In the post-game show on FSN, SJax was asked how he felt about playing SF. His response was that he'd play anywhere to help the team win, but he was a "natural-born 2". Right now, our starting line-up essentially has 3 guys playing out of position (Sarunas at the 2, Jackson at the 3, and O'Neal at the 5). Plus, Granger has been getting the majority of his minutes, if not all, at the 4.
Now, with AJ getting banged up tonight (sprained ankle) and the emergence of my man-crush (Granger), doesn't it make sense to shuffle the line-up slightly?
I know our current starters have produced a few solid wins in a row, but assuming AJ is going to miss a few games, doesn't it make sense to switch our starting line-up as follows?
PG - Tins
SG - Jackson
SF - Granger
PF - Croshere
6th man - Sarunas
In the rotation - Jones, Foster
This way, we get Jackson and Granger playing their natural born positions. We have an uber-sub in Saras, plus a solid big man rotation. To me, this makes a lot of sense.
Do you think this could be something Carlisle would try? What are the weaknesses with this rotation?
