My point is that it doesn't matter if it is Singler getting lost on the screen or Tony Allen. It is that the defensive system is more important than the individual players. The Spurs turned Boris Diaw into a useful defensive bench option. Indiana made Luis Scola look half decent on D. Miami can cover for Norris Cole and Ray Allen with an effective system. Is Singler bad at fighting round screens? Sure. Is that the only reason Cleveland was getting completely uncontested free throw jumpers? No. It doesn't help that he isn't lightning fast, but I saw other players get lost on the same play and it ended with the same result. So the question is, why are we talking about Singler so often? I also love your passion, and enjoy reading your posts. But I feel as though your malign is misplaced. You are right. But as I said, there was a stretch of 7 straight possessions where he did not pass the ball. That is unacceptable given his shot selection. Pope has looked lost out there. I have noticed that he has turned to unnecessary fouling as well. This worries me.
