p.s. i am new to this board
On the contrary, having Steve would be perfect because he is a shoot first point guard. Alleviating his playmaking duties and handing it over to Odom reductes Steve to just another shooter or offensive threat which is what we need for the triangle.
p.s. I can tell by the ammoung of post
