I’m shocked that it seems shocking to you. My thought DLo is the starting PG, that’s what we brought him in to be.
I think Rubio is past the point in his career where it’s a meaningful designation. Maybe he will end up starting, I just don’t see why he would have to.
You don't take a guy who earns 17 millions to be backup PG. It don't make sense at all.
He will start as Russell can play both spots and in today's NBA having multiple ballhandlers is normal and Ricky can also guard SGs.
Also this team needs Ricky, they need defense, competitiveness and a big mental change, and that's why I think they bring Ricky back.
This team had the talent but not the other things that makes you a playoff team.
