The tall athletic front line is what had them handling other teams. Now they don't have it and will probably hurt more than it helps.
Hedo was their most clutch player too.
rafer was traded by the rockets because he is not a good playmaker, period.. his assist stats shows that. he was a good shoot first PG, i gave you that..
hedo was their most clutch player? i gave you that, but that is because he dominated the ball so much and he's the main reason why the game needs clutch performances,
.. his errors and step-back threes were uncalled so many times, and believe me, orlando fans have seen enough of him.. last year was not even hedo's best but they reach the finals, it shows you they are ready to part ways with him..
the main objective is to outscore and make defensive stops to win the game, not to "out-tall" and more athletic than your opponents frontcourt anyway..
