about the season than I was before.
    Wayns has been the nicest surprise on this team. At this point, I see no reason why he wouldn't be the backup PG come opening night.

    I don't think there's much of a threat of Holiday or Turner losing their jobs. As Collins will look for a starting group that will gel, I can easily see Young start at the 2 and Turner at the 3, or Turner at the 2 and Wright at the 3. There's lots of versatility on this team.

    The one thing I didn't like about tonight was the big increase in turnovers in the second half. I'm sure it will be fixed, but there wasn't much wrong done by this team tonight.

    I get the Magic comparison, but I think this team has better perimeter players. I just think we have more athletes on this team than the Dwight Howard Magic did.

    I don't know what's going on there, but if he starts and averages something close to a double-double, I don't care how he wears his hair.

    Like I said, Turner better watch it because Wright is gunning for his job. To be honest, I think Turner would be better off the bench but his fragile ego and confidence issues won't allow it. I have no idea what happened to the money mid range shot he had at OSU, but he won't do much scoring wise until he finds it.

    This team has a great scoring pop off the bench. Thad Young, Nick Young, and Wright give consistent scoring, and Hawes has looked pretty good off the bench in the preseason.

    I was wondering when I looked at the box scores why he only played a little over 5 minutes. I do find it funny that the Knicks played most of the starters, and the Sixers mainly played 8 guys and still beat them by 8.

    And it wasn't really that close a game either. Sixers ran away in the 2nd and they caught up in the 3rd, but the Sixers quickly pulled away again at the beginning of the 4th. Preseason finally over though. Excited to finally watch some real games with our best player. Of course I leave for Army BCT November 6th so I'll only get to see 3 games, but those 3 games will be against Iguodala and 2 vs. the Knicks.

    I can't wait for the regular season either. Even if Bynum can't play in the first few games, I think this team is much better equipped to handle it.

    How long will the Army BCT take?
