Wow - chap - I havn't read a post from you in 6 months and you come out with this? Where have you been this early Suns season???
Wise is young. Wise will make mistakes. Yet his command of the offense, shooting, and scrappy defensive pressure has been sorely needed over the last five years (see the shakur era). We don't need a PG to be dominant and score 35 by any means. We DO need someone to make good decisions and make open threes. Our stars have been our wings since Bibby left.
I am very happy with what I saw of him today. I don't buy what Lavin said when "we are seeing the emergence of a star". Rather IMO we finally have a PG that will be tough in Pac-10 play and can take us deep in the tournament by beaing steady and occasionally catching fire.
Its dependent on the continued emergence of Hill and Wise but this team could be stiff competition for UCLA and at the least a strong number two in the best conference in america. Thats nothing to sneeze at.
At least now I am excited to see how this all plays out.
