Jermaine O'Neal came in here as a huge risk at best. we all knew that one fall or little tweak of that knee would set him back months if not years and that has happened. he is weak offensively most nights and the games he has scored big most are 15 - 20 foot shots which is NOT where you want your Center scoring from or setting up on offense. Trade JO, put AB at center where he really seems to fit nicely with Hump and Jake <way> behind him. Start Marion at SF with Joey behind him <that sounds good already> and use JK and AP beside Jose and Roko with Jamario playing 2 or 3 depending on the matchup, this deal would be a huge upgrade with little effect on us offensively which is not really our problem. Marion is a tough wing defender and needs a guy like Jose to make his offensive skill set work. DO BC, this team is going no where fast and the experiment is a failure.
