    Ben Wallace sucks.
    Flip Saunders is a great coach.
    Larry Brown is over-rated.
    Joe Dumars is a mastermind.

    Rodney has already been ruled out of tomorrow night's game (to no surprise).

    Seeing that video that Dre posted made me feel a little more at ease. It's nice to see him in good spirits. Hopefully he can return to the court soon.

    Will Bynum had 11 assists. Good opportunity to really see what he has as a starter. Have to decide to keep him or not this summer.

    What does Stuckey do better than Bynum?

    I like Stuckey as a person and wish him a speedy recovery. I would not object if they decided to go in a different direction at the point. I know Stuck is a scorer and a fine defender but his style is losing basketball. He has played entire games with only 2 or 3 assists. Completely stagnant offense at times. Guys have to work for their own shots - hence the horrid FG stats this year. He rarely kicks it out to the open man on a drive like Will was doing last game.

    Stuck has made some progress but I don't know.

    Bynum is a better shooter, drives just as well, is quicker when guarding opposing PG's, he has a higher assist rate, better endurance... and he dunks way better.

    Stuckey is stronger, can guard multiple positions, and rebounds better. All of those attributes would still work at the SG spot. The only problem is that Rip and Ben Gordon are both better shooting guards than he is because they can shoot.

    It's amazing seeing the easy buckets Will creates for others.

    We just have too many guards.

    He moves the ball a lot better than Bynum. Pure assist numbers hardly tell the whole story. Stuckey doesn't pound the ball into the ground like Bynum does. Will Bynum KILLS ball movement, especially when paired with Ben Gordon. How often does Bynum take a jump shot off a screen before anyone else touches the ball? A lot more often than I've seen Stuckey do it.

    Regarding things Stuckey does better... he's a significantly better defender and rebounder, he's better at moving the ball, their shooting is about equal (Stuckey is technically better - .368 eFG on jumpers, Bynum .366 eFG%), Stuckey is less turnover prone and gets blocked less often than Bynum (funny that that is always a complaint from fans regarding Stuckey, yet Bynum actually gets stuffed more often).

    Bynum just had his first "good" game in several months. That doesn't suddenly make this a debate again. Stuckey is definitely a better player.

    I don't know that I agree with this. Bynum makes plays off the dribble and can feed the post. Will is much more the traditional PG.

    Agreed. Stuckey picks up his dribble too often and allows his defender to close up and take him out of the play as a scoring threat. Bynum pounds the ball about as much as Dwyane Wade or Steve Nash pounds the ball.

    But that one is actually a negative for Stuck. I don't agree with TaS that Bynum is a better shooter, I wish Stuckey would do more to keep the defense honest by using his decent jumper off of screens, and forcing them to go over, instead of always going under. Bynum cleverly does this and makes people pay for playing him only as a driving threat.

    Stuckey is very one dimensional when he makes a move. You can almost count on him (and the defense frequently does) to not look for an open teammate, which leads to3 or 4 players collapsing on him.

    I'll give you this. Stuckey can play off the ball, Bynum cannot. Stuckey can play the 2, Bynum cannot.

    But I think Bynum vs. Stuck at the point is a wash. Bynum is one dimensional, but his dimension is not Stuckey's strong suit.

    Neither is a George Hill. :stirthepot:
