Who's our Point Guard going to be?


Where would the Blazer season have been this year without Andre Miller?  Not in the playoff picture, most likely.  However, when (almost) everyone comes back healthy next fall, we'll be faced with the same issue as we had last fall - can Roy and Miller play effectively together.

I don't think so.  Everytime Roy wants to get to the rim, Andre's defender will be sitting in the key waiting for him.  Andre's lack of an outside shot limits Roy's effectiveness.

I think the blazers need to move Miller before the start of the season.  Did Nate hint about this when he stated that everyone on the floor needs to be able to shoot the ball?  Because Roy basically plays the point as a 2, I think the makeup of our point guard has to be:  1)  doesn't need the ball in his hands a majority of the time to be effective, 2)  can make the outside shot, 3) can make free throws at the end of the game, 4) can defend the quicker point guards, and 5) is an intelligent player.  Is that a lot to ask?  To me, it isn't Miller, and it probably isn't Bayless either.

My list is:

S Curry - GS - probably not available.

D Harris - NJ - wish he was a better shooter.  However, is he available?  Recent reports out of Jersey are that he did not get along with Avery Johnson in Dallas.  The Nets are also wanting to be an international team.  Rudy would look pretty good on a team that wants to appeal internationally!

J Calderon - Tor - Shoots 48% from the field, nearly 40% from 3, and 80% from the line.

Hinrich - Chi?
