He is almost as bad as Don Nelson, taking out the player thats hot in the first half and end up losing a big lead because of it.
The team is very versatile though. They had Griffin at Center, Thornton at PF and Butler at SF and managed to do well, of course they were against Don Nelson who puts Biedrins with 4 guards but still. Butler, Davis, Novak and Gordon are deadly threats at 3. Davis and Gordon can create shots. Thornton is getting better and Griffin is a monster, back him up with Camby and Kaman, pretty much a rebounding trio and with Kaman and Griffin a great scoring presence in the middle. Jordan is young and has a chance to be somewhat like Bynum, he just needs direction. Skinner isn't a bad back=up to rest one of their centers for a few minutes. Craig Smith can take up space in the middle too, he can hustle and usually get rebounds well.
Telfair is a great back-up to Davis and Gordon, he showed last year that he can score and distribute the ball. I still think he has a good potential. And with Davis' injury record, he is bound to get plenty of playing time. Rush does well at times but he can provide a few points for a few minutes, along with Collins who hustles as well.
Overall, a pretty solid team barring their stupid coach.
I love Baron Davis, but he made barely 30% of his three-point shots last year, which means that he missed (by a considerable amount) cracking the league's top 100. He's never made more than 34%. I didn't bother to look up the others, although I would assume that Gordon, at least, shoots for a higher percentage than that.
