Detroit manhandled him in the corners, and Lubo just doesn't seem to have the ability to overcome that on a consistent basis.
Completely agreed. Lubo looked great to us last season, because Neids was taking the dirty minutes, and Lubo could do what he does best. He is a great player, but not a number one.
