    I really can't wait to see this team offensively once Davis and Gordon come back and take the minutes we are giving the Lance Thomas's, Xavier Henry's and Roger Mason's of the world. I think defense will be a season long struggle, but this could be a top 5 offense when we are 100% healthy
    Interest in the unknown. I wouldn't say everyone expect this much production, but everyone expected production at an efficent rate. Lopez is more of an unknown. we know anderson fits in the big picture, weren't sure about Lopez.

    Anyone know how to get him to spot up outside three in the game, especially in transition?
    Have to mess with tendancies i think.

    I tend to make him pick and fade near the three point line once people catch on to it, it's PnR all day

    There is a play called "41 something" that you can run for him and it gets him open looks behind the arc 7 out of 10 times. Money play

    I would be totally cool with this.

    first of all, Lopez plays hard and has actually exceeded all my expectations....secondly though, I am just not big on his long term future here....I, for one, will be keeping an eye on that kid from New Zealand who is playing at Pitt this year....

    I started writing this post to tell everyone to slow down on the Ryan Anderson talk. That we should wait to see him do this for 82 games. That the Magic got off to a hot start last year because of Ryno and slowed down as people began developing game plans to stop him.

    Then I tried to get to 30 guys I'd rather have than him...... and I barely got there. If he can keep this up, and as he spreads the floor when Davis and Gordon are back.....yeah he will be top 30. FWIW my .02

    PG (Paul, WB, Jrue, Rondo, Jennings, D-Will, Kyrie, Parker)8
    SG (Kobe, Harden, PP) 3
    SF (AI, Durant, LBJ, Melo, Deng, Gay) 6
    PF (Duncan, Ibaka, Bosh, KG, LaM, Davis, Love, Griffin) 8
    C ( Howard, Pau, Noah, Varejao, Al) 5

    I would put him over Griffen, Varejao, and Ibaka, but overall, that list is pretty good.

That’s what is most important to me. When it comes to stats, there are places I could go where I could get every shot and every touch, but that’s not important. I want to be on a team to win and build up and have a close group that fights together. That’s what we have. I’m excited about the team aspect of it. For my career, I think that’s what I’m looking forward to.
    This guy is awesome.
