The bigs to me aren't the biggest questino mark. For me it's the PG position. We all know what Jose can do, however, he never has had that full time gig all to himself. Even when TJ was down, it was only for a stretch of games (albeit a significant one). We all know Jose plays with energy, but can he hold this up for 82 games + anything in the playoffs? Does he slow down like he did at the end of last season? I understand alot of that points back to the importance Ukic will have on this team next season, but if our number one guy plays to mediocrity and Ukic plays as a rookie (apprehensive, learning the game etc) then we'll be in more trouble than any of us think.

Jose's in a new role and as great as he was as a back up, starting full time playing 35+ min./night will take a toll on his body. How much, well, we'll see.
