Considered best point guard in NBA; hates losing more than he likes winning.

11 JAMAL CRAWFORD 13; 6-5; 13.9; 2.0; 3.2;

A sprinter with the ball, but he needs to stay under control.

34 WILLIE GREEN 10; 6-3; 7.6; 1.5; 0.8;

May start until Billups gets back; a solid player.

Very athletic but is still learning the game.

FORWARDS:

32 BLAKE GRIFFIN 3; 6-10; 20.7; 10.9; 3.2;

One of the NBA's most exciting players; looking for an improved jump shot.

Veteran lost weight in the summer, ready for another solid season.

7 LAMAR ODOM 14; 6-10; 6.6; 4.2; 1.7;

One of the team's most versatile players.

33 GRANT HILL 19; 6-8; 10.2; 3.5; 2.2.

Forty-year-old still recovering from bone bruise in right knee, but a key role player.

Recovering from left knee injury; team likes his skill set.

21 RONNY TURIAF 8; 6-10; 3.0; 4.1; 0.6;

CENTERS:

6 DEANDRE JORDAN 5; 6-11; 7.4; 8.3; 0.3;

We'll see whether his offense has improved.

15 RYAN HOLLINS 7; 7-0; 3.4; 2.1; 0.2;

Ex-Bruin is a quality backup big man.
