    And I really don't get why people keep going to the "Roy isn't getting the ball where he needs it" argument.

    Against Milwaukee Larry Sanders (!) was able to keep Roy at about 20'. The whole time he was in. 20'. Then, when Roy would get the ball, he'd either turn it over by trying some complex dribble drive, or take a wild running hook shot.

    It's going to be hard for the team to work on getting your 7' center the ball when he's not getting good position, or doing positive things with the ball once he gets it.

    I'd say:

    #1 - Roy needs to work on getting early position.

    #2 - Roy needs to work on protecting his position.

    #3 - The guards need to ensure that Roy gets the ball as soon as he has that position.

    #4 - Roy needs to work on decision making from the post. When to force a shot/pass/work the defender. It seems he rarely makes the "right" decision when he gets the ball down low, often settling for a heavily contested shot, or holding the ball for 7+ seconds and passing with 4 on the shot clock.

    Thing is, when it rains it pours. Once Roy gets it figured out, this whole team will look much, much better. I truly believe he will be the catalyst for change with this team.
    Perhaps I understated.

    NO ONE is getting the ball where and when needed. No Roy is not playing well. But neither is most anyone else. Hill and Augustin are tasked with running the offense and they aren't. The rest of them aren't playing the passing offense which is what brought success last year.

    West and Stephenson are playing like it's the last year of their contract because it is. Isn't that interesting?

    Is it the coaching staff? Or the players?

    But blaming it all on Hibbert is short sighted.

    I would like to see B Hansbrough shot.

    Laughable.
    Totally, because all the other point guards on the roster have been on a tear.

    I think I really do know what's wrong. We don't get to play the Wizards every game.
