Put Stuckey On The Wing


I've been beating this dead horse for years.  Stuckey is significantly better when attacking the basket from the wing, than he is from the top.  I have to statistical evidence to back it up.  It's just an eyeball thing.  Last night's game against Sacramento was a great example.  And pistonpowered.com did a great right up about it in their recap.

Now, I know Kuester has infinitely more knowledge about the game of basketball than I do.  But, it boggles my mind that we don't see more of it.  Both Stuckey and Gordon (to me) are better off coming off-screens.  Both are prone to evils of over-dribbling when they have the ball in their hands.

Ever since the AI days, I've been advocating (in absence of a Princeton/Triangle motion offense) for having Prince and Daye at the top with Stuckey, BG and Rip coming off screens.  Both Prince and Daye are good passers.  They can shoot the three well enough to keep the defense from sagging down to jam things up.  They have the height to see over the defense.

A lot of people on this site, poo-pooed the idea of using Prince as a point-forward during the AI days, I wonder if that's changed.
