Can Kaman, Camby and Randolph play together at the same time? The thought intrigues me plus Dunleavy seems to think it can work. I know that Randolph can pass the ball better than most power forwards in addition to having a very effective outside shot and pretty good dribbling skills. Camby is a great passer for a big man and also has a very deep shot. I don’t see these three players crowding the paint on the offense yet they would be very scary on defense. It shall be interesting to see.
Also consider the possibility of moving Thornton to shooting guard. He seems to have good lateral movement in addition to decent passing and dribbling skills. I think he likes the midrange and deep shots more than going to the hoop so a shooting based position may suit him. Our passing problems may not be so bad – keep in mind that Baron loves to hog the ball.
As for defense on the fast breaks, some teams may hurt us, but as we just saw in Philly and San Antonio has proven for years – if a big team can get back and block out the paint, they can stop the fast break. The trick is to hit the paint frequently on offense and force the opposing players to run further on the break. I think Thornton is very quick as is Baron. We should be able to hold our own. With such a tall and versatile team, we have enormous advantages at almost every position. I know Dunleavy would like that.
