Seattle also looks alright, especially with Wilkins and Wally playing well. If they get both Collison and Wilcox working the inside fairly well and have Wally, Wilkins and Durant playing well also, with their passing PGs Ridnour and Watson doing their job, they could surprise everyone. They need to stay healthy ofcourse and Wally for one just doesn't do that anymore
Seattle should tank the season since the very first game. They have a nice foundation for a good team there... but don't have enough talent to win consistently.
Barring injuries, they have enough talent in the right places to win at least 30 games, not that that is anything great but they are not that bad. Thing is, injuries always happen and Wally, a major player for them for them to have a chance of being a winner, is always injured
I agree with that. Seattle's main issue is obviously inexperience, as their core right now is rookies (Durant and Green), who could possibly do something in a couple years. Wally won't be effective on the Sonics because they don't have an offensive big (I don't consider Durant because his main weapon is his perimeter/shooting) to draw double teams.
I think Wally can still be a very good player and with good rebounding and defending bigs, like Wilcox and Collison, along with another good scorer, like Durant, he can be real good again. Ridnour and Watson are very good playmakers and that rounds out a possibly good team
