Yeap. Greivis Vasquez is the least of the problems this team. It's you who were spoiled with CP3. How can a team that doesn't have SF and C be competitive?
Ryan Anderson? Center? Are you kidding me? And you say that Vasquez's 17 assists are fool's gold when he has to pass the ball to Rivers, Aminu, Lopez, Thomas, Henry, Mason and other weak players, is not it? For to me, his 17 assists are a great achievement. He isn't an elite PG. But he plays alongside several players so bad... Just you look at our campaign. After you said that Ryan Anderson is a center, I should have stopped with you. But okay... I'll just say one more thing: while Aminu is our SF and Lopez is our C, we will continue as we are. In other words, losing every games.
Vasquez is ranked 41st in the NBA in PER for all PG's.. We have three C's that are better than he is. Lopez is rated as the 13th most C by ESPN. Davis and Anderson would both be in the top 9 if ESPN listed them as C's, and are both in the top 10 as PF's. A much stronger position in the NBA. How about you actually watch some basketball? Vazquez might be getting a lot of assists but it's no mystery that he had a career high on a night when the Hornets were actually hitting their jumpshots. Like someone said earlier, fools gold. He generates low-medium quality looks for our other wings and only generates shots at the rim as about 20% of his assists to our bigs. He's too slow to do anything else. While he might be a solid backup he's just not athletic enough to be anything more. The Clippers have three PG;s that are better than him for christs sake. However, Rivers might be a solid PG in a year or so so I would definitely say SF is our position of greatest need. All we really need is a wing stopper who can drain three's and we're good to go. How you could say C is one of our week positions on a team that has 4 players who can play 15 a night each and play with above average efficiency actually hurts my brain.
