    The way Canaan can shoot, it will be hard to keep him off the floor with Dwight playing center.

    Agreed. Canaan is the best shooter of the 3. I feel like he can be Dwight's new Jameer Nelson. It will be very interesting to see the season play out if Lin and Bev can't hit their 3's.

    None are starting caliber, but Beverley is the best of the bunch.

    Lin keeps his position unless traded. Him driving and throwing alleys to dwight will be hard to stop

    You only say this because you have yellow fever Chandler.

    I am not the biggest Lin fan. But with his ability to penetrate and get in the lane and Dwight in the middle I envision lots of alley oops from that combo. I cant wait for this season to start.

    Canaan is the obvious choice even he has not played a single NBA minute.

    lin has the starting spot and lion share of minutes until he's traded. may not be what's best on court but its best for asset management. don't want to lower his value when his contract is already hard to trade.

    Lin, he didn't play that great last season, but I think he will play better this season, and he'll be a great fit with Howard.

    Lin gave indications last season that he is going to be an outstanding 3pt shooter. He is easily the best of the 3 point guards at finishing around the rim and easily the best P&R point guard on the team. I think Jeremy will be a very good fit next season if he is still on the Rockets. He only has 2 years left on his contract and and he is very young so I'm pulling for him.

    Beverley is certainly the best defender and the best rebounder. How can you not love this guy but I don't think he is as good as Lin when Lin is healthy.

    Issiah might be the best shooter of the bunch but he has yet to play a single NBA game and there was a reason he was a 2nd round pick. Maybe he will be the Chandler Parsons version of a 2nd round drafted point guard for Daryl Morey.

    With D12 or Asik in the post all of these guys should be an effective defender if they are willing to close out hard on their player on the perimeter knowing they have post protection at all times. They should rarely have to play off the player they are defending.

    Beverley doesn't even look like he wants to shoot the ball, and yet he shot almost 37% from the point range last year. Lin looks like he could be a good three point shooter, and I think he will improve. Don't know much about Canaan, but he looks like a natural scorer in the highlight films. Overall, I think we look very solid at PG. We have three guys that all do different things well.
