I think in shot clock situations, and at the end of close games, jose stepped up big in many occassions (the game we beat boston for example)...
he has the ability to beat opponent pg's one on one.. and manages to dish to other players when help comes in the paint
anyways, yes we did just shift the weakness to another area.. but lacking great guard plays can be compensated by a good frontcourt for sure... I would take a the combo of good frontcourt poor backcourt OVER poor frontcourt good backcourt any day, or else we'll just be the a former sixers (with allen iverson), or new york knicks, or a yao-less rocket, or a gasol-less lakers... these teams have great backcourt by lacks frontcourt...
