The shooting guard position is where it becomes tricky. Coming in at age 33, after a whole season off due to a knee injury, Jason Richardson is still my starter at the two guard. There are some specific reasons as to why he is in the starting lineup. One of them being his veteran leadership and know-how. The Sixers are one of the youngest teams in the league, and Jason Richardson can bring poise in big situations. The second reason is, he can play basketball. He is not the player he once was, but he still knows how to play the game and can average 10-13 points per game.
