San Antonio has a big 2 and 3 role players in the starting lineup with a sixth man who could start on 90% of the teams in the league rounding out their "big 3". Has our 5 + 1 approach been too hard to maintain and perhaps too rigid? It seems that if we are cold with a couple guys, it makes it that much easier for the opposition to shut us down because they know who to concentrate on (Rip/Webber/CB). I also think it has kept us from realizing Seed's offensive potential as a Piston because of this equal share nonsense. Sure it's great salary wise until you have to start paying all 5+1 the league average or up to 3 times more than the average. Suddenly, you have zero salary depth because 6 guys out of 15 eat up 80% of the payroll.
