Did we not learn that at the 3 you need players that can defend ?
Lal - Artest
Bos - Pierce / T. Allen
Cle - James
Orlando - Barnes / Pietrus
Phx - Hill / Dudley
Dal - Marion / Butler
OKC - Durant
In last years final 4 all 4 teams had SF's that were above average defensively. So wouldnt the formula be to i dont know, sign some SF's that can defend ?
Why sign Kleiza to a 4 year deal ??
Even Phx had some wings who were very good defenders. who are we to think that we can win w/o a 3 that can play even just average D.
If we didnt sign Kleiza, wouldnt we have been able to sign Barnes ?
