I don't know that Soriano will be an every-game starter or a 30 MPG guy.  In fact I'd be surprised if that's the case.  I suspect that he will start a fair number of games and that his floor time in any particular game will depend on the matchup - Coach A is clearly comfortable playing smaller lineups to speed up the game.  But Soriano will be absolutely invaluable for the (many) times that we really need a big man at one end of the floor or the other.  He gives us a dimension that has been sorely lacking.  Love that we will be able to play different ways instead of having to play small ball out of necessity.

I feel sorry for Soriano

If he doesn't average a double double this fan base is going to turn on him so quickly.  The chosen big man they have waited forever to get and he won't meet their unrealistic expectations.

Well I for one am just glad we have a center and wish him  good luck .  Do  not expect greatness just want him to fill a hole we had for yrs  and fit into our system which if he does will bring with  it many wins

With what we've gotten from the center position lately if he averages half a double double (5 and 5) I'll probably feel like we have stubbled across the second coming of Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

As long as he averages 18 and 14, and maybe 5 bpg, he won't have any issues with me. But I'll cut him some slack if it's only 4.5 bpg.

No fouling out either.
