The key for Ed I think other than say an Eddie Curry is that he's quick enough to keep up with the pace of the modern game on both ends of the court. I think the 4 that spreads the floor is eventually gonna end up like the wildcat offense in the NFL, and will still be implemented from time-to-time to give teams random different looks but eventually teams will get back-to-basics from their bigs. I think the way we've played recently going back-to-basics vs. how we play with Andrea is a perfect example of why. It just works better in lieu of transcendent talent.
