What some people call a problem at the backup power forward spot, I call a bigger problem at the starting center spot.
Jeff Foster as the backup big man is virtually ideal, considering the offensive punch that would inevitably be on the floor with him. Jeff Foster (or DD) as a starting center is far from ideal.
Moreover, I really don't understand how some of the same people who say there's a backup power forward problem also go on to say that Jermaine O'Neal needs too many touches. This is Jermaine O'Neal. He's going to play 36 minutes. What more offense do you want from the position?
You're only as good as your top seven will take you. We've got six, plus a rookie and some guys who, while solid, won't see the floor enough to matter (unless David Harrison learns to rebound and defend).
If I'm BirdWalsh, I'm not sitting on the couch smoking a cigar over a solid addition. I'm looking for the final piece.
