(I mentioned this a bit in a recent thread, but I'll repeat myself here because I think it warrants further discussion.)
What exactly do we need most in order not to suck? For quite a long time the answer was easy- we need a quality big man, someone who can defend and rebound missed shots. But Monroe's defense and rebounding are much better than advertised. And with CV and and Ben still playing "well" or at least "well enough to deserve significant minutes and with Max still playing competently, are we still in desperate need of a big man?
If we can't blame all of our misery on a lack of big men, what can we blame it on? I look at our roster and I see a ton of average to above average talent at every position with plenty of quality depth. Why can't we at least be an average team? Why do we suck SOOOO hard? What is our problem? What is the missing ingredient?
