And I get the gelling; it will take time. A few weeks sounds right, truthfully. But the individual efforts just aren't coming through, either; STAT's offensive inefficiency, compounded by asinine D and awareness is just absurd.
I'm not even mad, because I never had overly lofty expectations, but it just sucks to see this.
STAT has always been extremely flawed; but his flaws were sufficiently masked by being the most dominant inside scorer in the NBA, and being lethal enough to carry an offense and be a centerpiece on that end.
When people were lobbying for us to sign Amare, pointing to his destruction of the Lakers in the playoffs (offensively), I was pointing to the trend of him being outrebounded by Steven Nash, and porous D.
It took time for Felton and STAT to gel, though. People were up in arms saying STAT and Felton would *never* be able to run the P&R together, so....
