With all do respect to you TVCEL, I totally disagree.
His defense has looked pretty good compaired to the defense of Arroyo and Nelson (the guys I would have him replace at PG). Too Slow? I don't think so. Maybe he is slow compaired to Nash, but not compaired
to most PG's in the east. If if has to become a one-dimentional player waiting on Arroyo to throw him the ball, he might as well be on the bench or on another team. His game is better suited for moving the ball and having some control of it. He makes great passes and has plenty of experience in high pressure situations. Using him for running off screens is wasting the guy. He should be the one taking the easy jumpers that arroyo and Nelson only make half of the time. PG's get alot of open shots strictly by moving the ball. Trouble is The two we have only make the shots some of the times. JJ would be a much better defender, passer and shooter than
Arroyo and Nelson. Dooling might do better than all of them, but I think JJ should be looked at in the G position. It allows the Magic to get their best players on the floor at one time.
Dont get me wrong I love JJ and always have but he doesn't have the handle to get it up the floor at this point in his career. The ball pressure would just be too much for him. I was hoping it would be something he would tighten this summer but we know how that went. Anyway I do think you bring up an intresting point which is why not let someone else start the offensive sometimes. While I dont think JJ is a guy that can do it. Grant Hill has played the point forward penty of times in his career. He is a good decesion maker and is often guard by someone he has a speed mismatch on so opposing teams would have difficulty apply the ball pressure that leads to so many turnovers. Now I dont think he should be used as a point guard but playing some point-forward could have been benifical to the Magic this year

What last year collapse? They sucked all year last year until they turned it on at the end with a 16-6 run. It's hard to say the players are ready for this last stretch just because they won two games against really bad teams who were missing key players.
Why don't you go first and than take Mr. Hill with you, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!
