In watching the NBA and our hometown team the last few months; I have come to the conclusion that "Size Does Matter". I am not necessarily talking about having a 7'-0", 300 pound center. I am talking about being bigger then the opposition at "any" position. We are small at pretty much every position except point guard where you want to be smaller and quicker. Rip has to rely on constant movement to "wear" his opponent out. He is not big enough to back his man down to the block and score through him. Tay is too soft and has to rely on his length but is easily bumped out of position. Dice and Sheed have the height but am not sure they have the strength of their opponents. Then when you take into account they shoot a lot of jump shots and fade-aways; they play smaller then they are. When it comes to the bench; Max has the weight but not the height and AJ is a little light in the pants still. I think the only player we have right now that has size for his position is Spellcheck; he just doesn't have the offensive skills yet. When you look around the league and see the "mass" of the players and then look at our roster; we look like a bunch of tooth picks running around. It just dawned on me a couple of days ago that we have a roster of "light" players. When the game slows down in the play offs and you have to pound the ball in the hoop; we have lighter hammers in the toolbox then our competition. Hopefully it isn't an issue.
