Gilbert Brown - Brown mirrors Kennedy rather a lot. With good size and very good athleticism for the wing, Brown thrived as a role player, never consistently asked to do anything offensively other than finish. He did this well, improving into a 41% three point shooter, passing well, chipping in with the rebounding, running the court, defending the perimeter and making few mistakes. Brown can't handle the ball or create, but there's always a need for role players of this type, those who realise that they are actually role players without the Antoine Wright-like moments of grandeur.

Filling in at the forward spots are 6'5 junior Nasir Robinson, and 6'6 senior Gilbert Brown. Like Wanamaker, Robinson plays a unique game; he has a shooting guard's height, frame and athleticism, yet he rarely leaves the paint, and any time spent out there usually results in a turnover.
