I'm telling you, that "small ball" lineup is gonna kill us some nights. Hollins and Dudley logged a COMBINED 3 minutes in last night's game, a number almost doubled by Othella Harrington, who - let's face it - is barely mobile and useful. Dudley and Hollins present two players who have the ability to pull down boards, particularly Dudley, who is tough...exactly why he's in Radio's doghouse is unknown to me.
More rebounding would sure help. A Western Conference player-personnel executive I know saw the Bobcats live for the first time this season Wednesday. He was struck by how easily the Kings pushed around the Bobcats under the boards (a 16-rebound advantage), because Sacramento is the second-worst rebounding team in the league. The Bobcats are 27th among 30 teams.
