Seriously what was his other option? Putting Snow back in the starting lineup? We saw how well that worked.

If you want to give him credit for not doing something stupid, ok, but don't try to make this into some genius move.

Larry is half to blame. It's his stupid mentality that to play shooting guard, he must shoot jumpers.

The real change in the offense has nothing to do with Larry playing point, and everything to do with Larry being aggressive and driving and/or dishing.

I think Larry is playing well at the 1 mainly due to the fact opposing teams have to match their PG up with him. In all honesty, he's really not strong enough to play the 2, and since the ankle injury it seems he has lost some explosiveness and cant get by opposing 2s as good as he used to. He now has a physical advantage over PGs, whether it be a height advantage or just a strength advantage. He can see over the top of them, and can bump them more effectively when he's going to the basket.

His defense has been excellent @ the 1.
