- Does Hedo continue to start and play 40 mpg if Hill decides to return?
- Can Howard average 20+ ppg and 14 rpg next year?
- Can Francis permanently keep his head in the game, or do you have to trade him while he is playing well?
- Is Kasun injured or simply can't play NBA basketball? He's the only player to not leave the bench during the streak?
