The mavs exposed and embaressed the blazers back court in the playoffs..... In my mind rick carlsile saw the same problems the blazers have faced since they traded steve blake away. Where is our backup pg in the playoffs, the only highlight patty mills had was getting leveled by brian cardinal, armon johnson hasn't had a solid game since the first month of the season. that left Roy playing out of posistion at the 1 instead of his natural 2 and then left him ineffective for long periods of time. Rich cho admitted that the backcourt needs more speed, thats where the local boy isiah thomas comes in. Despite being a nate robinson clone he also is a very capable point, leading the nations second best offensive team despite being listed at 5ft 8in. Granted he's not a lock to be a all-star or even a starter but when Andre subs out and Isiah enters the game in the loudest arena with a 3 time all star on the flloor with him
he wont have a ton of responsibility besides bringing the rock up the floor and making sure he can get the ball to Roy or Batum then shooting a jumper or putting the defense on their heels by driving to the rim. Or doing a drive and kick to rudy and did i mention the guy can throw the ever popular alley-oop pass? Trade up and take Isiah he can only help the bckcourt.
