RE: losing Blount
Well it's just as absurd to go overboard the other way. Acie Earl hasn't played in the NBA in years, and I can't see what relevancy that comment has. It's not like he scored that 40 on Blount (wasn't that 40 against the tanking ML team anyway?).
Blount HAS been there most of the season (yes, he does need to be kick started periodically on things like rebounds, but it has been done), NOT just one good game. A significantly better player than he was before this season, not quite doubling his career stats in things like points and rebounds, shooting almost 60% all season long on short to medium range jumpers as an outlet option not just gimme put backs, playing the most consistant defense within the system up front, etc. Not saying he's a god or all star material. He most certainly has his limitations and on a really good team is an active, effective young backup. But he's definitely been a very big, if not flashy, part of what success we've had all season.

Lets not overrate Blount. He had one good game. Where was he all season.
Acie Earl scored 40 against us
