How does one execute a science experiment? Every different trial in the experiment incurs one change and has everything else remain constant. Why don't we change two things in the same trial? We would not know which change caused the difference in the experiment. It could have been either one of them. Now, I know you're wondering what I'm rambling on about, but believe me I have a point.
Take our team as an example of an experiment. Let's call all our different starting lineups the trials in the experiment. Now, everyone is saying how much better this team is playing without Jermaine. Ok, that's true...but was that the only change in the trial? No. When Jermaine left, we added Peja and Pollard and (a healthy) Foster. Maybe the difference was that they made the team better and not that Jermaine made the team worse.
All I'm saying is let's just see what our whole team looks like before shipping off Jermiane. Who knows, we might even get better. Maybe even a championship caliber team (hoping). What if Jamaal actually returns healthy? I know it's a big if, but he might actually be able to survive 3 or 4 months since he hasn't played in a while. I loe A.J.'s play as much as the next person, but it would be nice to have someone to put in when we have an offensive drought without having to worry about guarding some of the bigger guards.
Lets not ship off Jermiane before we see what he can do with this group. From what I saw in the beginning of the season he really was trying to pass out whenever someone was open. How sweet is it going to be when Jermaine's actually passing out with Peja on the wings? And actually having a post presence that isn't in foul trouble half the time and can finish around the rim? Let's just give it a try before everyone calls for Jermaine's head.
