i agree. there really should be no discussion in him being the actual backup point this upcoming season. he has WAY too much competition for the backup PG spot and we have a boatload of guards in general to mix and match lineups to put Joseph in there. he has to outplay Mills, De Colo, and even Ginobili as backup PG (having him be a SG on offense for a few plays, so he has to be a reliable shooter). the odds are stacked against the kid this season.
