Let Kemba walk

I don't see how that makes a difference. San Antonio has a great offense to go with their great defense and Miami has two future HOF'ers. 

 

The Bobcats are a one-dimensional defensive team, they can begin to fix that problem by going all in on Carmelo Anthony.

yeah i never said you didnt need both, but offense is not much more important than defense, or else the knicks would be in the playoffs

The Knicks were middle of the pack in offensive efficiency and very poor defensively... Not a recipe for success. You can make the playoff with one or the other being top notch but if both are average then you're in trouble (unless your Atlanta playing in the shitty eastern conference).

We need to find a median. I know this is a pipe dream but a line-up of Walker, Henderson, MKG, Melo, and Jefferson could work.

Indiana is tied in their series, that's hardly "brink of elimination." The fact that they're falling apart has nothing to do with their defense, but chemistry overall.

I won't say one aspect - offense or defense - is more important than the other, but I disagree that Miami's offense alone is the reason we lost. Their DEFENSE took away Kemba's passing lanes, cutting off Al in the second half and reducing Kemba's effectiveness, which forced other guys to make plays.

We didn't get blown out, we held them under 100. Sure, the fact that we couldn't keep up offensively hurts us, but that didn't keep us out of the first two games. When they really turned it on defensively, we just had no answer. The fact that our third scoring option has been invisible certainly doesn't help matters.

You pretty much just proved my point.

Miami's defense caused us to struggle meaning we couldn't keep up with them, so what does that mean?

WE NEED OFFENSIVE HELP!!!

I see Big Al (maybe Kemba?) being hated on for defense by SuperJ in this thread. In the "FA wanting to come here thread", he bitches about not getting Harden (and Lillard somehow?). Have you seen James Harden EVER play defense? Lulz.

Hell Naw, lol

Oh definitely. I just don't agree with one area being more important than another.

We absolutely need another scorer that's a legitimate three-point threat.

Good offense is better than a good defense, that's why Charlotte, Chicago, and Indiana are on the brink of elimination.

We need a scorer, Curry can score.

 

Exactly - the Cats need a pure scorer to make teams think twice about shutting down Al down low. A big, defensive minded 4 a la Horace Grant or will help clog up some of those driving/passing/backdoor lanes. I thought maybe McRoberts could be that guy, but I was wrong.
