Roy=Starting Point Guard?

Pretty simple question posted here and there before, as I recall off the cuff he had similar duties back in Washington, and now  in the NBA ball dominates and has most of the offense run through him it just makes logical sense.

I keep trying to play Miller/Roy etc in my NBA 2K9 game for instance, but it just works so much better in that virtual world with Roy at PG, Rudy/Webster at 2, Batum 3 etc. Andre or another random PG type off bench to spell Roy. This way provides Rudy the playing time he deserves and wants, and can spot up for 3s and other running around like he does well. And Andre gets to be the main ball handler when he comes in off bench playing without Brandon, which would be nearly seamless as Miller is just like Roy without the athletism and outside shot, namley the lack of three pointer.

Is Roy too slow to keep pace with opposing PGs? Who do you slide around to guard them then? Does Batum guard quick starting PGs and Brandon shifts to slower SG/SF types?

Conversly with his size. strength and overall quickness, couldn't he dominate matchups with some PGs assuming the coache's don't switch around? What would that do to the switching though with an overall tall starting line-up with no one under 6'6''?

Bringing the ball up the court have to be relegated to JUST the PG position? Can't our SF/SG bring it up to spell Roy the extra miles running up and down?

Is there a particular game or stretch of the season where we ever actually tried this line-up?
