The reason he's a good defensive rebounder is he rarely leaves the paint. The opponents guard and center can run a pick and give the guard a wide open 3 point shot. If Vuc steps up a little the guard can blow by him.drsd wrote:MagicFan101 wrote:“Without Vuc, Orlando would be the Hawks”
You must mean in terms of a serious injury where we are still stuck with his salary? But this misses the point of the conversation — as usual.
Vuc makes quite a bit of money; nothing absurd but it is a good bit. Vuc is a solid contributor who helps us win but he is not irreplaceable at that amount of $$. We can find another contributor.
Nope. What I mean is that Vučević is the anchor core of defensive rebounding and team defense. He fails eye tests, but statistically, Vučević is a very good two-way player in the NBA. His value divided by salary is very good by league standards.
Mo is only slightly better than Vuc guarding the perimeter, that's why I think player like Isaac might be our best option.
The blueprint to beat the Celtics with Walker or the Raptors is Isaac at center.
