Also, with Ajinca, we have another athletic, thin, potential at big to go with guys that could be the same thing with Hollins/Davidson. None of those guys would command a double team next year, like Lopez would. And Lopez is not without shot blocking value-because of his reach. Down the road-this could translate into less fouls in the post.
And we all saw what happened in the playoffs this year-pretty much any year-where the team doesn't have to guard one of the other teams players. The other team begins to be less efficient/effective.
I hear what you're saying Mustachio, about versatility and potential, and maybe you're right...I sure hope so-REALLY.
I also trust LB's coaching ability, but wasn't he on board in Detroit-although not the trigger man - when they selected Darko, instead of Bosh, Wade, or Carmello? Just saying...;>)
Maybe there is a plan to detonate the team, but I would like to see what LB can do with the guys we have first. And if he does, then I think adding Bayless/Lopez, Arthur/Chalmers, and CDR would have given the team a better chance to win next year-and the next several years as well.
