Of Allen, Adelman and a functional 'Dream Team'
Should the Sonics re-sign Ray Allen? Has Rick Adelman lost his mind? Our stats wiz answers your questions.
With so much playoff action, lots of questions are pouring in from the readers. Let's take a quick look at the mailbag:
Q: John, why are you hating on Marko Jaric? I'd like to hear your rationale for your snide remark 6.1 apg with 3:1 A:TO and 1.68 spg is not that bad, and he has +3.5 plus/minus rating. I think he will be one of the most coveted free agents this summer, especially for a team with a short two guard (i.e. Ben Gordon) Damir, San Francisco
Hollinger: Damir is referring to my recent reference to Jaric when I discussed Mike Dunleavy's use of stats during his broadcasts. I said, "Perhaps the numbers are just a distraction for him to erase his memories of Marko Jaric running the point." It came across harsher than I intended. I love Jaric as a wing player, but to me he's a Band-Aid, at best, at point guard.
