i like our forwards and the improvement at center is huge but i think we suck at guard.
Kidd, Terry, Barea, Roddy B, D. Jones, Stevenson.
Stevenson, i'll just ignore. from what i saw the guy is good on defense but i doubt he will see much play other than junk time.
i still have Kidd ranked #1 because he is a good point guard. if he can stay decent with a 3 pointer, cool. personally I’d cut his minutes to sub 30 all season. keep him a bit more fresh for the playoffs and reduce risk of injury, but mostly to give more minutes to the 2 young guys.
Terry can put up 20 up on any given night so i still think he is okay offensively but he is very streaky and as soon as it gets crunch time, a small bit of defense makes him fade away. Then his defense is pretty bad to boot.
Barea may handle the ball and penetrate paint easy but he can’t do anything with the ball once he gets there. get stuffed or make an errant pass and cause a turnover. he is the worst defensive player we have. he provides a spark off the bench so i have no problem with him getting 8 mins… 23 minutes however? HELL NO.
i have big hopes w/ Roddy B. this year. I’d like to see him get all of barea’s minutes. This kid has the ability to make a difference here. I wish they would work on his defense. He just needs playing time.
it would be great if Dominique Jones develops, but if Carlisle doesn’t involve him in the season early, then he will just be a prospect/junk time player this year.
