Why do you want a number 1 PG after JUST STATING you need a SG or SF to be the man?! Typo surely?

Bosh should have never been our "franchise player", nor should Bargnani be our franchise player and i doubt Val will be that franchise player. IMO our franchise player when we hope to contend isn't here yet.
Fair enough. You're obviously a guy who is into his blueprints for success. Personally I don't think it makes a blind bit of difference which position your star player plays. That's what makes basketball one of the most dynamic sports to watch IMO. To be honest, I'd rather have MOST of the scoring through what is (traditionally) the highest FG% yeilding position.
