Default Delonte West is underrated.

This dude has ALWAYS had mad game.

He was just as big a reason for St. Joe's success in college as Jameer Nelson. I remember watching them light it up. That was one of my all time favorite college teams.

He is so underrated tho. LIke when people say LeBron has a bunch of role players around him. Shit thats a smack in the face to guys like Big Z, Mo Williams, and especially West.

The dude is a great defender....yea, LeBron got 1st team all defense, but West is our best on the ball defender.

He can run point or play the 2 guard, can break his man down off the dribble at any time and nail the pull up jumper.
Excellent mid range game and can step out and hit 3's.

Can take it to the hoop and finish strong or finesse it up and score. Great FT shooter, good passer.

I don't see how that constitues a 'role' player. Thats about as complete as you can get.

Dude is one of the main reasons why the Cavs are as successful as they have been.

He's good, but he's a good role-player

He does a little bit of everything well in bursts, but he's never going to be go-to guy, or carry a team for an extended period, or get that weird birthmark thing off his face

I like the way he plays, but he's still a roleplayer.

Everybody on that team seems better than they are because of LeBron. He is already one of the best ever at making people around him look good.

Mo Williams and Z and DeLonte and Verajao and everybody on that team is a good roleplayer.

The team has great chemistry and is well put together, but without lebron, they are a borderline playoff team at best.

I agree with some points, like the Cavs are a borderline playoff team without him.

But I dunno, maybe I think of a 'roleplayer' as something bad.

But I dont think Z and Mo are roleplayers. They have been all stars in the past.

For instance, Rondo is not a roleplayer. He is an essential part of that team. Without him, Boston cannot win a championship.

As opposed to say...Eddie House.

Same with Cleveland...West...Mo Williams are needed to win a champoinship, but Boobie Gibson is not.

James Posey was essential to the Celtics winning the title last year, and I considered him a good player, but he was still a role-player.

I would consider Posey a role player.

Regardless, Dwight Howards numbers will resemble a role players this series.

Who's going to shut him down? I thought KP did as good a job as you can do, but he still gets his numbers.

Its hard to keep him off the glass.

Of course, besides Rondo, without KG and Powe, the Celtics aren't very athletic.

well actually it looks like they are going to let Dwight go one on one to shut down the Turk and Lewis, which I think is smart because Howard doesn't have enough moves inside or at least he isn't very consistent.

Than at crucial points, you can double him, cuz you will eventually have to.

But I wouldnt let the Magic stay in teh game with 3's. I'd chance it later when the pressure is higher.

The Celtics did okay..your not going to stop Dwight, but you can somewhat control him, and if he is taking the shots and not getting dunks, than you also keep him off the glass somewhat.

more people need to realize this, because without Lebron, the Cavs are barely an 8th seed, some can argue that they aren't even a playoff team without him

Lebron pushed Howard out of the way late in the game, and Howard gets called for his
6th foul?
