Casey wanted added toughness and we went out and got one of the toughest best defensive PG in the NBA so if he doesn't start all season if healthy (even if he gets off to a slow start to the season) then i throw my hands up tbh and i have to question what we're really trying to accomplish here.
I'm not buying this argument either, jose vs jack and jose vs tj were very civilized (and productive) competitions. The fans may have gotten carried away taking sides, but on the court (and off the court in the public realm) there were no "controversies". And in both cases we got great production at the PG spot. I'm sure Jose is not thrilled, but he's always been a true professional and he will handle it just fine.
But that's not even all that relevant, it's like having a controversy between paul and billups, lowry is clearly the better player, nobody (except maybe jose and his die hard fans) is disputing that. Lowry was confirmed as the starting point guard the moment he got traded for and that was that.
