Let me start off by saying I am very very happy with how things worked out. 2007-08 was one of the best years of my life. I got to be in the building on June 17 and took my kids to the parade. That said:
Our starting lineup would be Rondo, Pierce, Durant, Big Al, and Perkins. If TomT still came here, maybe the Defense would have been decent with Rondo and Perk at key positions. Pierce would be transitioning the "star" mantle to Durant in his waning years and we'd have the key position that we are missing now as we look to the future - the scorer. Al, Rondo, Perk, and KevinD would be very formidable if they could be signed.
