Sookie, I don't see how you could want DJones back after seeing that Dallas game. He was awful, and we got to see one of his classic moves where he goes overly physical for no good reason and then wonders what the call was about (when he literally grabbed and threw Tyler down). Green and Young have much better defensive footwork than Jones and are good at staying in front of people. Jones was living on rep and the chair pull. If DJones wasn't hitting 3s last year people would have been sick of him.
Augustine without a doubt has been a disaster, but it's not like Collison didn't struggle against Hill. DC is a case of grass is greener. Yes he's better now than DJ is, but Mahinmi is also better than Lou and at the end of the year they can let Augustine walk.
I mean the Pacers have one good win and it was against a team featuring Collison at point.
Let's see DC put up nice numbers at the point with Roy playing like he is plus Danny out. We know what Hill can do with Roy and Danny because we saw it last year. It's not like this is Hill's first chance.
And Collison still lets guys leave him on defense just about as badly as Augustine.
DC was okay, but he was just a smaller, less physical and defensive version of Hill. DC has never been a great court vision passer and still isn't. And Dallas isn't exactly kicking everyone's butt. Their schedule has been pretty soft so far, at least for the wins.
