So right away, Flip Saunders inherits by farrepparttar superior team, withrepparttar 151137 better core of players. The job for Dumars is to keeprepparttar 151138 team intact. Despite his lack of success inrepparttar 151139 playoffs, Saunders has a reputation as being cool under fire after having T’Wolves GM Kevin McHale breathing down his neckrepparttar 151140 last few seasons. He is also a players coach, which will help in this situation, where he has a squad that gets along on and offrepparttar 151141 court and knows how to take care of business. He will also use young bench players like Darko Milivick and Jason Maxiell. Dumars because increasingly upset with Brown for stuntingrepparttar 151142 development ofrepparttar 151143 younger guys. Dumars does have an ego, and drafting Milivick over Carmelo Anthony has made him look silly.

Detroit’s players showed duringrepparttar 151144 playoffs that they can ignore distractions and win tough series’; they are stillrepparttar 151145 favorite to come out ofrepparttar 151146 East despite Miami, Cleveland, and New Jersey adding pieces to their puzzles. This team will win 55 games inrepparttar 151147 regular season and be hungry to return torepparttar 151148 finals.

Withrepparttar 151149 Knicks roster issues, this year will be a wash, and they’ll look to unload some big money contracts so they can moldrepparttar 151150 team into their new coach’s image (defense and working for good shots). No doubt New York is a 2006-2007 playoff team, but a NBA Lotto participant this coming season. Unfortunately for Isaiah Thomas, Coach Brown gets antsy after a season or two, so this could turn into another rebuilding project forrepparttar 151151 man who succeeds Brown. Isaiah may not be around either to make that hiring.
