I know he's not good on defence, but I think getting rid of him right now will be a bad idea, especially if we just want to try and get defence, because he is our leading scorer, and spreads the floor the most on offense. Who else calls for double teams on this team?
Derozan. ANd there are things called screens and cuts that can be used to get open shots - you know - making use of all five guys on the court.

Andrea is nowhere close to being Dirk. Dirk can handle playing positionally and take on quicker power forwards. Andrea gets blown by and tends not to recognize where he should be. He really has no natural position on the defensive end.

He's our leading scorer? So was Mike James. How on earth were they able to replace that guy?
