Now, I never thought that I needed to get shots up there. I know I can be a scorer, but I've never needed to have the ball to be happy/effective. What about you guys? Who do you like to play with? What is the ideal point guard for you?
There's a PG like you in my league. It's fine as long as you know how to shoot when someone sags off. Look at Steve Nash, without his shooting skills he would be nothing.
