^ Jamison is supposed to be that guy, and has shown in some games to do so. He just hasn't done so consistently enough, on the road I guess. Antawn also can't create for himself, so it's between him and Blake to carry the bench, which is not really ideal.
Ideally, we need a creator off the bench a la Jamal Crawford, JR Smith, Aaron Brooks..those type of players who can find the basket without needing to be assisted. Yes, they may be "chuckers", but they are productive bench guys. Pau CAN be that guy. Does he want to? According to his comments this year, I don't think so.
This year has been a big learning experience for everyone. Pau has a lot of pride, but in order for this team to succeed, he's going to have to swallow that pride or transfer that pride to lead the bench a la Ginobili. If Pau can buy into that role, I think we have a fine chance at succeeding in the post season. Offensively, I think he should finish games. Nash, Kobe, Metta, Pau, Dwight. Defensively, Blake, Kobe, Metta, Earl, Howard.
