Vaughn, who has started for us for quite a long time, now, is obviously out with a broken bone in his foot. Who do you, personally, want starting in his place?

Cliff and Veal would probably have trouble guarding 3's, but I decided to include them anyways.

I voted for Zoran, but I'm not sure.

maybe we want Buford to start, so he won't need to produce as much since Kidd and Vince are on the floor.

When Kidd or Vince sits, maybe we want Zoran to come off the bench because someone will need to fill Kidd's or Vince's void.

Just not sure.

i like veal either coming off the bench or starting in place of collins, but it will be great if we can see how well zoran does playing with kidd and carter for extended minutes. i have a feeling it will be a pleasant surprise.

I'd like to see Zoran get a shot just to see what he can do with the first unit. Mercer and Buford are too inconsistent. I wouldn't want to see a big lineup of Cliff or Veal with Collins and Krstic. We would get slaughtered by every team in the league on defense.

Zoran, in 3 position and make Vince the 2. This kid deserves a shot to start.
Best and Buford will have to remain the backup for the 1-2.
I don't think Mercer is ready yet.
Uncle Cliffy and Veal are much more effective backing up the 3-4.
My :twocents:

Good point I just saw in another post, Best took up Vaughn's minutes in the rotation.

Best... here is a chance that you were shorted on minutes in the season.

I think it will probably end up being Best...I like the idea of Robinson starting and Vince sliding to the two though. But Best did a good job coming in last night, he had five steals.

Woohoo!

1 of 2 to pick right...

NYPost.com is reporting...

Carter will move back to off-guard, with Brian Scalabrine starting at small forward tonight.
