Ok when the season started this is what was on my mind:
2.Make playoffs-In Progress
3.Hope Stat goes coocoo-Check
Now this thread is about the D. We show great intensity we get lots of blocks and we do give effort for the most part.
There's always mental lapses with anyone,including the smelldicks, but, I keep reading about we need defensive players.
My question is who's still coaching this team? Yes, he's not saying go shoot 500 3's but he's also not Tom Thibbadeau. For what we have were doing great defensively if anybody has noticed. This team wasn't even built on D which is why I don't understand what everyone is talking about. They are NOT a defensive team and won't be until A: D'ant is gone and B:We build the team around a defensive coach. You don't acquire players that don't play the style you want. Like seriously Reggie Evans in SSOL? lol
All we can hope for our players that can atleast give effort and get the 50-50 plays. The defense will be no better acquiring 1 or 2 players because you still have the same team which isn't a D powerhouse.
Our Key Needs-Possibilities:
C that rebounds and spaces the floor(No Glen davis isn't the answer he's undersized)-M.Camby?
Go to Guy(when STAT sat the Smelldicks came back from like 10 down in the 3rd)-J.Crawford or C.Anthony?
Just want to start a discussion on this because everyone says it isn't the offense but actually the way the team is built it is.(case in point tonight when Amar'e wasn't around. No energy, no synergy,no double teams= no baskets)
