Ya know, last night I felt a little deja vu and hating to open old wounds but it seemed a bit like our game 7 loss in 2010. Yup, I also know that losing really helps us get closer to the top 5 ping pong ball teams but as I hate the Lakers, I almost felt like biting off my nose to spite my face as we build a 13 pt lead with 2 min to go 3rd Qtr(same in 2010) and I wanted a victory. I especially wanted it when D'Antoni said they'd come back... a guru he is not but did become prophetic & we became pathetic.
We lost because we could not compete with Gasol and he played limited time too( who schooled us too in 2010) and Kaman( Bynum in 2010) both 7 footers got 32 points. Garnett was really a PF in Game 7 & also had a mediocre game & we needed one or two 3s from Ray Allen & didn't get them at crunch time while Farmar as in 2010 killed us with 3s.
We have been needing a Center since Perkins went down in game 6 and he wasn't a scorer but a good defender but with PP, KG & Allen we didn't need him to score. OK, I'm beating a dead horse here as I'm sure we all know we need a Center & I would try all possible to get Embiid and, if not, Asik. Also, got to get rid of Wallace and won't break my heart to see Bass & Green go too. Keep Sully, Oly and Johnson & draft or trade for 2 more PFs and our Guard situation is fine.
