Who starts at center?

The Desnews is reporting that Memo is out for tomorrow night's game and for the foreseeable future. Apparently a family illness will keep him in Turkey. We wish Memo's family the best.

The article also notes that Fesenko is in Canada working on visa issues. And Collins, aside from not really being a center or a basketball player, is still hurt. So, who does that leave as the starting center in tomorrow's game against the 76ers? Maybe this guy:


That's right. The first round draft "steal" may be an NBA starter before he has posted a single point, rebound, assist, steal, or block in the NBA. Kosta's career stats to this point include zero points on 0-3 shooting and one personal foul in a little over six minutes of action.

Our starting lineup on Tuesday may be Boozer, Ronnie Price, Ronnie Brewer, CJ Miles, and Kosta. That's eastern conference lottery team quality. This road trip just got a whole lot more interesting.

Collins can only participate in noncontact drills in November after hurting his elbow in a golf cart accident this summer. You can't make this stuff up. "Soft" doesn't even begin to describe him.

We need help in the middle. ASAP.

Are we still talking about Collins? Really?

Uggggghh

Even worse. We're talking about Kofous.

Agree to disagree Crotty Kid. Let's be honest, Kofous may not be a great option right now, but he CANNOT be worse than Collins.

I would rather see Kofous play center for us than Collins for two reasons. One, he has successfully played basketball at some level at some point in his life. Two, he is taller than 6'7.

Your comments on Collins v. Kosta are well-taken. I just worry that our citizenship will suffer without Collins on the floor. But the young kid seems to be very polite so maybe I have nothing to worry about.
