Look at Dirk, I know you guys hate the comparison, but in Dallas he's always only had to worry about the offense. They have surrounded him with guys like Eric Dampier (in the past), Tyson Chandler, etc.. So he doesn't have to be in charge of guarding the other teams arguably most aggressive player on the boards. Dirk isn't a good defender, but you don't see him taking heat because he has a big backing him up, guarding the paint.

I think if BC finds a center and moves Andrea the the PF spot we will se a big improvement in the way this team works.
I agree. If only that Chandler for Jose trade actually happened I don't know how Davis and Amir fit into this but if Andrea is here next season I really think it needs to be at the 4 with a big 'traditional' center playing beside him.
