    I think we all realize there may be spacing issues. Just need to see how it goes and what the coaching staff does with their pieces before I get worried about it.

    Other teams are going to have their own spacing issues on offense against us, since they won't be able to drive and since our guards will cheat out on their shooters. Maybe those issues are worse than ours?

    What the 'H' is wrong with dunking a lot???
    It's the highest percentage shot in basketball you jackass!

    I already resented these guys for stealing my BDL name (I had mine two years before you jerks dammit!) but I'm surprised at Dwyer just phoning in his blog like this.
    These guys usually have good takes.
    This was not one of them.

    I agree. Dunking is where it's at. It's so effective that it was once banned.

    If only Drummond could rebound or steal balls from guards or something besides "just dunk"

    And go coast to coast for a Glen Rice-esque breakaway three pointer? nope, slam it home big man.

    Or even just snag over 10 rebounds per game. Is that too much to ask?

    If Drummond dunked defensively would that make him better?

    I know that he was talking about offensive, but the way he structured the sentence and put "offensively" right at the end in a very awkward spot tells me his motive was to really sell Drummond as having low impact, offensively. I almost thought it was a pun that his game is so novice that it was offensive the word placement was so odd.

    I found it funny too since it was clumsy in its original intent.

    I would argue that offensive rebounds and steals that he takes coast to coast for baskets are offensive anyways :P
