Time to tweak our offensive philosophy?

I've watched every game the Magic have played in the last 14 months, and when we are firing on all pistons we are a legitimate title contender. Last year was no fluke. The 1 in 4 out offensive set caught a few teams off guard last year but this year many teams seem to have made adjustments ( i.e.  giving the Magic only open shots in the 10'-23 range.)  Dwight has been unable to carry us consistently in the low post (still not enough variation, poor free-throw shooting), which in turn hasn't given our three-point shooting the necessary distance it needs to be effective. I know that we are in a team shooting slump, and I don't want to abandon the 1 in/4 out set. But, with Jameer, VC, Anderson, Pietrus, Barnes and even JJ, we do have players that CAN put it on the floor and get to the paint/rim. Might it be a good idea to maybe step off the three-point shot pedal, insert Bass at the 4 when we take 'Shard out for a breather, and play traditional pound it Eastern Conference basketball? Not all the time, of course. But sometimes you have to pass to set up the run in the NFL, or the other way around. I know Lewis is a defensive liability at the 3, but right now, our match-ups ain't worrying anybody as they did in the past. Bass might keep other teams off of the glass and Dwight a bit. Would love to hear you all chime in on this.
