Finally at the 5, a defensive anchor in Mek, to help balance out the scoring from 2-4 spots.

    Bench provides plenty of scoring options and also has some defenders in Taj, Bledsoe, and Landry Fields

    My team all starts with Lebron. He's the best player in the game. Unless Atlanta wants to move Smith, they simply have nobody that can guard him. He will also make things too difficult for Danny Granger defensively, just like we saw in their playoff series. At PG, Jose Calderon is simply not quick enough to slow down the speedy Ty Lawson. Calderon will not be able to contain Lawson line to line and he would excel at pushing the ball. Wesley Matthews could force the shot happy Nick Young into taking some difficult and bad shots. Matthews is not a great defender, but he's good enough to slow down Young. At the four, if Atlanta decides to put Smith on Lebron you will have a offensive mismatch in Granger on Humphries. Humphries will be able to out muscle him downlow and will collect a lot of offensive boards. At C, this is the most interesting matchup. Gortat has the ability to put Mek in positions he does not want to be in. He can pull Mek out of the paint making things easier for guys like Lawson and Lebron, or he can force Mek into guarding those guys in the pick and roll which he can't do.

    Kings win but that bench is just downright awful.

    Kings, but only because they have James.
