If our guards can hit him on the roll and get to the basket, then they are going to have to do something, and they can’t really leave KP. So that hard rolling will be critical for us to do.’’
Except they CAN leave KP KNOWING GOOD AND WELL THAT HE IS NEVER GONNA PASS IT! TO ANYONE!
Theoretically...we need a tough guy next to KP who can score some but more importantly...defend and pass well...NOT a black hole of a turnstile.
If Kyle was not so inconsistent or Noah such a bad offensive player...they would be the better fit. If Billy could defend he would be perfect too. Kanter is not the right guy IMO. Everything stops once he gets the ball. Bench player on this team.
Kanter does require more defensive attention than any of those other guys though.
I'm not thrilled about it, but I'll just grab a drink, and enjoy the tank.
