Honestly, Thibs is more the focus of my ire over this. He had a master distributor with a massive BBIQ and one of the best defensive points in the league in the middle of 3 scorers. Thibs unloaded him for a draft pick and signed a shoot first PG with a low BBIQ and a terrible defender, eating up considerably more cap space in the process. faTeague is just the symptom. Thibs is the disease.
The single most obvious blown move on so many levels. And for most this is not MMQBing, so to speak. Once we got Butler, there was absolutely no reason to make that move, there aren't enough backetballs, AND Rubio would control the ball enough that Butler wouldn't have to be expending as much energy controlling the ball for entire possessions.
I still don't get how so many think Teague is worse than Rubio? I haven't seen one thing to prove it yet. They each have their plus and minuses and Teague has played well against CPIII.....Rubio has done the same against Russ.
I want both guards to succeed and I liked Rubio but he has his faults just like Teague just in different areas.
TBH I am FaTeagued about the conversation moreso than the play of either guard.
I was probably more of a Teague supporter than most here at the beginning. Not that I favored getting rid of Rubio, but I was resigned to change being inevitable in sports.
Teague wore me down though with a looong mid-season stretch of perplexing mediocre play. Beyond mediocre, he was just plain bad at times.
He does seem to have turned it around of late, but I need to see a lot more of that before I can get totally behind him.
At times I have seen very little movement of the Offensive set.....almost like they are resting during the first 10 seconds of the set. I saw that they pushed the ball more against the Rockets last game, almost like they don't want to run a set play.
