Default What the Nets are Missing....




We need a big who comes of the bench and causes havoc. Powe is 9th on the Celts in minutes, but 2nd on the team in FTA. Let that sink in.....
A player of his type would be a nice change of pace from the more finesse based bigs we have now. The player in the draft that reminds me most of him is Patrick Patterson, but he does not have the latent small forward skills that Powe possesses. This type of player, along with a starting caliber SF, is what the Nets need to go to the next level.

Really? I'm not so sure.

We've already got Devin Harris and Vince Carter - two guys that attempt a tremendous amount of free-throws per game (particularly Devin). In terms of us having guys that can wreak havoc in bursts with their energy and power....well I think we have two that fit that bill almost entirely - Stromile Swift and Sean Williams. It's just a matter of those guys finding consistency and finding their feet a little more in this system. If we were to trade Sean (which has been rumored as you'd all know), I doubt it'd be for a player so similar.

Stromile and Sean are two low BBall IQ guys who do not make plays. Players like Powe, Craig Smith, and Paul Millsap can be counted on to make positive plays. Stro and Sean do not provide the offensive balance that these players would provide coming off of the bench.
