Chris Paul: Overly reliant on Big Men?
I just read this in Marc Stein's power ratings:
They look like the Hornets again with Chandler back -- 30-13 when TC plays, 11-11 when he doesn't -- but you wonder how much Chris Paul and D-West will have left for the playoffs given the loads they're lugging.
This helps my assertion that a small point guard who loves to get steals is a major defensive liability if there isn't an athletic big man waiting in the middle to clean up his mistakes-- not to mention catch lob passes to bail him out when he gets in the lane with no where to go.
I would be the Hornets are likely to fail to cover the spread any game that Tyson Chandler sits out....
