I know the haters and the doubters want to say so badly that our team got worst with the trades we made over the summer, ...but really our team is better.
Ok.. we lost CJ watson, J. Lucas, and K. Korver. Nate Robinson's offense, and K. Hinrich's defense, have completely replaced those players. (K. Hinrich's defense is really on SHUT DOWN mode!!) R. Hamilton is in shape, and looks like he's ready to avg a solid 15ppg. Throw in M. Bellini, whose is finally showing signs of life, then J. Butler who is already filling R. Brewers role defensively, and he has better offensive abilities, and gets to the FT line.
SO WHAT ARE WE MISSING OTHER THAN D. ROSE?!?... nothing.
This team has better guard defense, and defensive energy with K. Hinrich,N.Robinson, T.Gibson & Noah.... more 3 pt range with Rose, Hamilton, Deng, Hinrich, Bellineli, & Radmanovic... more fast breaks Rose, Deng, N. Robinson, Hamilton, Butler, and the same beast rebounding w/ Noah, Boozer Taj
Our biggest loss was Asik defensively... but N. Mohammed is actually pretty damn solid,... and will give you 6-10pts on any given night. Noah is playing out of his mind, and BOOZER is even playing some defense!!!
Throw D. Rose back in the midst of this team, and its F'N PROBLEMS!
