We all know we need a fresh injection of offense, particularly in the second unit.
Can we pick up a pass first point guard to change things around and let Collison be the offensive surge with the subs? Probably not before this summer.
Can we find a Vinnie Johnson microwave pickup at the 2 spot before the deadline? Probably not.
Well, I would like to try an experiment at least once to see if the help we need is staring right in front of us.
I'd like to see one game where Lance is allowed to shoot 15 times. Put it in his hands, let him drive, pass, or shoot. Let's see what happens.
I know, it's likely he's not ready yet, much less born that way. But I happen to think there is, say, a 20 percent chance that, given the reigns and the freedom to make some mistakes (like miss a few shots and make a few turnovers), that the overall outcome could be really great.
I'm not saying give him the reigns to the team for a while. I'm saying give him the reigns to the second unit FOR ONE GAME. Let's see what happens.
If it fails, I'm good. Curiosity satisfied. Possible fallout: one loss.
But with as much as we've invested in Lance so far, I think it's worth the experiment.
