After watching what is going to be my most memorable game (Denver game) it's clear Biedrins and Turiaf aren't the answer. Biedrins is too soft and can't even shoot free throws so he's not even in the game during the 4th quarter. What good is our starting center if we can't even count on him in the 4th quarter which leads to Nellie going small and makes all of us go WHY THE HECK ARE WE GOING SMALL IN THE 4th?! We obviously need a big man that can control the paint, box out, and doesn't even have to be a great blocker. WE NEED someone that can control the paint without having to block shots because we know Randolph will already come from the weak side. We need someone tough like Nene which isn't even that good but he has that fire in him that would make anyone scared to try and bang with him on the street courts.
We need to trade Biedrins away if we are going to make it in this tough conference. He clearly isn't going to cut it for us in the playoffs if we ever get back there. I know he just came off a lengthy injury but seriously... do you really think Biedrins can take on the likes of Bynum / Yao / Nene / Duncan / ... I can go on and on about all the mismatches Biedrins has. Let's be real... the dude isn't going to improve much more and we need to get someone that can help us dig deep in the 4th and be a real post presence.
Our team will NEVER have problems scoring so we need to balance it out with someone at the 5 that can actually play some defense. Yes, I know it's our wing defenders that are letting the guys go to the basket at will but what about all of those offensive rebounds were giving up? It's really painful to see our guys grab a defensive rebound... It's like they are at 2:1 odds when they try to grab defensive rebounds. What's so hard about bodying up when a shot goes up...
So what do you guys think? Keep Biedrins? It's just our whole team not bodying up? It's Randolph and Turiaf's fault for trying to block everything?
It's our 5's that are causing teams to destroy us in the paint.
