It's asinine. It's well known that David Lee is a black hole on defense, the entire league knows how easy it is to abuse him on defense, and we're playing him against the best center in basketball? When we have an adequate defensive center in Darko? Obviously putting Darko in doesn't guarantee that we win this game, but it couldn't have ruined our chances. There's no way Darko wouldn't have been better on defense tonight than Lee was.
Also my two cents is that we should never play Nate Robinson ever again.
