Hypotheticaly Al Horford signs the same deal but stays in Atlanta but Dwight Howard decides to join the Celtics. Judging by the way they've played this season who do you prefer?

Dwight- instantly solves most of our problems but obviously won't be spreading the floor
2 (22.2%)
Al- Although he ain't rebounding he's still contributing in every facet and all around makes us better
7 (77.8%)

Do we really need a rebounder?

So maybe I've overreacted in some of my last few posts and I apologise for that. (just disappointed like all of you)

Obviously yes we need a rebounder but rather than venting frustrating I'd like to see what you guys have to say

Personally I think Horford has been great I just wish the team would give him more post ups and scoring opportunities.

However sometimes he looks for a better option which simply isn't there.

Dwight would give us that big body to compete against the bulls and playoff teams but is he worth it as he kills our offence in terms of pace and space.
As the Miami Heat watch 34-year-old Dwyane Wade walk away for nothing, it's a good time to remember that the Boston Celtics turned 35-year-old Paul Pierce and 37-year-old Kevin Garnett into a package that included three first-round picks and a TE Isiah Thomas.

I think we need a guy like Holmes from Philly. I doubt Philly would give him up though

Yeah for all his woes horford has actually been ok at the boards (I'd take 11 rebounds from him all day), and also yes we do need a rebounder but he needs to be able to play in the system as well like the Gasol brothers (if Pau ever opts out I would like to go hard after him in FA)

We need rebounders. But not one-dimesional stiffs like Drummond or Jordan. We need someone who is agile enough in the perimeter and capable of knocking down long range jumpers.

If I was GM for a day, I'd overpay for Holmes.  He can score in bunches, protect the rim, rebound (when motivated), and hit the 3.  I can't imagine a better fit relative to style of play, age, and personality.

NO!
What we need is a bunch of smallish guards and undersized utility guys.

Sorry I couldn't resist it!  ;D
