My question is: who? Roy pretty much took Rudy's minutes, which at the very least made the Suns unable to hide Nash on defense by sticking to Rudy. It took till game 6 for Rudy have a decent game. As disappointing as Roy was, he made the Suns at least have to focus on him a bit, while there wasn't any focus needed on Rudy.
