He clearly is an outsider looking in because he is way off base on several things.
First off, he must not have watched DJ in the summer league. His low assist numbers had a lot to do with weaker players not finishing plays or not being able to handle the pass. DJ is a pass first guy and this will show when he is on the court with other NBA quality players.
Also, would Larry Brown really start a rookie? I think not as long as there is another option (Felton).
Matt Carroll starting? I don't think so. While I like Carroll and he may get a spot start or 2 during the year, that is not the answer. He is much better suited as offense off the bench. Starting him at the 2 spot would make 2 other guys play out of position in Richardson and Wallace. That leads me 2 my next issue...
Richardson is not a 3 and Wallace is not a 4. Both can probably play the positions out of neccessity but they aren't the best spots for these 2 guys. He suggests that Wallace would be better suited on a team with "less weight on his shoulders" in the same sentence that he says he should be the starting PF. Really?
I don't really agree with most of his assessments. All in all, as I stated earlier, I feel he is an outsider looking in instead of someone who closely follows the team. Any number of posters on this site could have written a much better article.
