An elite 3 or a 5 and yesterday is a win. What would Dickson have done offensively against Greg Oden?

There's a lot of ways to skin a cat. Obviously Holtmann didn't get anything from the 3 position yesterday, but his lack of a big hurt just as much. Dickinson averaged 8ppg & 8 rbg in the previous 4 games leading up to the game yesterday he went for 22 and 8. Ultimately the team is what it is, if they're going to give up - points at the 3 and the 5, they're probably going to lose.
: EJ gets mismatches on Offense when slower 5’s try to guard in perimeter. Worse case is a trade-off like EJ/Dickinson yesterday. Move EJ to the 4 it presents him with less mismatch advantages for his current skill set.
: A player of the caliber of Livers would be a difference maker. He is not an AA, but a very good well rounded 6’7” 3. Stretches the D, can drive, rebounds, and plays great D on perimeter.
