yeah, but not all centres are built like howard, there's maybe 6-7 of them who are enough of an offensive threat to worth worrying about. And between alabi, gray, Bargnani
and amir, there should be enough fouls to go through 48 minutes without overusing any of our players and without having to resort to davis.
it really depends if alabi is now a rotation-level player or better, like some suggested. Personally, I highly doubt it since he was so bad last season, but who knows. He definitely has the weight to hold the post, but can he do anything else other than that ...?
