In response to Kirk6's comment:
Screw Cousins. He's a knucklehead.
I like our team the way it is.
Wilcox and Melo will be here before too long.
No, we need help.
Its pretty obvious that AB has helped reinstall our defensive attitude on the court. Its as obvious as nite and day since he came back. Our team looks better overall. With that being said we are only a slightly better rebounding team, (because of Sully) and so far our offense hasn't taken off. This is due to JT not fitting in yet. (notice I said yet) I don't want a major shakeup of our team. We do however need a presence underneat and it is not Collins.
The guys we can't trade:
PP, KG, RR, Sully, AB,
Possible: Green, Lee, JT, Barbosa (would make no sense to trade), Bass
If we can get someone with the guys mentioned I am all for it, as long as its not all of them. Throw in a couple picks.
Someone like Dalembert could be a easy pickup. Wouldn't disrupt our chemistry because it wouldn't take a impact player to get. Its obvious throughout the NBA world that we need another big. To say we don't is absurd. I would love another physical tough guy.
Posters are judging what we need on 3 wins in a row. 3 wins? You got to be kidding. We have struggled all year, everyone knows what our number 1 weakness is, and now we are going to ignore it because we won 3 in a row. That is weak.
One other position DA should look at is a backup to RR. I have no idea why we have never addressed this need. Last nite was a perfect example. We played well without RR but wouldn't it have nice to have a true backup PG?
BTW I love Barbosa. Would be silly to trade considering how much he costs us. He has been a shot in the arm a bunch this year. Instant offense, and while he may not be a great defensive player he hustles his butt off.
