AB will always be a player who will never be starting on a good team. So he can start here for as long as he wants and can, as long as the team is trash like it is at the moment.
I still don't understand how people get this idea in their heads, because it just makes no rational sense to me.
How many championships did the Lakers win with Derek Fisher as their starting PG?
How many championships did the Spurs win with Bruce Bowen as their starting SF?
How many championships did Miami win with Shane Battier as their starting SF/PF?
How many championships did Chicago with guys like Luke Longley, Bill Wennington and Will Purdue as starting centers?
Do people around here really and truly believe that Avery Bradley is more skilled and talented then any one of those guys? Was Perkins any more skilled/talented then Bradley when we won the title in 2008?
People here have this unrealistic expectation that if you want to win a championship, every single player on your starting lineup needs to be a start or a borderline star...that's not how it works.
actually that is my point lol......if AB was to become Derek Fisher , he would ultimately be a 8 per game scorer on 40% shooting
but even he cannot do that, because HE IS NOT A POINT GUARD. Fisher is. As attrocious and hideous as Fisher's numbers look.
AB cannot do what he does on other teams AS A STARTER, he is worth this much only because everyone around him is barely or not better than he is.
