    Default Who would you start?

    Next game is Tuesday. No Tinsley, no O'Neal. Who do you start?

    For me:

    Jasikevicius (though I know it will be AJ)
    Jackson
    Stojakovic
    Granger
    Harrison

    As I already said I expect Anthony Johnson to get the starting nod tonight, but I'd rather keep the pecking order of Tinsley, Saras, and AJ, instead of having AJ leapfrog to the starting 1.

    Granger needs to start. I think unless we're playing a huge team, he can handle himself at the 4, though he's best at 3. Theoretically we can put him at 3 when Peja goes out, and bring Cro in at that time.

    Well, this has exactly 0% chance of happening, but I would go with the following:

    PG Sarunas
    SG Jones
    SF Peja
    PF Granger
    C Harrison

    Jackson, AJ, and Cro can be the scorers off the bench.

    Sarunas
    Jones
    Peja
    Granger
    Croshere

    In any case, I would like Saras to play PG at the same time as Peja is on court. That should be the best way to utilize them both in the long term.

    Who I think will start:
    AJ
    Jack
    Peja
    Cro
    Hulk

    Who I wish would start:
    Runi
    Jack -- Fred off the bench is much better
    Granger
    Cro
    Hulk

    I wouldnt mind seeing Peja in the 2nd Unit these first few games. That'd bring plenty of energy!

    PG: Runi, although no way in hades is this gonna happen, he's our future leader in my opinion and what better time to get his feet wet than now
    SG: Jack, even though i think Freddy has become a better 2 guard I can see Jacko throwing a if he got demoted to the bench, plus theres no guarantee he will bring the scoring punch freddie does off the bench
    SF: Strokavich
    PF: Granger, the thing that scares me most about the trade is dangers minutes suffering, gotta start him Rick !!
    C: HULK SMASH, We have no other choice plus he had his most impressive game of the season against cleveland, but are the refs ever gonna cut this guy any slack ?? One more thing, STAY ON YOUR FEET SON, your 7 feet tall. Although i like his aggressivness it can also be his greatest weakness.

    Sarunas - want to see him and Peja together
    Peja - Why not see if he can play the 2.
    Granger - I really don't like seeing him play the 4
    Croshere - love his effort, can rebound, spread the floor, and drive
    Harrison - he needs time to develop

    I agree with the general sentiment of saras, jack, peja, granger, and harrison.

    Saras - I would be intrigued to see him and Peja on court together. Imagine two great shooters who love ball movement.
    Jack - I think he works better as a 2 and can guard 2s as well.
    Peja - We're gonna need his scoring and shooting off the bat.
    Danny - I think he can handle the 4. Besides, this is the best way to ensure his getting minutes.
    Harrison - Same as Danny. Needs minutes to grow.

    I like it, but I'd start AC still. Bring Granger off the bench because ya know he is going to bring it whenever he's inserted, Cro needs to get off right away, imo.

    Those of you not starting Peja need to explain that for me.

    Foster
    Cro
    Peja
    Jax
    Saras
    These are the players that have earned it. I could live with Granger staring at the 4, but I'm not sure we want to experiment right now.


    We'll see
    Harrison
    Cro
    Peja
    Jax
    Johnson

    Granger, Foster, Saras, and Jones will complete the 9 man rotation. All Harrison is good for is 15-18 min., so I'd rather see that coming off the bench. I'd like to see Johnson down to 10 min. with the rest going to Saras, but that won't happen either.

    But... since that ain't happening...
    Saras
    Jax
    Peja
    Granger
    Harrison

    C - Harrison
    F - Croshere
    F - Granger
    G - Jackson
    G - AJ
    ----

    Hicks, instead of throwing Peja out there I'm thinking we should work him into the lineup. This doesn't mean he can't get 30 minutes either. This just gives Croshere the opportunity to start - where he's more effective, and get him into a flow if possible. If Croshere doesn't get off to a good start, then we can go with Peja while sliding Granger to the 4. This also gives us a stronger second unit.

    If we had JO, I'd have Peja starting.

    Yes, let's keep SJax in the starting lineup. We need more 6 of 20 shooting performances, a high turnover to assist ratio, along with temper tantrums and technical fouls.

    Since our next game is against Washington, I see no reason we shouldn't play Granger at the PF spot. He would be matched up against Jamison, and I like that. It's not like he'll be overpowered or something.

    AJ IS NOT A STARTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

    Default Re: Who would you start?

    PG: Saras
    SG: Jackson
    SF: Peja
    PF: Croshere
    C: Foster

    6th man: Freddie
    - Granger
    - AJ
    - Harrison

    Saras and Croshere get the starting nods because I think that they will play well with Peja and Jackson. We go for a high scoring starting unit here. Foster is there to try and clear the glass, assuming he is healthy. I can't keep track of everyone that is injured anymore.

    Freddie is the 6th man because he is the most versatile and reliable bench player. Granger comes off the bench due to Croshere playing better as a starter. This does not mean Granger wouldn't get more minuates though. Harrison comes off the bench to save his 6 fouls for later on in the game.

    Jackson
    Stojakovic
    Granger
    Harrison

    Rotating in:

    Johnson
    Jones
    Croshere
    Foster

    This lineup probably won't happen, so I think

    C: Hulk
    PF: Danger
    SF: Peja
    SG: Wacko Jacko
    PG: Beetle Juice

    As much as I despise Jacko and become nautious at AJ's play on offense, we need a 1-2 punch with Fred and Saras coming off the bench.
