In hindsight, trading our only quality big (Olynyk) for Oladipo wasn't a good idea. It was a gamble that blew up Riley's

Playing small only works if your smallball 4 hits 43% of his Threes and is thick bodied-enough to take the hits against Giannis

It's not small ball if your 4 is 6'11 240 lbs.

In hindsight we still looked like shiet with Kelly.

KO wasn’t going to get any minutes from Spo. Nothing blew up in anyones face. Traded a non-factor for another non-factor.

Kelly was launching threes from the logo like Lillard. I love the man, but he was buggin out towards the end of his time here.

Last season was a huge failure in-terms of roster building by the FO. They took 2 steps back instead by being extremely conservative..

Your playing small ball if your 6'11 player doesn't play to his size. Olynyk height is irrelevant.

Then we were playing miniature ball vs the Bucks because we didn't have anyone playing bigger than Muggsy Bogues. :lol:

Olynyk is the center and bam's at the 4. Think bam's actual height is only 6'9".

If Pat Riley thinks he can put a garbage small forward at the 4 spot alongside Bam and have team success, he's crazy. We got a glimpse of that with Harkless

I was referring to ariza.

And I've always viewed Olynyk as the center and Bam as the PF when they are together.
