I don't recall him playing PF. Anywhom, what I am really preaching is that if we did get rid of Andrea, we would need someone in the post to become a threat, or else we'll have no post threats. Even in the case of Boston, KG can score and spread the defence, and Perkins had somewhat of a post game. I know everyone wants this defensive monster as center, but if he's only defensive, then we'll be in the same boat.
As train said above, I don't agree with Demar being able to draw double teams, yet. They know what he can do, and they'll collapse on him when he gets in the paint. Andrea on the other hand would get doubled when he touched the ball in the post. You can say we'll play better ball without Andrea, but were not Denver, most of our role players would ride the bench on contending teams.
