turiaf was a nice energy guy, but amudson will duplicate that. so that is really not the biggest concern,losing those two guys. only AR was a risk and the thing this deal was about.
Good point on Amundson doing what Turiaf did, but Azu hasn't been replaced to me. Again, it's the total game, the offense and the defense that Lee doesn't give and was lost in that trade
not quite right, because we got an offensive gem, so what you lost on defense (if you lost any), you gain on offense and rebounding (which is partof the defense, me thinks), plus defense of turiaf is replaced, azu is replaced by dwright at sf. i really don't think we lost anything, but the potential of anthony randolph, while aquiring proving offensive player that happens to get rebounds, that's it.
