I'm sticking with my campaign to start Shumpert at the point. I said it when we drafted him, throughout the entire summer and yesterday just confirmed it for me. When you guys want to come over to my side, I'll welcome you with open arms.
How bout it ? lol It's lonely over here
I hear you 100, but I don't think D'antoni starts Shump at the point, most likely at the 2, if Fields doesn't hold his ground.
I saw yesterday that Shump has the ability to get in the lane, and had couple of good passes, but can he run the offense?
Not sold on that.
He has some of the tools though...... quickness, strength, good vision, and confidence in his game, and he plays defense, even d-ed up on Deron for a steal.
I'd rather have him as the 2 guard though since he has that catch and shoot worked on from the summer.
Bibby may have to start, even though I prefer he didn't.
But we already know Melo will be running the offense so it's cool.
Toney is best suited with the 2nd unit providing offense as the 6th or 7th guy off the bench.
