Can you imagine any of the better PGs you mentioned on our team right now instead of Jose? How long would it take for them to get frustrated and require a trade?
or even better - Can you imagine we don't have Jose, wouldn't you like to bring him here?
i knew u meant westbrook for us, i'm just a bit obsessed with not liking him! i have a thing against over-hyped players, in all sports, as well as the trend for high-scoring PGs. Run your team, score when the team needs you to. I just love nash man, will go a whole Q without shooting, then suddenly the team is struggling to score? he steps up and makes big shot after big shot. What a legend.
Rubio is definitely very fashionable, but really surprised you're not impressed by him. His passing is, imo, outstanding, and his scoring has been better than expected. I really believe he will be a huge player in the coming years. I hope he wins ROY over irving, who is good, but not great.
i can imagine those other players you mentioned playing for us next season and not being frustrated, but i do take your point.
when you said would i like Jose if we didn't have him, that did make me think a bit. I understand what you're saying. He's a bit old, has a history of injuries and due to that and inconsistencies over the last 3 seasons you could argue he's not worth his contract. Right now, he prob is worth the money.
there are PGs out there who could develop into what we need, guys i didn't list before. these are debateable of course. Lawson, conley, collison, augustin, etc. Or we could use jose in a trade for another position, an extra high(ish) pick, draft good young talent and take a risk with the PG. FA, Draft, trade for a guy not as good as jose but we take a risk and hope he improves, or accept a weaker PG but the other 4 positions are really solid.
my point all along has been i'm very open to all posiblities. Enjoying the debate tho mate, no sillyness, just saying our opinions.
