There’s been some discussion since Jason Williams (that would be this Jason Williams, not that Jason Williams or this Jayson Williams) signed with the Magic yesterday about there being a point guard controversy in Orlando. You know, after he announced retirement a year ago.And now in a city with an All-Star point guard in Jameer Nelson who’s PER last year was 3.1 points higher than Williams’ highest in his career.Â Apparently, if you were popular at some point in the early to mid 00’s, you now qualify as a threat to a 27 year old All-Star.
So in the spirit of this new groundswell, here’s some other positional battles you can expect next season.
