    In whose place does he start for the Heat of the Spurs?
    I wasn't thinking of anyone specifically, just more of an general statement that Sap could start/be a better player on a team with top talent. I mostly agree with you that he's not starter materia and it's something I've been a supporter of for most of his career, that being he should come off the bench. However, I think it can be argued that someone like Sap could start on a team with super stars and see some success. Pretty ambiguous statement, I know.

    This doesn't mean they were unhappy with him at the 3, the position in which he's played 98% of his career.
    If James plays until he is 40, people will still be happy with him, I'm sure.

    I'm not sure if you have a point.

    While they were happy with James at the three, Miami at one pointthis season felt that James was even better (more of a mismatch, presumably) at the 4. So, I don't see them sitting their current starting 3 to move James there and start Millsap (were Millsap to play for that team).

    That doesn't change the fact that Miami's a situation where Millsap makes some sense starting, if Miami wanted to go in that direction. That was the original sentiment by someone and it makes sense.

    Trade Big Al/millsap, and we could probably end eight seed. Defense wins championships. Offense gets you laid

    When the bench can run, as it did in Clippers Part I, it looks great. When it can't, like Clippers Part II, it's atrocious. But in neither game could they run competent half court sets. In a few games they've gone on exciting runs mostly with the break and rebounding like Clips, Orlando. But against GS, Miami, Indy, or any team with a semblance of a team defensive concept, they get schooled because they have no post option whatsoever.
    You are right to keep beating this drum.

    It, then, seems reasonable to wish for a less post-centric offense.

    More radically, it seems reasonable to wish that our players would be freed from Corbin's (non)offense.

    With the personnel we have, and especially with Favors/Kanter coming up the pipeline, we're going to remain a post dominant offense. And being post dominant is good, just not the stagnant way we run it.

    Teams that aren't post dominant almost unilaterally have star guards or wings that can create offense or run effective PnR's. We don't have any of those. So in the very short term, we should be heavily post dominant and get other players involved with motion and screens which we rarely do.

    Longer term, we need a genuine star level 1 or 2 to play with Kanter/Favors. That's the missing piece, other than a coach who knows what to do with those pieces.

    Agreed. Sap and Kanter would be an interesting duo, since they never play together. Our 2nd unit could use some half-court scoring too.
