No he hasn't. He has a perspective and is able to argue for it better than most.
He has a point here.... although, it does seem like we're lacking a reasonably tight definition of what a "floor general" is.
Weird. It’s not like some of us have been talking about this since Kobe single-handedly exposed Brewer and destroyed the Jazz offense a ****ing decade ago.So we can create one of the best shots in basketball but don’t make it at an average level... so it’s almost like if we added more shooting it’d solve a lot of our problems.
Another thing that kills me: talking about Rubio playing closer to his career averages like he’s “in a slump”. Like, really? That’s who he ****ing is until he proves otherwise, and 35 games doesn’t mean **** in the scheme of things.So you're gonna bank on the 3 months Rubio could shoot The ball when there is 10yrs of evidence that he can't??

I cannot wrap my head around why teams keep trying to shoehorn not-great players that can’t shoot into important players and think they’re serious about winning. The data is very clear on what works in this league, and players like Ricky and Favors ain’t it.
They would be fine players 20+ years ago.
I have no idea what Ricky’s market is. I might just ask him if he’d rather come off the bench or be traded.I think Favs has been fine... he’s only miscast for the time he and Rudy share the floor... he’s been consistent. We’ve seen how we are effective with small ball options and I think we have good options on the roster to address that issue.
Ricky... I don’t think we have a great option outside of DM. DM is the primary creator... has great size for a pg but slightly undersized for a sg/wing. Has a good assist rate for a sg. We have other guys that help to distribute. We have an egalitarian offense that doesn’t require a true pg. if we don’t try it extensively then how do we know what to pursue in trades or FA?
Also, how much do we value Ricky in FA if he gets hot (for him) and he gets to his mediocre averages? Tough to rely on a guy that can get this cold. He wouldn’t be in my long term plans at this point and if he isn’t in the long term plans I think you move now.
I'm tired of everybody talking about our PG problems. I want to talk about potential solutions (outside of DM at PG):
Detroit gets John Wall (they are tied to overpaid Griffen and Drummond so might as well improve where you can and go all in)
Orlando gets Reggie Jackson (they are better than expected but desperate for a decent PG)
Washington gets Rubio (they want a roster reset, dump Wall's monster deal and build around Beal, Oubre and Porter)
We get draft considerations and expirings. We use those draft considerations to get Rozier from Boston.
Way too complicated to be realistic, but all 4 teams would be happy and probably better for now and the long run.

When you are ready to make one clear point based on anything measurable I’m here for it...
GTFO here with pulling a LoPo... you are ducking any real argument cuz you have nothing real to base it on. When you got nothing you go to unarguable points and insults.
