I mean Turner had 2 pts and 1 rb in 10mins and Lopez/Plumlee combined for 0 pts and 0 rebs in 6mins of play. That means over half the game was played with 6'7 or 6'8 Brown and Barnes at center vs the Stifle Tower who played 34 mins with 21pts and 16rbs.
It's 100% no big men. Prove me wrong.
Why can Australia get away with a big rotation of Baynes/ Bogut/ Landale? Is that not comparable to Turner/ Lopez/ Plumlee?
System and coaching. I don't think anyone before this tournament would've entertained that Baynes and Bogut were in the same stratosphere as Turner and Lopez. Now they're trash low quality big men? Turner lead the lead in blocks... and now he's not good enough to be on the court with Gobert? Something isn't clicking for you guys.
Turner is an average player. Lots of teams here have better centers than him, in terms of skills and what they can do on offense. Lopez is one of the the softest bigs on the planet. This style of play is too physical for him. If he can't make 3s, he's pretty much a totally useless player. I don't think he's shooting that well at all. Plumlee.......I'm not even sure where to begin, but I really doubt if he could even make the rotations of the other good teams in the tournament.
