I prefer Stephenson to do most of his damage inside the arc. The main area I see he needs to do better is get to the free throw line more which might not be a issue since he will no longer have West& Hi Bert camped in or around the lane
I make this deal if I'm the cavs. Irving & Lebron will get most of the shots & touches do unless Wiggins is a good spot up shooter he won't see the ball much. Love's game complements those two better& he gives them a presence in the paint
Lance is a triple double threat on a nightly basis, gives us another shot creator, can run the half court pick & roll offense & plays good defense. He has some issues but no one questions whether or not he shows up ready to play
The Hornets are active in free agency, the only players signing contracts are mid level & players who get what they want from their current team. You won't see much happen until the Lebron 3 & Menlo contracts are settled
I might be looking at this the wrong way but it appears to me MJ is starting to find his groove as a NBA exec. Most observers have felt MJ always hired "his friends" & not the best people to run the team. He clearly feels Cho is better suited for many of the basketball operations duties
you have to use both FA & the draft to build a solid team IMO. Indiana is a good example of this by drafting well & signing key free agents when necessary, the key is to not sign contracts that keep you from making moves.
That is true but keep in mind that with a fire zone blitz the DE is occasionally asked to drop in short zone coverage in a 4-3 so it isn't like he hasn't been doing it already.
CJ will drop into coverage at times he might line up on either side of the line or he might slide down & play some 3 tech but he will be chasing the qb most of the time since that is what he does best & what we wrote him the big check for. i think riveria & mcdermott are looking for creative ways to utilize the talent we have & give oppents something else to prepare for more so than switching the defensive philsophy all together.
