Why the **** are the Jazz playing a lineup like that? The Jazz need to play small ball lineups with Gobert at center with guys like Ingles/Joe at the 4.
You keep saying this on repeat...that speaks more to a flaw with the Jazz than it does Rubio honestly.
Those will both be very good imo.
I also think a Favors/Gobert lineup will still work. Rubio just isn't as bad as you make him out to be. Minny got rid of him because he doesn't make sense on that team. I disagree that it is the same. Also, you don't need 4 shooters. Rubio/3 shooters/Gobert...that will be a good offense. But if it is Rubio/Hood/Gordon/Ingles or JJ/Gobert...that has the potential to be awesome on both ends.
Look above for the CARMELO ratings/projections.
