Obviously PJ had success but we could already see Pau decline with Bynum emergence, I just dont think this pound them in the paint style works anymore and especially with Antoni who doesn't know how to play that type of style to begin with.
You're right. In fact, 2 star post players has never really worked in the NBA. When we won our last two chips, Bynum averaged 6.3 points and then 8.6 points in the playoffs, respectively.
It was Gasol down low, Odom on the wing, and Bynum on the bench that worked. So why do we keep forcing it???
Other than the Spurs' asterisk year in '99, I can't find any other instance where it has worked.
If we can't get Smoove, I hear Dragic wants out, and PHX doesn't like his contract. Give me Dragic and Gortat! Gortat would finally give us one person who can truly play with Steve Nash other than Robert Sacre. Plus, he can wear his coveted #13 jersey again.
Too bad PHX doesn't want to lose their lottery pick, but this draft sucks, and we can always throw in our 2017 pick.
edit: Scratch that, Chambs retired his #13.
