- If Plummer and Allen return, I’d replace battin and Larsson in the starting lineup. Larsson is good, but I think he’d be better coming of the bench than Jones. Larsson can be the first guy off the bench replacing anyone but Carlson really.
If Allen doesn’t come back, we are screwed on the inside. If he doesn’t come back, we are SCREWED SCREWED SCREWED when it comes to scoring in the paint. He is a deeply flawed basketball player, but he is the only person on this team capable of not looking like a fool with his back to the basket, or attempting to finish through contact.
IOW: If Allen comes back, we could be quite good next year (if Carlson actually practices basketball, and lifts weights this time). If he doesn’t come back, we will be worse than this year by a wide margin.
