Dave adds one:

Jason Quick has a story today about Coach McMillan's hope that Martell Webster will continue evolving as a defender. My brief take: I'm all for him defending and giving the coach another reason to keep him on the floor. But as I've said a half-dozen times or so, Martell is a shooter. That's why he's in this league. That's what got him drafted. His first priority is to make his shots because if he isn't he doesn't belong out there. As long as that's happening, everything else he does is fantastic. If it isn't, you better play someone else.
