As for Rip... The problem I see with his style and AI is that if AI is dashing around, defenders are going to be around. If they are around, there's less room for Rip to run around and use picks to get open for those open jump shots. I'm very interested to see how this is going to work. I would hate to see him lose the Reggie Miller style and be a spot up shooter somewhere.
You've got the Billups of 2004 in your head still. He's lost a step and a half and that was BEFORE he got hurt and didn't play the rest of the series.
