Would we be a better team, with Zach Randolph in the line up?
As far as I am concerned both Boozer and Randolph bring the same thing on the court (off the court is a different matter of course).
And if you want a post player, look no further than Diaw. In fact, he has a MUCH more refined post up/back to the basket game than Boozer.
I'm not so sure about Zach Randolph and Boozer being the same. If nothing else, Boozer brings a far better attitude and seems to be a much better team player.
I also don't really think that Diaw is better than Diaw in the post. Even if they were the same there, Diaw has the ability to play either forward spot or a point forward position as well. That makes him far more flexible than Boozer and therefore it would be easier to find minutes for him as a 6th man.
I do hear what you are saying though. Diaw makes it not necessary for us to get a 4 but I sure would love the depth it would give us.
What about Wallace playing the 2 spot and having Boozer, Diaw and Wallace on the floor at the same time?

Good point but maybe in this situation, as long as he was getting starter minutes, he would see the bigger picture and not be unhappy. Maybe...

1) I would rather have Diaw in the lineup than Boozer, hands down. Diaw creates advantages lineup wise that we would lose with Boozer. Diaw is very fast for a PF, has a decent low post game, and is a threat at the end of games...and he is supposedly smarter than any coach on this team :p
2) Wallace can't play the two, because he isnt a shooter. It's been tried in the past, and has not worked.
3) I doubt Diaw would be happy as the 6th man on a team that's never made the playoffs if he wasn't happy as the 6th man on a championship contender...
