At the end of the day you need to put the ball in the basket —- I think Burke has shown this when given a chance. I think what we’ve seen out of T Williams is pretty much what we’ll het if we use a pick on most 3s. I think the focus should be on guys who make buckets and we need another big.

In terms of your entertainment or in terms of winning basketball games?

There is one basketball. You need players that can do things when the ball isn't in their hands. You can't win when you have 4 players in the lineup who all need the ball in their hands to be effective. That was Isiah Thomas's problem when he acquired Marbury, Crawford, Francis, Q.Rich, Curry, Randolph. He got to many guys that needed the ball in their hands to be effective and couldn't provide much else away from the ball.

Now of course you want guys that can knock down shots efficiently off assisted. And you want multiple players that can create their own shot that you could pair up and spread out with different lineups. But we have to identify skill sets. Match them up with roles and build balance. If Burke is gonna be a bucket maker and KP is gonna be a bucket maker for example. Then the surrounding players in that lineup need to be able to do the things away from the ball but still knock down shots when the defense keys in on the bucket makers. One isn't more important than the other on a winning team. And everyone needs to play their role efficiently in order to win.

Watch Houston and Golden State--teams are more lethal when you have more shot makers.

If all you take from Houston and Golden State is they have shot makers then there is nothing else to discuss.

At the end of the day both if their teams are made up of guys who can make a scoring play. It comes in different packages but it's still the final result

Ability to score is very heavily depend on ability of ALL 5 PLAYERS run the offense.
Same about defending.
Star power in NBA is the main requirement to win games.
Team structure and system is the main requirement to win games CONSISTENTLY and dominate with a couple of supper stars.
Getting supper stars has a lot of luck to it, having team structure and system is a must to make use of this luck.
