Default Toney Douglas

Is he the worst staring point guard in the NBA? Before you accuse me of overreacting, seriously think about the question. I think it's between him and Chalmers. He can't do anything really on the court. I think that one saving grace, his "stellar defense", is officially out the window. He sucks

I usually defend the guy but he's out of excuses right now.

Douglas sucks as a starting point guard,only role he's good at is a scorer off the bench.

He never should have been cast in the role of starting PG, it's not his game.

He played his best last year when he was on the court with Felton or Billups. He can handle the ball in a pinch, but he has a score first mentality. A spark off the bench guy.

Also, aside from being miscast this year, I think he's shook from getting absolutely torched in the playoffs last year, and it's just compounding the problem. Tonight when he needed to be looking to score he was passing, because "he's the PG". He's tentative and has no confidence right now.

He isnt a PG plain and simple. He shouldnt be starting for any club.

He just isn't a pg, whether starting or off the bench.

He's good for some quick scores, and second unit mayhem off the bench.

I really like Toney Douglas but he isn't even capable of being the Leandro Barbosa of the team. He is simply a 2-guard in a PG's body. I guess Jeremy Lin will probably get more playing time now.

It wouldn't hurt, but we really should start Bibby, let Lin play a few, and stick to the script.

Let the offense run through Melo.

The whole team said they had a surprise to show.

I'm really still waiting for the surprise.

I agree.

Toney won't be starting once Baron is healthy, so might as well get a jump on him being back in that 6th/7th man role where he'll be more comfortable

With the offense running through Melo there's the problem of getting it to work with Amare, which D'Antoni doesn't seem to have made much progress on, but that's another issue.....

Agreed about the point guard play.

Melo made sure Amar'e had the ball when he was in a spot to score against Boston, and gave him proper shot attempts to work with.

Against the Warriors, Amar'e put the ball on the floor far too much and was trying to create, which is not his game.

That's not Amar'e game.

Plus I trust Melo's court awareness better than anyone else on the team.

That's why Lakers won 2 championships in a row just a few years ago ?

Please don't say that Fisher is above average because I don't know if he's even average.
