Hopefull Joel is good enough to Start for us because Blount and Magloire are terrible.

That gives us a short team.

PG 6'1" - SG 6'4" - SF 6'7" - PF 6'8" - C 6'9"

at least we have alot of decent bench players, Joel, Magloire, Blount, Wright, cook, Jones, haslem, Chalmers, Banks, Livingston if healthy. maybe we can package up a few of them for another quality starter.

Coach Spo should definitely give Joel the nod to start in Detroit on Sunday. We need to see if he can hold his own against the quality bigs DET has. Can he out-rebound Maxiell, & Brown? Can he neutralize Sheed's offensive weapons on the low block? Is he strong post player that holds his own against bigger players, or is paper soft like Howard in the playoffs? Play him early, play him often, we need him to make great strides to add depth at the the 5 spot!!
