That's fair.Before accusing me of addressing a fake hypothetical, maybe read the language I bolded in the post I was responding to and quoted. That poster explicitly declared that we have “two better point guards” than Smart.
Based on the substance of your post, I think we agree. White should play a bit more, although he’s already playing the most among our pg at 33 mpg. The thing is, those minutes should come from Brogdon (or Hauser and the rest of the bench), not Smart.
A lot of this is situation, opponent, and matchups. Smart is a much better defender than Malcolm but isn't his best against small, quick guards like Young. Malcolm is a better rebounder than MS and I can see why people may want a combo of Brogdon + White with Derrick guarding Trae.
