If Ben didn't **** the bed as hard...people would be on him a lot harder. He missed point blank layups like multiple times...and while Ben didn't score in the 4th...Tobias had a 4 point GAME. Can't do that and be the highest paid guy.
Tobias' issue is that he likes to operate not only in the same space as Jo...but the same way...and because he doesn't get to the line...thats not exactly viable. Jo's slow moving face up jumpers work in part because he's huge, and will get to the line. Tobias its a made shot or a long wasted possesion. Also as much as Jo panic passes....he at least makes the pass..Tobias has the woat vision lol.
Its why Tobias tends to have his best games without Jo...because they take up the same space...so yeah even with a Ben trade...Tobi/Jo isn't the greatest duo as one of them need to space out their games more. Tobias simply needs to become a more willing 3pt shooter ala Middleton who also was a mid range man of action..part of the Bucks winning it was him being willing and able to just take and make big 3s (and Jrue too) which allowed Giannis to roam and wreck havoc
Basically **** need to get out of their comfort zones goddam it
Problem is Tobias needs to dribble to get in rhythm for his shot, he's not a natural catch and shoot guy.
Morey obviously cannot upgrade him or it would've been done already. It could be that every other team has Tobias as negative value in which case they're stuck.
I think it bears repeating that if they cannot make any meaningful upgrades then they should strive to get younger with more future flexibility. They aren't winning as is. One step back for two steps forward might be the only avenue available, regardless of how distasteful it is to management.
