Having four 'bigs' next year who can make inside bunnies & defend, and three who can step out and shoot a spot up jumper, will add a dimension that is hard to stop. How many years (decades?) did we hope for just ONE big who could make a bunny? We've had a smattering, Avery, Kante, Wurtz, Tunnell (more outside threat for Tunnell Vision, though), but now we have a steady stream. We saw that 'size' (with ability) is necessary against Syracuse. We couldn't match up with all their 'big' bodies inside and having depth with 2's, 3's, and 4's couldn't overcome it. Adding more building blocks with Walker, Mahurin, Kitchell, and Gant, all at 6'8", and three with some body mass, will make a positive difference, one would think.
