Losing Fox is a setback. He is a great leader and sets the tone defensively. Also, in a way he gets to the heads of oppponents and can be considered our basketball version of an ENFORCER in hockey. Fox is the INTIMIDATOR. So losing him hurts our cause.
However, we just can't dwell on the negative. Lets look at the positive side of this misfortune.
1. Geroge will finally step up. He has more energy than Fox and when he guarded Peja in the last game we played against the queens, George's athletic prowess messed up Peja's shooting.
2. Kobe and Shaq will just dominate more on both sides of the court.
3. With the loss of Fox, everyone's intensity will just be greater. And from the look of things so far in the first round, we need as much intensity as we can get.
4. This will give B. Shaw more playing time. Another ball handler on the court helps a lot. The Wolves are killing us on the full court press.
So I guess Quat-Row is for Chick and Foxy, now!!!!
