please no D'Antoni. That would make no sense. They might as well keep Andrea if they are going to get the moustache.

Also - Boozer is just much easier to hide than Andrea. As weak as he might be, particularly with man defense, he is able to fit within a defensive system. We've yet to see that with Andrea unless the matchups are just right and he's really got his head on straight. I could see a team that included Andrea winning enough games off the lesser teams to get an 8th seed easily enough, but that would pretty much be the ceiling unless Bargnani suddenly becomes a consistent performer and a D'Antoni-type offense really took off somehow. That would be lightning in a bottle, and would still have it's own limitations in the long run.
