In Response to It Doesn't Matter Now
[QUOTE]Everyone might as well get over it. Done, happened. Might as well get on board and look for positives with our new guys. I liked Perk as much as most here, but he did nearly as many bad as good things. Illegal picks, dumb fouls. No offense at all, bad free throw shooter, taking a rebound down to his knees to wind up, only to get stuffed. If Kristic can give us half of Perk on the defensive end, he will make up for it on the offensive end. KG won't let our defense drag. Count on it. Did we play well without Perk this year?

I read things like the Cs don't need to score more because they have more than enough scoring.....
79 - that is the number of points they scored in game 7 when the Lakers played suffocating defense.
Give me Murphy, Shaq, Davis, and Krstic - all of whom are better offensive players than Perk - and the Cs will not lose anything on the offensive.
To me the joke is that there was talk about how the Lakers length hurt the Cs in the finals - was it really the Lakers length where Bynum pretty much did not play after game 1? Or was it the Cs complete inability to get anything from their point guard and their center at the offensive end?
Rondo broke the all time free throw percentage and Perk was a complete non factor as usual at the offensive end.
This year so far two thirds of the teams in the league score more points and they had the second leading defense WITHOUT PERK.
Quite often the Cs lose games by not scoring more than 90 points and then talk about how their defense did not step up and how their defense drives their offense - really?
How about having a couple of guys that are not huge, gigantic liabilities at the offensive end who cannot shoot, cannot make free throws, avoid shooting, thing they are great players but when all is said and done are bit players (as I have always opined)?
Go back and look at the trades and I posit that Perk was not even one of the 10 best players traded over the last few days:
'melo, D Will, Billups, Brooks, Mayo, Davis, Green, Wallace, Mo Williams, Devin Harris, Favors, and a bunch of others.......
