Garcia v. Corliss (and Manhattan v. Utah)

Apparently, the backup 3 spot is up for grabs, with Francisco Garcia (who we all thought was a 2) battling the oldest King, Corliss Williamson to be Peja's sub.

Sam Amick writes that Garcia is taking too many bad shots, but is defending Peja well in practice and passing great. Good signs. He's also putting some weight on.

I'd like to see the kid get some early season action - we know what Nasty can do and what he can't. Let's develop a player in the regular season, for a change.

Also, apparently all three backup point guards not named Ricky Paulding are battling for the Bibby backup spot. Jason Hart has to be a shoe-in - the guy is one of the top 5 backup points in the league. He's not getting beat out by a rook from Utah Valley State or a sophomore recently cut by the Nuggets.

But it'll be interesting to see if Petrie decides to carry four point guards on the roster, sending one to the inactive list and Albuquerque. That player might end up better off - playing three times a week as one of your teams' stars is better than practicing against the top players in the world and watching games from the bench, I think.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
