Yeah, I don't think teams have begun game planning for Collison yet. The kid knows how to play ball though. 4 years of college experience probably has something to do with that. It's about time the Hornets get someone to back up Chris Paul that knows what they're doing. No more older, chucking shooting guards in point guard bodies playing the role of a point guard.
