Champinoship Crew

Champinoship Crew

               

Jason Kidd, PG 

There is no doubt that Jason Kidd is aging. However, at full health Kidd is one of the best point guards in the league. He is a great passer and a great defender. He is also a physical rebounder who can crash the boards when needed. On Champinoship Crew, Kidd will focus on getting the ball in the hands of the shooters, as well as lock down the point guard of the opposing team.

 

Andre Iguodala, SG

Andre Iguodala has a great variety of skill, which is why Champinoship Crew picked him up in the third round. He can be a defender and shut down the other's team scorers, he can be the scorer on offense himself, or he can even be a passer. He has the skill to play three positions and really does a great job of focusing and being a team player. On Champinoship Crew, Iguodala will be used for his perimeter defense, ability to lead a team, and to score the ball. 

Danny Granger, SF

Danny Granger is one of the up and coming forwards in the NBA. He is a deadly shooter, and physical on both sides of the ball. He can shoot threes, mid-range jumpers, he can crash boards, he can play defense on power forwards and even some centers because of his versatility. His long wingspan will help when it comes to shot-blocking. On Champinoship Crew, Granger will look to be the main scorer alongside Andre Iguodala, as well as crash the boards and play defense on big forwards.

LaMarcus Aldridge, PF

LaMarcus Aldridge is another young player who is making a name for himself in the NBA. A dominant inside scorer and a strong rebounder, Aldridge is a great young power forward to have on your franchise. On Champinoship Crew, Aldridge will be used to rebound, block shots, and tire out some of the opposing big men with his ability to drive in and score.

Dwight Howard, C

Dwight Howard may be the best center in the NBA today, and there are lots of reasons as to why. He is a monstrous rebounder, as well a fierce shot-blocker. He can also put up twenty points per game and hurt your big men inside. His dominating efforts will be huge for Champinoship Crew. On Champinoship Crew, Howard will be used for his rebounding and defense.

NBA Quarterfinals Preview and Predictions

(1) Los Angeles Lakers vs. (8) Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets are a great offensive team. If basketball was all offense, Denver would probably win it all or come close at least. However, it's not all offense, therefore, Denver won't have much of a chance in the playoffs. In a high scoring series, the defense-less Nuggets won't be able to stop the Lakers...

Prediction: LAL 4-0

(1) Boston Celtics vs. (8) Atlanta Hawks


The Celtics are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, and the Hawks won't be able to score much against them. Joe Johnson may be able to score at will, but the others will struggle...

Prediction: BOS 4-0

(2) New Orleans Hornets vs. (7) Dallas Mavericks

The Mavericks are known for choking in the playoffs, but this this year they won't have a chance because they are underdogs against the Hornets. I think Jason Kidd may be able to slow down Chris Paul somewhat, but not entirely. I think this one will be close because of the Hornets' lack of experience, which is a big factor...

Prediction: DAL 4-3  

(2) Detroit Pistons vs. (7) Philadelphia 76ers 
 
The Pistons are a good defensive team as well, and I believe if they can stop Andre Igoudala, they can win the series. Andre Miller is a darkhorse, filled with talent. However, it will be hard to use his talent against a well-balanced team like the Pistons. I think the 76ers are a strong team, it's unfortunate that they're playing probably the best team in the East. Also the deep bench of the Pistons will be too much...

Prediction: DET 4-2

(3) San Antonio Spurs vs. (6) Phoneix Suns

Offense vs. Defense... defense always wins. This series is no exception. San Antonio is so dangerous come playoff time that it's scary. With Shawn Marion, the Suns would have a shot. Without him, San Antonio should cruise through this series, making it easier than expected...

Prediction: SAS 4-1

(3) Orlando Magic vs. (6) Toronto Raptors

The injury-prone Raptors could give the Magic a hard time, but I see Dwight Howard and Hedo Turkoglu as too hard to stop in this series. The only hope for the Raptors is that Chris Bosh goes off, and Dwight Howard goes cold...

Prediction: ORL 4-2

(4) Utah Jazz vs. (5) Houston Rockets

Utah is too well-balanced to lose to Houston. Shane Battier is a darkhorse, but he can't win this series. Yao would give the Rockets a shot to win, but seeing as though he's not here...

Prediction: UTA 4-2

(4) Cleveland Caveliers vs. (5) Washington Wizards

LeBron James won't have another miracle run this year. Losing Drew Gooden will hurt and it will show. Caron Butler needs to step it up on both sides, and I think he can. It will be another close one, but...

Prediction: WAS 4-3
