Relax people


We are one game into the season. A game which wasn't perfect but which we won easily in the end by a) halftime adjustment and b) 4th quarter dominance. Both are new sensation for our clips.

A few people are already in panic mode. I don't get why. Let's see how this plays out. I don't see anyone avaible that would strengthen our squad for the moment without disrupting this squad.

Ariza: why would NOLA trade Ariza for Mo? Ariza's contract is marginally worse then Mo's. And Mo isn't really a building block for the future for NO. Plus who would score from the bench? You could demote Butler to the bench but how would he take that? Would we risk disrupting our fragile chemistry to make Ariza fit? He is not that good. And Ariza coming from the bench makes me cringe.

Bogans: same thing there: Bogans would only make sense if you played him with our starters. But I'm guessing Billups would be livid.

My conclusion: we have to roll with this team for the foreseeable future. Perhaps we can adres soem of the weak points later on, but it is a bit early to begin planning for match-up problems without first assessing what this squad can or can't do.
