Scoring options

Posts on another board got me to thinking... who are our scoring options. My list from 4 to 1:

#4- Richard Hendrix
He's a cog in the middle, a rebounder, picks up the "garbage" points off misses, and plays decent D. However his offensive skills are limited as he hasn't shown a midrange jumper (yet).

#3- Alonzo Gee
The only reason he's #3 is the guys ahead of him have senority. He's a slasher, rebounds well, an outside threat. He'll be our go to guy next season.

#2 Ronald Steele
As of right now he's our best shooter, he penetrates, dishes, and even rebounds if the D is asleep at the wheel. He's the best at creating his own shot on the team, but he's #2 as his main job is still to distribute the ball. If he doesn't play 40MPG (and if he does it's borderline criminal) he'll be the go to guy down the stretch. He's going to make some NBA franchise really, really happy.

#1 Jamereo Davidson
2 years ago he was a shot blocker, last year he was a force in all aspects fo the game. This is going to sound bad, but Chuck Davis going down for the year gave him an opening to shine and he did in fact shine. JD has a nice low post game, medium range jumper, great defender, and is obviously a tremendous rebounder. Steele and Hollinger will feed hm early and often. My only concern is now that JD has the spotlight on him can he handle double teams and find the open man on the perimeter or slashing to the basket. I think the answer is yes. His stats might not look any better than last year, but I believe he'll be a more complete player.
