Default Re: Garnett+Pierce+Kirilenko

Even if Pierce and Garnett are very slow and just the shadows of what they once were, they are replacing Gerald Wallace and Reggie Evans in the starting lineup of a 49 win team. That team had three huge weaknesses: Leadership, Defense and on the offensive end: Floor spacing.

Pierce and Garnett, however old and slow they are, they certainly bring heart, passion and leadership.
The addition of Garnett in itself is already huge defensively, but Pierce is a good defender too, and they also added AK47.
As for floor spacing check these shooting stats:
Wallace:
At the rim: 0.547% (122/223)
3-10 ft: 0.393% (22/56)
10-16 ft: 0.00% (0/6)
16ft-3pt: 0.250% (12/48)
3pt+: 0.297% (57/192)
Pierce:
At the rim: 0.591% (163/276)
3-10 ft: 0.305% (29/95)
10-16 ft: 0.451% (87/193)
16ft-3pt: 0.379 (80/211)
3pt+: 0.369 (156/423)
Evans:
At the rim: 0.543% (108/199)
3-10 ft: 0.353% (24/68)
10-16 ft: 0.222% (2/9)
16ft-3pt: 0.250% (2/8)
3pt+: -
Garnett:
At the rim: 0.724% (113/156)
3-10 ft: 0.412% (77/187)
10-16 ft: 0.482% (93/193)
16ft-3pt: 0.469% (167/356)
3pt+: 0.111 (2/18)
