I wanted Hollins this past offseason. I do not know if he was solely responsible for their defense , but Memphis D was always and still is a pain in the arse.
I think we have to get more defenders on the Clippers in exchange for guys like Dudley Bullock Green etc. We have enough offense. I saw we keep Jamal and let DC go. I honestly think yes DC was great and I love him , but I do not think he could be of any more value if he is playing alongside Jamal. One of them have to go. They never played well together because they were both ball dominant or needed the ball to make something happen.
I never watched much of Pierce so I don't know how he is defensively. I know at 36 he was still a better player than Dudley. I think a West and Jamal backcourt could do wonders. Do We Keep Barnes? I think we need him. Do we play Pierce at the 4? Or Granger? And sign a backup big.
Preferably my team.
I mean that is not a bad team. Defense is what wins Championships and honestly we didn't have enough if it this year. Westbrook was strolling around screen and getting right to the rim because Big Baby could stay with him. I doubt Hill would be able to. Man its tough. We need Agilty and Strength and Defense.
I'm all for Shumpert and West backcourt. If Jamal's stock is high, i wouldn't want to because I love the guy so much , but we might have to package him with Dudley to make it easier for another team to take on that dead weight of Dudley
