Have you ever seen a more finally tuned athlete as sexy as Malik Allen?  Maybe, just Maybe.  But unfortunately for us, being sexy is not enough to be a contributing factor to the Nuggets, but before I start to criticize Malik Allen's play, let's look at the positives for Malik Allen.

Now that we laid out the positives let us look at the negatives of Malik "Tacos" Allen. 

 

1. He does not seem to notice when someone passes him the ball.

Chris Anderson made a perfect no look pass where Malik Allen was right underneath the basket for an open dunk/layup, if Malik Allen had been K-mart, it would of been a vicious dunk, but Malik Allen did not seem to notice he was being passed to until the ball was in his hand, where he then had to dribble back out and pass (Sign).

 

2. He does not box his man out ever.

Remember when you were a kid playing basketball with your friends, and when someone shot it  the ball hit the back of the rim, everyone prepared for the rebound by just hoping it came to them?  Malik Allen is one of those kids.

3. He can't shoot, He can't defend, It's not that it was 5 vs 8 last night, it was 4 vs 8 for the time he was on the court.

 

Im sure you get the point now, and to be fair Malik Allen only played 5 minutes, when he should of switched his minutes with Petro, which was 0.  Petro actually rebounds, hustles and finds the open man from time to time. Even though Petro is an offensive liability sometimes, Tacos is a liability anywhere on the court doing anything that does not contribute to the other team.

 

So my question is this, what would you trade Malik Allen for that would be a realistic scenario,  2 tacos?  4 tacos?
