Andrea is not a center, but had been forced to play it his whole career. I know I would much rather see Andrea in the game rather than a player like Ed Davis and Amir who lack offensively. Team defence is essential, as we have learned over the last couple game the difference it can make. We weren't playing great defence because of one specific player, it was the players making the proper rotations and making difficult shots for the opposition.

This is insane. I think Casey needs to integrate more of a post up offensive game for Andrea. Take him away from the three point line, and run pick and roles instead of pick and pops. Leave the three point shooting to the guards, and let Andrea can to work. I believe he can easily score 20-25 points in the post a game. If someone like Varejo can do what he did last night on offence, than Andrea can do twice as much damage.

Don't hate. Appreciate.
Well said +1
