I might as well throw this out there. First: let us get a point guard. Taking into consideration the offensive flows now being established through out the league, it should be no surprise that an under 6-3 PG will not hurt you. In fact, the specialization that must counter-balance the P/R is almost a given that lateral and pure quickness becomes the only equalizer. Always keeps in mind...the P/R is a natural progression against court dimensions that have overloaded the dimensional borders of the court in a direction proportional to accelerated talent levels. OK, that's a tough sentence. Here's another analogy: think big fish (reproductive), little fish (adaptability), that must co-exist in a water cage (court dimensions) that has limited seasonal depth because of the variegated mixture of co-existence (big does not always rule) not subject to Darwinian Rules. Because of that Rule, you see the warp-and-woof of height/slower, reacting against shorter/quickness...now being played out. Remember, there are no losers. Most all of you have a question about an important variable not yet discussed: this is the weather pattern. GM's determine the incremental battle on how everyone can survive within their particular pond. I like to call this the semi-Tolstoy symptom: Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. The latter usually includes 29 left-overs. Proposal: You will not draft a PG that steps right up and dissipates the typical freeze-frame that must nurture the standard 3-year learning curve of almost all PG's. It is not a matter of talent, but progressive perception. You must draft and build upon familiar key-ways. Within a host of possibilities, I would pick, T.J. Ford. Yep, and I could extend this to all levels of justification. A quick look: Experienced and successful Young (25) Quick, adaptable and has the "stop me first" mentality. Not happy with his current role and coaching emphasis Outstanding offensive stats Defensive mentality bleeds over from his offensive arrogance of wanting to be a complete player. This is sometimes called, reflective hunger (ala Melo). Decent contract: 8.5M through 2-10/2-11 with Indiana holding Bird Rights. Solidifies the up-scale and new emphasis of offensive tenure. Bynum as backup will accelerate the momentum. Stuckey can now relax into a role (SG) that needs his concentrated attention. All 3-4-5 positions that have real talent will need to feed off the PG. Boozer/Okur=Williams; Nowitzki/Howard= Terry; Duncan/Ginobili =Parker; Ming/Scola=Brooks; Melo/Nene=CB; Gasol/Odom=Kobe; Garnett/Pierce=Rondo; LBJ/Ilgauskas=Williams; Johnson/Smith=Bibby;O'Neal/Beasley=Wade; Howard/Lewis/Turkoglu=Nelson. And the Piston weather vane is pointing in what direction?
