Seriously, what's the point? As in, what's the point guard position supposed to look like going forward?
The problem with this philosophy is that even if you hit on a veteran with something left in the tank, by nature it's guaranteed to be short lived because these guys are nearing the end of their careers. I think we'd be better with Miller right now, but how much longer was that really going to last? Even if we still had him, we'd still be looking around for his replacement. We're always looking for that PGOTF, but the right fit never comes along because we're too mediocre to get a good draft pick, and we don't have the pieces to trade for something nice.
In the meantime, most of the teams around the league seem to be hitting on the position right and left (like Green Bay with Rogers). We had our chances too, with the Chris Paul/Deron Williams draft (yah, Webster and Jack worked out real well for us). But I just don't see us being able to compete in the playoffs without a guy we can count on to bring it at the PG position game in and game out. So, if that's the case, I'm wondering what's the point? What's the point of continuing down this road if all we'll ever be is a pretty good team that can't win in in the playoffs? Where is that PG going to come from? Is there a chance we can sign someone this offseason? If not, then it might really be time to consider blowing it up. Having some nice players on the wing doesn't make sense if you don't have someone to run the show. Maybe trading Aldridge to ensure an excellent draft position for the next couple of years is the right move at this point? Maybe we get something back for him, maybe we get bad enough to get some high picks. I don't know. What I do know is this perpetual mediocrity is getting old, and there is literally no point.
