    Why don’t you get more relevant and change the question to Dame?

    He’s playing out position and with ball hogs

    pair him with Dame and Simmons and all is good.

    I don't know of any teams that can succeed with a 6'3" small forward. At least not in the NBA.

    It may be less a question of why Norm is starting than why he's not starting at shooting guard.

    Helluva start to the yr from Norm! in 28 minutes scoring a very efficient 18 PPG, shooting an incredible 52.4% and 45.7% from 3 and playin solid D. ANT Simons not far behind at 14 PPG (18 minutes) shooting 52.1% and 45.5% from 3 and playin better D than previously! These two guys are playin lights out, CJ's shooting stats very good as well and yeah I know its CJ but he is shooting well, given Dame's horrid start hats off to these guys

    Considering he is making less than Gary Trent who’s averaging 15.3ppg on .397/.365/.857 this year…yes not overpaid AT ALL. Glad the magic number wasn’t $20m/yr, which was what I was predicting.
