Hindsight is 20/20.
We started out trying exactly that, only Mek couldn't even hit an uncontested layup. I think having to chase Diaw and Marion on defense just threw his entire game off kilter.
My biggest thing is he appeared to "give up". It got to where it looked like everything he did or tried to do was half hearted. Letting freaking Skinner block his dunk just topped the evening for him.
Very very disappointed.
