... I couldn't help but be frustrated by our lack of rebounding. IMHO, that was the key to the game. Everything else was a result of that major failing.
The answer was obvious, get Edwards in there....
OK, so I am not serious. What I am seriously questioning is the wisdom of holding onto Edwards when this team needs players that can contribute now if called upon. This team is obviously in their championship window BUT teams around them and Artest has seen fit to squeeze us back.
Having players like Edwards, and I might as well say it... Bender... are part of the problem. ...Not part of the solution. It doesn't matter how much 'potential' Bender has if he can't stay healthy nor does it matter a whole lot if he really has no place on the team where we need him. Worse, Edwards doesn't even really have potential.
IMHO we don't have the luxury of 'waiting'. I think we are in a similar position to Detroit last year at this time when it was clear they were playing for something less than the championship (They were not going to beat the Pacers) UNLESS they made a move. They would be close but no cigar. They made that move.
JO is on a roll and IMHO you take advantage of that now and not assume we have lots of time to let the pieces fall into place. We seemingly have a focused team but IMHO we are lacking the tools to get to the championship round much less win it unless the brass get active.
