What I don't understand is why did we sign Miller? Why did we pay $7 million a year for the next 2 years at least for a backup PG? If we wanted a better backup PG than Sergio than we could've just signed Brevin Knight or Anthony Carter for the league minimum and saved a whole lot of money. That's right, we needed a better PG than Blake so we could've used Steve off the bench. So why is Nate so insistent on starting Blake over Miller? To balance the team my a$$. He is the coach so he is the one that has to come up with a way to play the best players from the start and not just play is safe and do what did last season. Did we win the Championship last season? No! So we need change, Miller starting would be the change that we need. With Andre we would be able to run more and get easy baskets but with Blake we would not. Didn't Nate say that he wants the team to run more?And does he not say that every pre-season? Well we never had a true PG until now, and now that he does he seems too scared to implement a fastbraking offense. If only we had traded Blake as well as Sergio than Nate would have no choice but to go with Miller. The reason for my recent dislike of Steve Blake has more to do with all the Blake fans. Blake had one good year last season and you all think that the world shines out of his bum. The guy is so limited that I cringe whenever he is on the court. All he can do is shot the 3 ball and when his shot is not falling then what does he offer the team? At least with Andre he can make plays for his teammates, rebound and play better defense. Blake would not start for any other team in the league but Miller would be starting for more than half of them. I was so looking forward to having better play from our starting PG position this season when we got Miller but just because Nate can't figure out a way to expand his way of thought. My solution is simple, start Miller and play him for the first 5-6 minutes and then rest him till the other starters come off then bring him back to play the second unit. As I remember correctly, last season we had one of the lowest scoring starting units in the league and almost always required that the backups make it up. That had to do with starting Blake, Batum and Pryzbilla. That's why I'm in favor of a starting lineup of :-
PG-MILLER SG-ROY SF-WEBSTER PF-ALDRIDGE C-ODEN
BLAKE FERNANDEZ BATUM OUTLAW/HOWARD PRYZBILLA
I know that Webster might not be able to start right away but he should be able to by late December. This way our shooters will be spread out for both units and we'd play our best players from the start of every game!
