D'Antoni obviously doesn't have any problems giving him significant minutes, so this isn't a big deal. It's not like he's actually demonstrated any of the point guard skills we actually need in the starting lineup.
And Shumpert >>>>>>>>>>> Douglas by a margin you can't even imagine.
Exactly. I'd rather see Fields start over Douglas. At least Fields contributes elsewhere when his shot isn't dropping. Douglas is in there to do one thing, shoot 3's. If he isn't making them...it's a wrap. Sad part is, he isn't exactly Novak out there.
Shumpert had some nice penetrate and dish passes to Amare. If we can get that from him consistently, I'd be a happy man.
