This is just a thought that I have had for the last few days, and the more I think about it, the more it feels right.
I know we don't have a star **** player on the roster and we all agree that the roster is full of middling players and taleny, which was the intention of the FO until they find a superstar, create a whole team competitive enough to be in the playoffs and a superstar would get them over the hump.
When I look at the starting five I see one glaring flaw.
The starting five consists of
Goran Dragic (PG) - Above Average Point Guard, wherein he stands amongst the top 20 PG's in the league.
Gortat (C) - Again above avg. CENTER, easily amongst the top 15 in the league today and this is overly cautious, he could also be in the top 10.
Luis Scola (PF) - Should be maybe amongst the top 30, but some might feel that is a stretch.
Dudley (SF) - Again Top 20 @ his position.
Brown (SG) - And this is our biggest flaw / weakness. As a SG he may not even crack the TOP 50 SG's in the leaue. This team was made to compete only if it has no weak links and I see a weak link in BROWN. I do believe that was also the reason they were willing to pay GORDON.
I do believe that the team could turn it's fortunes with the acquisition of an AVG/Above Avg. SG. No offense to his commitment to the game, he is just too single minded in his dedication to score without defending/passing.
Any suggestions ???
