Jamal could start but its not even about starting really as I mentioned earlier this year its about age,career longevity, and stamina. If jamal starts his minutes tend to spike and at 34 he could easily play 3 more seasons at this level if his minutes are monitored.
It has nothing to do with isolations he is proven by now that he can score in every imaginable way and it ain't about defense either as throughout this season his Def. rating has been ,
for the year he is at 102.8 while james Hardens is 102.3.
let me add that I'm not saying jamal is better or even as good harden but he has given this team top ten sg in the league play whether he has started or come of the bench. that is why I think he should win 6th man this year not simply because he is having a good year for a bench player like some of the other guys but because Jamal has been one of the best players at his position this year. He Is even gotten better defensively in Doc's system this year which most thought was impossible
