For the record, Chauncey is playing sg because they claimed him off waivers and THEN the CP3 opportunity presented itself. I don't think they planned on having 4 point guards.
To be honest the offense looked poor with Chauncey running it, mainly because he wasn't.
Chauncey's value would have been more in the playoffs due to him being solid in the halfcourt.
But as far as D'antoni's offense, it does rely on a guy who can be efficient as Steve Nash.
Random pg's can do it efficiently.
Under Duhon the team scored, but not efficiently.
Same with Felton.
Under Nash the Suns were efficient while scoring 100+ points.
