Yesterday that when Collins and Cliffy were in the game we scored points and made runs to get back into the game. Then when either went out and Krstic entered it turned into a double digit lead again. Look I love Krstic as much as anyone but his defense is terrible. He's a big liabilty. Also I think Krstic's playoff stats were kinda overblown. Yea, he averaged 17 a game but no one guarded him. Remeber The Heat's game plan. Let our big men get open looks and guard VC tight. Krstic is one dimensional and is just a scorer. Yea his shotblocking improved but to me shotblocking does not equal defense. I wouldn't mind trading Krstic at all. Now watch the Krstic lovers just attack me.

So Krstic is one dimensional, but Collins isn't?

Krstic doesn't really match up well against Phoenix. Neither did Yao and he's consider the second best center in the league.

As for defense I would say it's "average" and there's alot of room for improvement. You can see he tries his best to hold his own, but getting ticky tacky fouls makes him really tentative and pretty much takes him out of the game mentally speaking. He's still 22 yrs old and very developed at his age, compared to other players.

His scoring ability is still there. Neither Okafor nor Howard(from his class) are on the same level of skill as Nenad on offense. Anyone who says otherwise hasn't seen them play. Unlike Howard, most of Nenad's scoring comes from himself, from his own repertoire of moves and nost just being feed or getting "garbage buckets".

When Nenad gets 35 minutes a game and scores in double digits. We win. Simple as that.

it's just one game, and we don't think that collins is the element of winning.

Collins is a poor freethrow shooter, and can't attack the rim. He is not fast and doesn't know to boxout for grabbing the rebounds!

when VC and JK is lighting us when collins is on the court fortuitously doesn't means Collins is a good player so as Cliff Robinson.

most of the game, i watched Krstic defended the opponent's big men, most of their shot is missed. Nenad always stretched his long arm to disturb their shot, and it always succeeds. Also his blockshot ability is improving.I don't think Krstic is a terrible defender, the most serious case is his foul trouble.
