Trade the two ole's.
bargnani's been playing good d lately, it's really just been jose. As much as I love manuel, he shouldn't be put to defend starters at the end of the fourth. ROSS, the rookie we signed for defence and shooting at a wing spot, should be playing ffs!

Eh, Bargnani hasn't played good D at all this season. His D goes from awful to subpar from time to time. I think from a defensive standpoint, Calderon is far worse than Bargs. Calderon is just clueless all around and slow-footed while Bargnani is just clueless on team D.

It's been pointed out many times, putting them together is a recipe for disaster because the only way to "cover up" for Calderon is good team defense.

When you have one guy on the perimeter and another player inside playing subpar D it kills everyone and it puts a lot of pressure on Valanciunas.

We had a much worse team two years ago and had no problems scoring
Our offense is very static and the main responsible guy is Casey
We don't lose on D, we lose because we can't score when defenses tighten.our half court offense is beyond awful
