    Look... everything is relative. During our struggles last year after the lock-out when we were looking for leaders and Melo to acquiesce to the old system, Novak was a little-known bright spot. He had one job on a team looking to play no Defense and chuck away.

    Since teams know what to expect he's neutralized. His only hope now is to lay low until we further incorporate a drive and dish or low-post kick-out game. His limitations prevent us from drawing up screens and such for him so thats not an option.
    If the thread topic weren't so clear, I'd swear this was a post about D'Antoni in classic Red fashion. +1.

    I have a thought.

    Blend Novak, Brewer, and Copeland into one mega-scoring, mega-defending, all around SF/PF hybrid MONSTER

    Roneveris Copewvak!!!

    This is it. Take JR for example, he misses a ton of shots (not recently) every now and then, but he also rebounds and gets steals and assists. When you contribute nothing else to the table while failing to do the only thing you're good at then it turns into a liability.

    I think Woodson should play Novak in short spurts instead of long minutes at a time. Its like a woman wearing high heel shoes to jog.
