Default Addition by Subtraction

On your team, is there a player that if cut the team would actually be better than before?

no... not really.


Most would say Jason Collins, but Collins does bring enough positives that it would be subtraction by subtraction (though by a tiny, microscopic amount)

Probably Cookie, just because without him, Vlad would get all of his minutes, and Vlad is just a smarter, more skilled, harder working version of Cook. Ronny, Vlad, and Odom (on occasion) split the minutes at PF, and the team is better for it.

If we could convince Darius Miles to be bought out.

Subtracting Zach Randolph was addition by subtraction as well.

Yes, on my team, to get better I would cut:

Eddy Curry
Zach Randolph
Stephon Marbury
Jamal Crawford
Quentin Richardson
Nate Robinson
David Lee
Renaldo Balkman
Malik Rose
Jared Jeffries
Mardy Collins


But I would keep Jerome James. That guys goin places.

Cook isnt really playing now anyway though.

I'd say Kwame comes close. If the other team doesn't have a bigman scorer that needs to be defended well, his being on the floor gives them an advantage. Not to say its not an advantage for them when they do, though.

Okay but almost every team has a skilled big. If you cut Kwame, Bynum gets 30+ mins a game. He isn't ready for that yet. Kwame ain't close to being an addition by subtraction. I'd say Cook.

Kwame's needed for the Duncans, Yao's, KG's, and Dirk's. If the big isnt an allstar, benching him and playing someone else like Bynum or Mihm is well worth the D dropoff. Well.

Funny thing is they could cut 1 of Curry or Randolph(probably Randolph), Marbury, and Robinson and not be any worse.

Default Re: Addition by Subtraction

there really are no players on the Mavs i want flat out gone unless there is a clear upgrade waiting in the wings. Most Mavs fans would probably say Mo Ager but I think the last two games he has shown enough to at least be a low rotation player in the L. I personally can't stand Devin George and want him gone but with the emergence of Brandon Bass this year I really can't see him getting all that much burn so its ok to have him as a 11th or so player on thebench.

Eh, the 10 minutes he is on the floor are just 10 minutes that Ronny and Vlady could be sharing between themselves, and doing a better job as well.

I don't like cutting Kwame, because while I agree with you on the fact that he does hurt the team on offense, we do need him against the majority of the top tier teams in the league.
