Guess I'm stradling the fence on this one... I think the LB detracters underestimate his attention to detail and game time adjustments... sometimes they're too caught up on the injustice to Darko to admit that DMC wasn't nearly as good as the guys he would take minutes away from. As for the Saunders inferior guys, I don't think it's fair to judge his playoff success based on A) Lakers and Spurs talent superiority over the past 7 years & B) His hands being tied due to several years of sanctions and limited cap because of KG's bankroll If the Lakers (in their prime) and the Spurs (best teams) were in the East, the Pistons likely would be looking a lot like the Twolves until 03/04. Just lke Darko... Flip deserves a fair shake and a clean slate to see what he can accomplish with a deep & talented team... the team Also needs a couple months to adjust to Flip's strategies... This could cost us a top seed.
