Isaac, I just feel like Gibson and Cadee are too similar in that they are neither great shooters nor great penetrators. Hence we have these droughts where we just pass the ball around the perimeter without being able to draw the defence out of position to create an open look.
A player who could regularly beat his opponent off the dribble, would draw the D and not only get our shooters open, most importantly they would get a lot more out of Luke, who would get many more uncontested shots at the rim.
From the quotes I read, this seems to be what Clarke is looking for and is the reason he claims he cut CJ - because he didn't appear to be able to do much more than catch and shoot.
Whether this is true or not, he's gone now and to make that cut worthwhile, IMO its gotta be someone who will make an impact.
As far as the last game goes, I only saw the boxscore, but what stood out to me was that Perth had 20 odd more shots than us and TO's was a big part of that. Cadee leading the way with 6 just shows that we are too dependent on Gibson in the backcourt to instigate the offence, look after the ball and defend the opponents best guard.
To me that says that if we want to make the playoffs, we need to take some pressure off Cadee and get a starting quality player to support Gibson.
