Simple question, answers could be complex though. Some will sound like a broken record but ALL I WANT IS A PLAYOFF SERIES!
-Smoove needs to be moved to starting PF so he is moved inside of the 3 point line. 77% on inside shots last year. We need to get him back where he's comfortable.
-Trade Monroe to a team who really needs him. With Smoove, we have 2 starting quality PFs. I prefer Smoove's defensive ability seeing as Monroe lacks any at all.
-Acquire more athleticism and shooting from another good wing player (trade of Monroe). We need someone to help Jennings, Stuckey, Singler, and KCP. A true SF.
-Beat the bottom feeders..This should be obvious but we falter against teams that should be beaten. We need to establish an identity and play with some attitude. Smoove and Jennings need to play with more emotion.
-Better game planning. No excuse for our blowout loses.
Teams we should worry about, NOT in top 8:
Boston -- 1 game back from us, tied with Brooklyn in 9th but will see Rondo back soon.
Brooklyn -- 1 game back from us, veteran leadership, players that can make wins happen
New York -- 2.5 games back from us, unpredictable team with 54 wins last year
Cavs -- 3 games back from us, Luol Deng will make them better
