Again, when CP3 is at his fullest, can you honestly say they're a championship team? I can't. New Jersy still isn't that good or at least haven't impressed me that much from watching them a few times.
Boston does well with Rondo but I'd really like to see Rondo on his own without Allen and Pierce there. Rose isn't the only reason for the Bulls doing well, I think Thibodeau has mentioned the importance of Deng playing well, again SF.
Again, if you look at the top teams in this league: San Antonio, LA, Miami, Boston, New York, Dallas, save for the spurs and celtics, you're looking at teams that are very strong on the wing specifically the SG/SF position.
Jose isn't that bad. He's fine. How many times do you hear here, oh he'd be good in Miami/LA. So, why upgrade a position that if we get elite talent, we'd be fine in?
You pray you get the next Kobe, or LeBron but until than you work with what you have The PG position needs to be addressed because our players aren't very good at creating for themselves, and when your PG isn't good at creating either you have a big problem... I'm not gonna get into the other problems with Jose.
The point I was making about CP3 was how great NO plays when he's 100% showing how important he is to a team that doesn't have elite talent at the wings.
All those teams have aging players. I would say the PG position is equally, if not more important now. And I have NEVER heard anybody talk about how Jose would be good on L.A, or Miami LOL. I've heard that Kirk Hinrich would be since he can guard, and shoot.
