I think your downplaying the physical aspect of the game and that is what O'Brien brought to the team and he instilled in Weber how to play the physical game and Weber was a beast in the playoffs. I think too many are looking at salary and forgetting the aspect of the game. Sure you can play this guy and that guy who is cheaper and if that's all that matter then we'll be playing that game and watching the playoffs because the physical aspect is huge part of the game like it or not
