if you hire LB, we wont see anything different from what we see now except a slowed down offense and LB saying " SLOW IT DOWN" as opposed to Frank yelling: "LETS GO LETS GO LETS GO"
I whole-heartidly agree. This team doesn't have the talent to be great defensively like Larry has done with the Pistons, Sixers or Spurs. They don't have the Rodman, D-Robinson, Mutumbo, Theo Ratliff, Rasheed Wallace, Ben Wallace type of players that impose their will on defensese. Cliff was good for Larry, but not that great for this year.
Secondly, we're not a great half court team. It's pretty much Carter or RJ as our halfcourt and they seem to not have been working together as well. Larry likes to call out his plays before each play and Jason needs to run to be effective, it just won't work out.
Like I said in the main forum. This won't happen. Rod and Larry don't have exactly have a good relationship between them.
