Though Powe and Baby have been playing well (Powe in particular looks ready to be a consistent rotation guy--Baby is not quite there yet), I still have a desire to add more depth to our frontcourt. I've always had it in the back of my mind that when the time arises, we'll be bringing PJ Brown back to the team. But now that McDyess' name is being tossed around, I've entertained the thought of having him on the bench, instead of PJ.
Though McDyess is not a physical player like PJ, he does add more offensive punch. And his athleticism should help defensively against whoever we will face from the Western Conference in the Finals--whether it be Andrew Bynum (or Pau Gasol) of the Lakers, or Tyson Chandler of the Hornets. McDyess athleticism matches up better against those guys.
I'm happy with PJ, if he's the guy we take with us to the playoffs. And I'll be happy also, if McDyess ends up being the guy.
