I disagree. West can also score with a true point guard to pick and pop with. See CP3
I think Granger would be even more deadly with a better passing PG. We don't need to have the fastest pace.
He does provide help defense on players running into screens. He tries to keep up with the guard. He is just not quick enough in order back to his man if the guard decides to pass.
But he is not to blame for Redick and Korver torching us from the arc. He's not the one that is supposed to chase them around screens..
I disagree. For a part he is to blame. Redick runs around a screen from Davis. Hibbert is involved. Not as much, but he is. If Hibbert has to defend a stronger big in the paint, isn't it also our wings fault if they don't help out?
Imagine if they would be as slow as Hibbert.

Also, not all great players have big egos. Duncan does not have an ego. And he seems to be quite friendly with Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.
That's how I want my players to be. They should aspire to act like Duncan. Not like Kobe.
Just my opinion, of course.
Agree to a certain degree. Do I want them to be modest and very friendly? Yes, but they don't have to be that.
I could very much live with guys like Kobe, Garnett, Rondo on my team. Their actions don't repel me.
Artest throwing elbows, Griffin flopping and diving, players like Cousins, Josh Smith and Love complaining about others in stead of looking at themselves first, those are the things that repel me.
To each his own. Although you did make me realize that a big ego has more room to bounce around in a bigger city. I do like players like Rondo, but maybe they are not well suited for small market teams. Maybe that's why Love, Cousins and Josh Smith are complaining so much
