Last year, our nine-man rotation was healthy until Perk went down in Game 6, and they all knew their defensive roles and assignments. We're relying heavily on cast-offs. As decent as Krstic has been, every time I see him or Baby with more shots than any of Big 4, I cringe.
We ran out of gas last season, I think. And our biggest weakness - rebounding - persists.
Miami or Chicago would be tougher than any team we played last year. Having to play them both would be too exhausting, I think.
FWIW, I like Dallas out West and they have been killing me lately, too.
I don't know how to put in a friend request to you, but when I do figure it out, I'll do it. Also, maybe someone should start a NBA thread...
