Are the Big East Tranfers the Cure or the Disease!!!

In the words of the immortal Dicky Barrett,,, "What you call the disease, I call the cure.!"

I believe the divided camps each go too far...first I'll address the camp that is calling relentlessly for more time for Coleman and Nunez. One poster suggested how interesting it would be to let Coleman (who we finally accepted was out with a flu bug again) and Nunez on the floor for five minutes, and just tell them to go crazy... I doubt that would work. Nunez can defend, but not consistently well in the varying schemes Few likes to use. We might get some highlight dunks sure, but we'd more likely get to see Haws get enough open looks to heat up like a microwave,, next thing you know he is getting so much attention Carlino goes off, next thing you know we are down by 15!!!

Those who suggest that we should wait till next year are totally ignoring the already significant contributions, and game changing plays both have already made this season.

I hearken back to the early 2000's watching the hyperathletic NBA squads, with their eye level rim dunks, and ankle braking drives to the hoop, in fantastic battles with the rifle quick passes and dead-eye marksmanship and execution of the Euro squads in the Olympics. Both styles can win. Good teams have an identity as one or the other, but can mix in a bit of both. Like that 3pt. marksman from Canada, Syracuse mixed in with a bunch of great defenders and slashers. Or Rosie Jones, mixed in with the good shooters at Butler a few yrs back.

Point is, you would like a mix of both. It is just really tough to do, to keep your balance, and your identity, as you break in a new dimension to your squad. Few has had great athletes, like Erroll Knight pre injuries, and Micah Downs. He has had mixed results I think.

Overall, he is doing his best, and winning games (like last night). I still hold hope he meshes our transfers more effectively as THIS season wears on!
