which team has the best second unit in the NBA this year?
my favorite team, the raptors, have a fairly decent second unit that would look like:
PG- Jarret Jack
SG- Marco Belinelli
SF- Demar Derozan
PF- Amir Johnson/ Reggie Evans
C- Rasho Nesterovic
Pf cunningham/ juan howard not sure whos making the team yet
Pg blake miller or bayless
basically this whole team has interchangeable parts that can either start or come off the bench its kinda scary
Its either the Blazers or the Wizards. They both have strong and benches that can go 12 deep or more if they choose without suffering too much..
good topic dmo. i like that second unit for toronto, plus they have kris humphries and marcus banks making them even deeper. i can see them being a 4th or 5th seed in the east this year
humphries was traded to dallas in the shawn marion deal :(
i really liked humphries, brought a lot of energy and could actually put the ball in the hoop, he will be missed
blazers by far
blake, fernandez, batum, outlaw, and pryzbilla could compete with most starting lineups
I think the Blazers will have the best 2nd unit, but don't sleep on the Wizards' 2nd unit.
Denver and San Antonio also have decent second units, none that will match up with the blazers, raptors, and wizards tho..
PG- Anthony Carter
Sg- Arron Afflalo
SF- Joey Graham
a very defensive second unit
PG- George Hill
SG- Manu Ginobili
SF- Michael Finley
PF- Dejuan Blair
C- Antonio McDyess
Also... The Magic have very good backups which will help them on their playoff run.
PG- Anthony Johnson
San Antonio is looking good. George Hill is underrated. He could start for a lot of teams.
PG: Randy Foye
SG: Nick Young
SF: Dominic McGuire
PF: Andre Blatche
C: Javale McGee
It doesn't really get much better than that as far as second units are concerned
