Swea y'all try Winslow by comparing him to a random scrub every preseason. We can be fans and realist/non-pragmatist at the same time
I don't think anyone is saying that Nunn is the better all around player Winslow is but there may be an argument here that Nunn is the better PG. To be fair Nunn has played PG all his life while Winslow is trying to find a home at any position besides C or PF. I see what Spo is doing with Duncan Robinson in the lineup. He's trying to put another shooter in the lineup to compliment Butler and Winslow. The problem i have with this is Duncan Robinson is too one dimensional and Waiters might be too ball dominant to put along side both Butler and Winslow.
If Winslow is indeed the starting PG then you have to start Herro along side him. Not only does Herro stretch the floor probably as good or better then Robinson but he can also handle and create like a PG can. Now if Waiters is the starting SG then I think you have to go with Goran Dragic starting at the PG spot. This leaves Winslow to come off the bench with shooters such as Robinson and Herro. This is ideal for Winslow because he can dominate the ball handling role while dishing off to the shooters without having to stand in the corner watching Waiters pound the ball or Butler in Iso.
I don't see an issue with Winslow/Waiters/Jimmy as Winslow/Waiters was fine last year imo, and I also don't think Winslow will be dominating the ball in any line-up with Jimmy; Winslow playing point is more about his role than it is his touches, he doesn't need a lionshare to be effective. Waiters is literally our best catch&shoot option, why wouldn't we want to play him with our best playmakers?
There's a lot of PG's that played point all of their lives that Winslow is better than, I would rather find out if Nunn is a rotational player first before pitting him to Winslow. He's a more natural PG perhaps, but that has paperthin value in the league today- we have guys that can make plays and play in the PnR and that's the game
As long as Winslow doesn't have to play matador in the corner with the opposing team's bigs he can find spaces to contribute
Meh. I think you run into a spacing problem with Winslow, Waiters, and Butler. Butler in himself is not really a great three point shooter. Basically you only have Meyers or KO as a pure stretch player on the floor with those guys. Spo is trying to alleviate the problem by adding Robinson to the starting lineup but I don't think he's the answer in jest. In a perfect world Winslow is a Scottie Pippen type of scorer and point forward with that lineup but he is not. We are in year 5 with Winslow and the story still remains the same. I view Winslow as a super utility role player on a winning team. Not the transcendent PG some in here view him as.
What I am clamoring for is Herro in the starting lineup if Winslow starts. Herro right in the middle between Butler and Winslow sounds like a winning recipe. This gives Winslow two viable scoring options on the floor to allow him to do the little things he does so well.
