WALLY SZCZERBIAK, SF, and KEVIN GARNETT, PF
WHY IT WILL WORK
No Latrell Sprewell means a return to the starting lineup for Szczerbiak. At 29 the Big Ticket knows that for him to have a chance at a ring, he must help Wally World get back to his All-Star form of 2002.
WHY IT WON'T WORK
Whether because of Szczerbiak's cockiness or his questionable shot selection, he and KG have never been on the same page. Garnett values loyalty, and Szczerbiak's trade demands this summer rankle.
