#1 Team Need: Tiebreaker


More below the jump. Feel free to change your vote from the first poll no matter how you voted the first time.

Basically, because the poll closed with a tie at the top, this poll will feature only the four things that got more than 10% of the vote. Because I need to come up with more to discuss in order to make this a FanPost, here is my unsolicited opinion about how the votes have gone so far.

Mainly, I'm surprised so many have focused on offense. If there's one thing that wasn't broken on this team, it was that. They played a very basic offense that mostly relied on pick and roll/pop or dribble penetration to get 3s and layups. Despite this lack of complexity and the role that injuries played in their downturn at the end of the year, they finished 18th in offensive rating and 25 in defensive rating.

I understand the idea of strengthening strengths while reducing weaknesses, but to me, some of the offensive problems they faced will be reduced by: 1) having a full offseason to work on the corner offense and/or other more complex sets and 2) seeing another year of seasoning in the NBA for young players (even though Rubio is rehabbing, he's such a smart player that I'd assume his second year will make him a more aware player).

Okay, word minimum filled.
