I really like Shabazz at point. Depending who fills in at two, we're gonna have a big lineup lol!

I've heard good things about Williams and have a hunch he'll wind up starting for us. Maybe it will be a situation where he and Shabazz play together and share the PG and SG roles.

Note the drive, draw and dish from Williams to Kinney just before the end of the footage. Something we haven't seen a lot of in these past few years and one of the dynamics that everyone has been saying that O' gives us.

Shabazz running point FINALLY. We should really aim to emulate that the Rockets do with James Harden (not saying Shabazz is James Harden) but we might have the spacing and outside shooting this year to be relevant if we try to follow that mold and just let our best player create through driving and dishing for the others on the court with him.

it certainly didn't hurt Davidson when Curry was pg. He obviously still got his buckets, although he was more of a pure shooter than a point guard

That is the prevailing style in the NBA now, but I'm not holding my breath for Fox to switch to a totally new offense after coaching the same one for 15 years or whatever it is.

I just hope this year's team can show some real progress. Shabazz is an exciting player; I just hope the team jells and makes a little noise in the Belt.
