Speaking as a person who watched all of those games when the two were teammates. Antoine was an AS player, on a team that was relatively devoid of any major talent outside of those two. So of course when he's subtracted and you add Jiri Welsh Raef Lafrentz, Ricky Davis, and Chris Mihms, the team is gonna be hella worse. 3 fringe back-ups/end of the bench players and 1 glorified sixth man don't equal what you lost.
I love how you bring up FG% when discussing his playoff numbers, seeing as how all his other number are higher then his regular season averages. FG% is highly overrated in the playoffs everybody' FG% is not very impressive because defense makes it tougher to score efficiently.
