Changing rosters may be necessary, but changing rosters does not mean for the better (unless you're trading pau gasol for kwame brown). It's pretty damn hard to find guys who are "proven" under pressure (hell, even gasol never won a playoff game in memphis). In any case, changes & "unproven in pressure" can only be looked upon in retrospect (unless it's THAT obvious).
not quite. blake griffin has yet to play an official NBA game. Baron Davis fades in and out (with questionable shot selection) and Kaman is good but not great (not a dominant post presence at all). And their head coach is...who? The current clippers don't offer anything better than cleveland can outside of being in a better city (but the fanbase may not be much better either).Originally Posted by ken cheng
In contrast, chicago has a lot more to offer him in terms of talent. But rose is just as ball dominant as he is...so one of them will have to learn to play off the ball more.
