This small ball gimmick won't cut it for the whole season. For short periods throughout - yes...but not 24/7. Better try to develop Anthony or get some one else with size first rather than trolling around for a point guard.

That ain't no gimmick, that is just reality. We are short and the only long guy (Blount) is surfing e-Bay trying to buy a rebound.

Teams are not going to give us a half-decent big without demanding something of more value in return. This is the NBA, nobody is giving nothing for free, unless the names are Paul Gasol and LA Lakers.

We just got to take our lumps and let the rookies continue to learn. Trial by fire, if you will.
