1. The issues with the starting unit starts with CP3 for me. Want to know why we are last in pace? Because CP3 allows the ball to roll to half court before picking it up to give us a full 24 second shot clock. But want to know what also happens? Defenders get set and get a nice 5 seconds to catch their breath while CP3 watches the ball roll and our guys stand still waiting for the offense to start. Then Payne comes in and pushes pace up the floor every possession and we all say "WOW THE BENCH IS CARRYING US!" Well, yeah, it's a lot easier to get good shot attempts against a tired and not set defense, it's not rocket science....CP3 is a good point guard, but he needs to get us into the offense earlier.


Thank you for writing this so I didn't have to!

Pretty simple.

Last year:

Rubio, Book, Mikal, Oubre, Ayton = great
Rubio, Book, Mikal, CamJ, Ayton = great
Therefore
Rubio, Book, Mikal, PF, Ayton = great

Paul, Book, Mikal, PF, Ayton = stinks.
- Book plying like garbage
- Ayton playing like garbage

CP3 is a pound the rock, half court PG.
Rubio maximised the output of the young guys by pushing the tempo and moving the ball.

Something needs to change - either Paul learns how to push it, or Book and DA learn to play half court (which is not their strength).

I think we are fool's gold.

BUT CHRIS PAUL'S HALL OF FAME LEADERSHIP IS LEAGUES BETTER THAN RUBIO'S!!!!!

I found the reason for the Suns playing poor D. they where just concerned with all the positive cases and where trying their best to stay 6ft away from the Washington players!
