I have a few questions guys. I know some points have already been discussed but I hope to add a little something to this debate with these questions. I guess it's a "Boom or Bust" thread that I'm trying to start but I put my brain and heart into it .
Do you guys see a Rivers/Gordon backcourt playing like the ex-GSW backcourt Curry/Ellis?
I haven't watched GSW enough but I remember some games with Ellis and Curry combined for 50 pts or more.
Do you see that happening in NOLA?
Was this ex-GSW backcourt work out well in terms of Wins?
We won't be a "Run and Gun" team, and since we are playing defense.
I definitely see our offense being much more explosive with Rivers and EG, so Monty should make sure these 2 get enough PT on the floor together to create that chemistry that we are hoping for. I'm not opening another thread on "Rivers should start", I'm just saying that Vasquez should be able to facilitate the offense of the second unit since he is the better passer, to make sure our points production doesn't drop that much when the starters take a break. I expect the Vasquez/Mason backcourt on the floor being a real threat from 3. Monty last season put Jack on the second unit to boost the second unit. But again, Rivers needs time...
It's only speculation, I'm not in Monty's head and I'm not a NBA coach either.
What do y'all think?
