Diagnosing the Cats: Where's the playmaker?

An entire week off on the heels of a three-game losing streak has left Kentucky fans searching for answers as to what is going wrong right now.  We've heard about the coaching, the rotations, the poor defensive rebounding, the lack of a third scorer and, now, the lack of a player who can create his own shot.  Jerry Tipton takes a look at what he thinkks might be plaguing the Cats when compared to the SEC teams they've lost to and comes to the conclusion that Kentucky doesn't have a playmaker and that is what is killing them right now.  On the heels of Darius Miller saying that the players don't shoot when they're open because they are working the offense, you have to think that perhaps UK is relying on the X's and O's maybe a little too much and not just playing basketball. But, if one thing could be magically fixed today and not be an issue for the rest of the season, what would you want the Cats to improve on?  When Billy Gillispie had agreed to do a LiveBlog with us back when things were going great, one of the questions I wanted to ask was what one thing he most wants to correct for them to become "they team that they can be", which is something he spoke a lot about following Jodie Meeks' 54 point outburst.  Now, in these not so great times, I pose that question to you.  Discuss below.
