What did we just do? We traded a small, young PG that can't really run an offense with an outside shot for a small, older PG that can't really run an offense and doesn't have an outside shot. And the younger kid was probably better on defense (and that's not saying much.)
Here is to hoping they give Billups that team option next year so he can continue to coach this knucklehead.
I think Jennings has better handles and he can create better. I'm not sure his assist numbers will necessarily go up because Monroe and Smith both rack up their share of those two but I do think the ball will move much better. People think these guys just chuck shots but especially in the case of Jennings he really hasn't had a solid team around him.
