Who do you see starting and backing up at "point guard" next year - with the understanding that LeBron is running the offense next year but realistically can't guard small PGs at the start of any game?

Bradley/Caruso.

I want to see Caruso get 20+ mpg at least.

At the moment, Bradley /Caruso.

We'll have to see what training camp and injuries dictate though.

Will be interesting to see how Rondo fits. Contributing player or end of the bench asst. coach to only be used in emergency?

I am not excluding Cook from earning significant mpg as the back up either. Young man can shoot. Can be a pesky defender even at his size. Potential to have a breakout year and work his way into the nightly lineup.

Caruso/Cook is not an option for some reason...

Well tbh for shooting purposes I kinda want KCP to log a small amount of time at the 3 when Kuz is the 4 and allow a Caruso/cook backcourt off the bench with Bradley starting alongside green in the back court

That team is going to get absolutely devastated on defense. Cook/Kuz are below average defenders (Kuz at the PF especially). KCP has trouble guarding big SGs like DRoz, he would get destroyed against traditionally sized SFs.

Well I didn’t put the team together and until we make a trDe to get rid of some small guards for actual wing defenders that’s what we are going to have to live with. I don’t expect us to be that great on D until we fix this issue. And I’m not buying the Kuz hype as a 3 either. He was a trash defender there as well. I just don’t buy him suddenly becoming a good defender at either guard position nor do I buy this team as constructed being elite on D just because we had AD.

I actually think Kuz defends large wings better than he does traditional PFs.

I remember he put up some good fight on wing scorers while routinely getting destroyed by guys like Taj Gibson when he played PF.

When Rondo runs pick and roll/pop with AD. He makes AD arguably the most dominant offensive player in the league. Just pair his minutes with AD whenever LBJ rests, sit back, and watch the magic happen on offense.

Bradley - Caruso
I think Caruso is a better distributor type point guard for the second unit when Lebron is on the bench.

Unfortunately, I think Rondo and KCP are locks for the backup minutes assuming Bradley and Green start. Caruso's best bet is the backup SF minutes by virtue of Green sliding over.
