Two things missing.
1) Perimeter D. You don't have to be "big" if you can really pressure the perimeter. Lee, Terry and Barbosa have all been disappointments on defense.
2) Interior defense / rebounding. Lack of size / toughness is highlighted by poor perimeter defense. C's have no one to cover perimeter mistakes and the rotations are abysmal.
*** The hope is that Bradley will help with perimeter defense. I'm not sure he will be enough by himself to right this ship.
I'm going to add a third problem and that is Doc's coaching and game management. He has a lot of new toys but is having them play like they are the same (type of) players that he has had in the past. He has not changed to accomodate the new guys. He's really struggling and doing his worst job coaching since being in Boston.
