Beach VB: What about Karch and Whit as a team?

Forgetting for the moment that Karch will probably retire before
Dodd :), what do people think of KK-Whit as a team?

Personally, I believe that they would be BETTER than KK-KS.
1) Whit has solved, so it seems, his physical stamina problem.
2) Whit is the BEST (biggest) blocker.
        --> Karch would no longer have to hit around him. :)
3) If U think Dodd is great behind Whit...

I know, there are a few potential pitfalls:
1) Service game is much less (but Dodd-Whit have shown this
        is not necessary).
2) Whit's setting?  This is improving by leaps and bounds from
        a few years ago though.
3) Can Karch learn to play hoops w/ Whit during their off time? :) :)

(Actually, my dream team is Karch-Michael Jordan.  Just imagine
        those 2 guys competing on the same team for anything...
        But, that's only a dream.)

I was hoping Michael Jordon would try volleyball when he was retired
from basketball.  I would imagine he would learn very quickly and      
excel at the game.  Just imagine, Michael going for a monster spike
with his tongue*** out.

I think that Karch's greatness stems largely from the fact that he is so great
at all the skills.  Whit, on the other hand, is not an all around player but a
specialist (although he is making strides).  I think it makes more sense for
Karch to pair up with a partner that is, like himself, well rounded.  That is
why you see him with the likes of Steffes and Ack and rarely with someone like
Whit or Stoklos.

Personally, I'd like to see Kiraly pair with Dodd.  The court sense, etc. would
be amazing, plus they've played well together in past KOB events.

Let's not even speculate on a Mike and Mike split.  It's so damned
refreshing to see a team on tour that obviously enjoys one another...plays
through the rough times...and doesn't look for a partner change to solve
everything.

M&M, don't change a thing.
