I have to agree that this will be our opening-night starting line-up. It was the line-up we finished the season went, and that line-up won four of six games. The only roster change from last season is the drafting of Jay, and why should a rookie start ahead of a guy who was pretty successful as a starter last season?Originally posted by TripleDouble
Prediction for the lineup BC will start the season with:
The reason for this is that BC will be told (by Krause) to maintain JC's confidence and thus if he and JW are anywhere close JC will start.
Hassel will start because he is by far the best swingman defender on the team.
ERob, Fizer, and Williams will get from 24-30 minutes a night, filling out the eight man rotation.
whats more important, I do not believe there is a chance of a snowball in haites of us obtaining him....lol..there fore this should be our lineup to start out and bench players:Originally posted by truebluefan
Question? Why put him in the lineup if we dont have him?
IF no free agent big man is obtained, I think that is when you will see chandler slide over to the 5 and fizer and Baxter take over at the 4...of course with Bags coming in at center until he throws a "shoulder" into a little guard coming around the baseline and gets ejected!! LOL:laugh:Originally posted by DaBullz
SF ERob (or FA or trade)
They may play a 3 guard offense at times like the old 3peat team did (Pippen, Jordan, Harper), to bring in Crawford or JWil with the SF going out. This is when they'll play zone for sure Fizer and Baxter see regular time off the bench.
That's a 9-man rotation.
We BADLY need a backup center! If Curry gets in foul trouble, we're going to hurt all game long.
I agree kneepad. I dont think we do either. BC could very well do that.Originally posted by Kneepad
I don't believe this team has 5 guys who are head and shoulders better than the rest. For that reason, I could see BC not sticking with a set starting lineup from night to night. Considering just the players we have now, I think Rose and Curry are the only two guys who will consistently start night in and night out. Williams, Crawford, Chandler, Robinson, Hassell, and possibly Fizer could all get starts depending on matchups and who's playing well.
This might change as guys fall into roles and the team starts to jell.
