Point Gawds.

The phrase “point guard by committee” was redefined last season. Look it up in the dictionary and you’ll see profiles of Dan Dickau, Brevin Knight, Smush Parker, and good ol’ Sam Cassell. In other words, you had a journeyman, slow footed Gonzaga product (Dickau), a tiny, injury prone distributor (Knight), a prehistoric creature on his last leg who was eventually bought out (Cassell)…and Smush fuckin’ Parker (does he even need an explanation?). Can any team survive with that PG core? 23 wins says NO.

Blast ahead to this upcoming season: we have Baron Davis, Jason Williams, Jason Hart, and Mike Taylor. Again, in other words, there lies a dynamic All-Star PG who comes through in the clutch (Davis), a serviceable, exciting backup (Williams), a hard nosed, steady point man with size (Hart), and a lightning quick project with a huge vertical (Taylor). See the difference? As a matter of fact, J-Will will probably be one of the best backup PG’s in the league. And Taylor would’ve started quite a few games last season.

Now onto the best highlights I could find on each of them:

Boom Dizzle.

White Chocolate.

J-Hart (ok, he’s getting punked by Amare, but it’s all I could find, lol).

Mike Taylor in the D-League dunk contest. He’s got major ups.
