I've run into this situation and few times and was never really sure how to handle it.
Say I have 2 guards that start,
player 1: has very good scoring attributes (max spd and per, high bh and pass), but defensively, he can be a major liability (very low defense and ath). Yes I know someone will probably say he shouldn't start, so lets move past that.
player 2: Has high ath, def, spd, some ability to score etc, but his bh and pass are very low, like in the 20's to 30's.
Naturally I'd play player 1 at the pg and player 2 at the sg and it works since often the opponent has an elite scorer that is not against player 1, but how should I handle it when there is an elite scorer against my weak defender and the backup is not an option because of the production I would lose. Also, I have the option to double team this elite scorer and my other players are good enough defenders to make up for the weak player.
What I want to know is
1. If I were to just switch player 1 and player 2 at the pg and sg spots for matchups, would player 2's low bh and pass hurt my team anymore at pg than when he was playing at sg? Keep in mind he's starting either way, but just not sure of the impact of moving him over to a position where handling the ball is important.
2. On the double team, who is the 2nd person coming to assist in any of these situations? Normally the pbp just reads player x shoots/passes etc out of the double team.
