Fair enough, but I was just referring to your post regarding Ed... so yeah, I can not single him out if it appeases you. My point was that John Lucas hit some shots that he's not been hitting, LK hit some shots that have not been there.... even DD hit a lot of shots that he's not been hitting. SO the argument that the defensive difference is enough to offset losing an offensive option can be mitigated by perspective.
