"I want (Hawes) to play the Pau Gasol role with Bynum," Collins said. "Both (Hawes and Gasol) like to play out on the perimeter because they can shoot the ball and are very good passers." – Doug Collins, from Sixers.com

When I heard Doug Collins wanted to start Spencer Hawes at power forward and Kwame Brown at center, I had to restrain myself from Stone Cold Stunning every piece of furniture in my bedroom – it made no sense. Spencer Hawes can't guard power forwards, and him and Kwame would've been the worst offensive combination of PF/C in the league. But now that Andrew Bynum is the Sixers starting center, starting Hawes at the four actually makes sense.
