A lot of player movement this NBA offseason for what moves will work and will not work was look into the crystal ball this guy right here at H round Blakely -- Celtics insiders -- out. We got to start out in Hollywood Dwight Howard's Superman now in LA will work for them now. I think is going to be one of those situations where he will make an impact but it's not going to be nearly as big an impact as he is hope for the Lakers. You look at Oklahoma City surgeons rock you back into Perkins two guys who had a lot of success defensively against white. Those guys are gonna make him a non factor when -- to me in the playoffs and that I think is ultimately was doing the Lakers -- about Kobe don't call and you also have Steve Nash LA. Little deeper especially in this starting if this were 2005. -- liked but this 2012. Steve Nash is not the same Kobe Bryant as good as he is is not the same council not the same. They're good but they've got guys tour and outside of their careers and I think that is really going to be that the other team that calls the staples center on that LA Clippers a lot expected from them this year especially when you at look at their depth they've and it Lamar Odom. Grant Hill. Matt Barnes I think that title contenders -- because a stone the best team in their city let alone one of the top teams in NBA. Lakers will run that whole situation they're not that in the San Antonio they're not better. -- Oklahoma City and if you're not one of the top two or three teams. Atkinson who outside of Boston and he's challenged Miami this -- Philadelphia I think they're the one team that a lot of people are concerned about because that guy Andrew Bynum. We get to the playoffs becomes more half court game and having a dominant force like him around the basket can only help your team your chances of going deep into the playoffs as we look at some of the individual honors out there let's talk about rookie of the year but he figured this was a tough one for me but I have to -- Anthony Davis. Big numbers bad team almost automatically equals review the -- -- I don't know when he won the number. Primary I think he'd reach in my part I know I just think he's going to be that he's going to be one of those guys. We're talking about 8910 years from now. Who's that guy under the radar that would have a breakout season off -- horse in the in Indiana Pacers he is one of -- one of the tougher matches because he's so tall and lanky yet he has ability to play on the perimeter I think he's gonna really established himself as the go to guy on that team. MVP LeBron James at three time MVP why won't he went -- who will take. -- it's his time this is this is the right moment to be the best players in the league I think the pain he went through and losing that style is going really catapult him mostly and tantalized to be.
