Carter torched Dunleavy in the Orlando game. If Dunleavy didn't leave Carter wide open from the 3 pt line, he halfheartedly waved his hand to Carter as if saluting him (not actually defending the shot.) As if just realizing Dunleavy is a poor defender, Obrien benched him for the Houston game, and let Rush have the starting spot, when Rush won't even be allowed to play in the first five games. Why not give the spot to someone who will actually play the first five games?
Granger's defense in the Houston game looked terrible. On the break, after the other team steals the ball, Granger doesn't bother to put a hand up when the opponent gets near the basket...he just jogs alongside the opponent
as if he wants to see firsthand what the shot attempt will look like, and putting his hand up will impede his vision of the ball hitting the bottom of the net..
And Collison? What we were all afraid of, looks ALOT like TJ Ford out there. In fact, in order to win, in OBrien's "system" we're better off with AJ Price in the starting spot. Price shoots better, plays better defense, and is more oriented for the "hand-off-and wait for it to come-back" approach.
