I think the biggest thing right now is chemistry and player roles. I like g.hill always supported him, but I can honestly say he is done as a pacer. We will trade him in the off-season to keep lance. I would like to see major lineup changes for this remaining games and playoffs. Starting lineup should be lance at point, PG at 2, cope at 3, west at pf and hibbert at c. I know what you guys thinking this guy is just mad or stupid. But listen me out. First of all I truely believe lance can be a pure point guard if we develop him. Because lance loves to pass the ball and get every one involved. Mostly his game is about driving for layups or finding open man. This will greatly help our team in terms of passing and everyone getting the ball.
Now you might be thinking why the hell would you have Copeland in starting lineup. Can I remind you guys how good he was with Knicks last year. Plus I believe his shooting and effort offset his defense. Because everytime he played as Pacer all I see is him trying hard. This will help our floor spreading immensely it would help west and hibbert more space to work in the post. I am not saying play Copeland 40 min a game but have him as starter play him 25-30 min a game.
Now for the bench I would like hill to prove me right. I always believed the reason he is not aggressive is because rest of the starters need so many touches and ball in thier hands. But now he will the first person off the bench and be our true sixth man. Whose main purpose would be to score first pass second. Scola and et being second options. Unless Vogel makes these changes or any changes I lost hope in this team really. I hate to blame it on et or anyone person, this is a whole team effort and unless every one comes together we are done probably even in first round.
