In response to EastCoastAudio's comment:
This is just a list of players that rank higher than our current blocks per minute leader Jared Sullinger that would be awfully pathetic if they were on our roster and leading us in blocks...
(as if a rookie with 20 games under his belt and no lift leading us wasnt bad enough)
Nicolas Batum, sf Portland
Matt Barnes, sf LA Clippers
Shane Battier, sf Miami
ERIC BLEDSOE, PG LA Clippers <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
James Johnson, sf Sacramento
Rasheed Wallace, Old New York
I realize shot blocking doesnt necessarily mean great defense, but something can always be said about having someone protecting the rim and although KG is still the defensive quarterback out there, he can no longer do that part. In years past we've compensated with quick hands and feet by getting charges and steals, but our steals are way down and last time I checked Jared Sullinger was leading us in charges taken too! I can believe I'm saying this because Brandon Bass was terrific last year defensively (second only to KG in the league!) but I think we miss big baby this year! Or a solid 7 foot shot blocking lane clogger, Darko Milicic anyone? Jason Collins isnt going to get it done long term at center despite him playin well in that role tonight.
That's interesting and somewhat expected... The Cs desperately need a good big man, hard to watch lay up after lay up after dunk and after another dunk.
