Why. Why. Why. Why. Why.

Why does this team always look into the undersized big men?

I cant take it any longer!

Because you can actually get undersized big men who know how to play basketball.  Big men who aren't undersized, and know how to play basketball are rarely available, and almost never available if you aren't willing to pay a REALLY high price.

I say pay the price. The last time we had a legit healthy big man we won a championship. Since then with the Undersized big by committee, our inside presence has been lacking greatly.

Just out of curiosity, what do you think the price is?

We don't have anything to pay the price with.

Rondo, pre-acl injury, in all likelyhood if we're talking about someone who's good. Right now, maybe Pierce could land one in a three-way deal cooked together.

Otherwise we're not getting a good big man with size for anything else we have to offer. First round picks and Bass isn't getting an upgrade.

I like Blair, but this would be defined as enabling Doc Rivers. He would now have a 6'7 guy he can play at center for long stretches. Don't do it Danny!

Right.  There is a chance you could get a guy like Gortat by sending Bradley and filler.  But no matter what, you are going to be gutting a major part of the team to get a big man like that.

Now, I think that is something the C's should be pursuing in the offseason, as part of a rebuild/reload, but right now, they just don't have the pieces to spare.

For the record, I would love to bring in Blair, depending on the price.  I think he is very solid big man, and could really help this team the way Sully did.  He is not a cure-all, but when you have so few real assets that you can afford to give up, you can't really pick and choose.

A 6-7 "center" who's averaging 4 rebounds a game?

No, thanks.

Minutes played matter. He's getting 13.7 MPG for the Spurs. That's 10 Reb per 36, he has a higher rebound rate than KG.

Yeah, he is an excellent rebounder.  He is just caught in a numbers game in San Antonio. 

Put him on the C's, and he would be their 3rd or 2nd best big man immediately.

Yeah rebounding isn't his issue, its defense.

Yeah.  He is basically Brandon Bass defensively (OK, that may even be generous).  But still, he is a useful player.
