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.

I think we can all agree the common denominator is getting rid of D'Antoni. Where are the people from last year that were defending this prick? lol

So you see now that you were wrong about Chauncey being a playmaker, but you won't admit it. Sack up, franchize.

Short term: Yes

But Long term: NO

Maybe if we are a defensive team like the bulls then billups or pg is more of a priority than center but we can entice pgs to take a paycut for us so why not take advantage of that. If we fail this season is because we dont have a pg, we still have the MLE for next season or else we will be the heat which I dont know if they can still fill their hole at the center. Pg is a fun position to play just like scorer whereas a center is not, so pgs are more likely to take a paycut than a center so you take the harder part to fill and its the C. And we really got davis for cheap. So it really works. And davis is enough to win you a chip.

Like I said,Billups is an experienced point guard who can control the tempo,make the right play and hit a big shot.
BUT HE'S NOT A PLAYMAKER

Is he offensively better than Douglas or Shumpert ? Yes.
But that doesn't mean he's Steve Nash.

Amare averaged 24.3 points,7.4 rebounds on 50% shooting in March and 20.8 points,5.8 rebounds on 43% shooting in April (not counting the playoffs).
His number with Billups dropped.He probably wouldn't have been as bad as he's now but he wouldn't be dominating like he did on that 9 game 30+ points stretch either.

Amare performed well after the trade until he decided to coast. He even performed well in game 1 of the playoffs.

I never agreed to that nor did you prove me otherwise. Billups has been doing just fine with Paul injured. He's a good point guard and very solid in half court offense.
