I disliked the whole emphasis on offense that came from the top since the summer. Everything is ass backwards once again.

Here's an interesting number. In wins Bargnani averages 27 minutes. In losses, aside from today where it was scrub time ridiculously early, he averages 37. Even today you could see the results as the two quarters that filled his playing time were the two quarters where once again 30 points were given up. The pushing of the pace particularly makes zero sense the way this team is constructed with Bargnani as something of a centerpiece. It just magnifies the weaknesses, and highlights the problematic hybrid nature that Claudius alluded to.

But there is still some clarity gained through all this. I'm just not sure this team, and their 800,000 data inputs from overhead cameras is going to glean anything, or make anything but cosmetic shifts. Until there is change at the very top.
