I think even OKC fans will tell you it wasn't . It was a desperation move because none of his other bigs were performing. If he made this move after Game 3 instead of waiting til an elimination game, then maybe you can call it that. Most coaches (if not all) make some sort of change to the lineup when facing elimination because its do or die.
Even though I'm not a big fan of our offseason (outside of re-signing Marc and getting Wright), we've got a lot of A's for offseason grades from some well respected columnists. That means something, I guess . I think a lot of them felt like we were good enough last season, but health took a huge toll on us. Adding Wright is definitely my favorite move outside of Marc. I guess Barnes is okay, but I'm still unhappy about our perimeter offensive talent. WE GON SEE
And The first round pick (Jarrell Martin) has a Jones fracture in his foot too. Yikes. Good luck.
