    Default YOU are Rick Carlisle for the day

    OK enough emphasis on the off season. How bout a pivotal game 5 in NJ tomorrow night?

    I feel it is safe to say the winner of game 5 goes on to win the series.

    So, what starting line up would YOU put out there if you were coach. Forget the, Rick will never do that crap, just put what you would like to see and who is first off the bench.

    My thoughts:

    PG: AJ, just keep playing baby, lets not turn the ball over like game 4,K?
    Sarunas, Anything but Tinjury here.
    SG: Jax, keep up the d and no complaining
    Freddy, be that explosive guy off of the bench
    SF: Peja, we need to you spread the defense for our bigs!
    Danny, continue to do the voodoo that you do so well.
    PF: Jermaine, use your driving ability, you know they won't let you bang down low.
    Foster, look to center to see why.
    C: Hulk, it is your job to man the low post so Jermaine can rome and be the player that he is supposed to be. Hopefully this will alleviate JO's fould trouble, and oh yeah, knock Carter on his arse the first time through the lane!
    Pollard, OK funny guy, when you and Foster go in there is one goal, See the ball? GO GET THE BALL!!!

    Austin: We need you to be our 9th man, if anyone from Peja to Foster gets in foul trouble, it is up to you to pull through.

    Remember, this has no bearing to Rick's tendencies, it is just what YOU THE COACH FOR A DAY wants to see.

    I start:

    Johnson
    Jackson
    Granger (I'm assuming Peja is out)
    O'Neal
    Pollard

    Off the bench I play Harrison, Croshere, Jones, and Jasikevicius

    Hicks

    I'd bench Jackson & go with Fred.

    Let Jones know that he can play as long as he wants as long as he goes to the rack. He starts settling for mid-range or 3's then he can set down. I'd like to try to get some of the Nets in foul trouble in the first quarter, I think Jones would help with this more than Jackson.

    I'd start Peja if he's ready, if not Granger.

    Harrison backs up Pollard & Croshere spells O'Neal.

    JO does NOT play center!

    I'd finally throw out the 5-point "Star" lineup Rick's teased us with all year:

    Tinsley
    Cabbage
    Gill
    Johnson
    Jones

    Might as well have some fun!

    I'd throw out the wild card to start

    C - O'Neal
    F - Croshere
    F - Peja (he'd better play)
    G - Jackson
    G - Johnson

    Why Croshere? Because him playing with Peja (which better play) will make it easier for Jermaine to get off to a much needed fast start on the offensive end. I think we play better when we're not playing from behind in the beginning.

    I can see Jermainiac's response now.....

    If I were Rick Carlisle for the day, I would:

    - quit my job immediately and apologize to the PD fans for running such a rigid offense.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Ha ha ha!

    What a thought.

    Interesting thought with Croshere starting, only concern is who plays interior defense if Krstic is being guarded by Oneal. I can just see Carter and RJ pinning their ears back.

    If I were Carlisle for a day, I would do what he did once Tinsley was out of the picture.

    Starting Lineup

    PG - AJ
    SG - SJax
    SF - Peja
    PF - JONeal
    C - Foster

    2nd unit

    PG - Sarunas
    SG - Freddie
    SF - Granger
    PF - Croshere
    C - Harrison

    Essentially the same as what he has done in the past.....play the 1st unit with the starters...and the 2nd unit with the backup players.

    I still believe that the backup players ( especially Harrison ) plays much better with Sarunas then with AJ. This means that we will still have the rigid substitution patterns that many of us like. The only thing I would do different would be to "ride the hot hand" and substitute out players that get into foul trouble. Once the "hot hand" is cooled off...then I would move the entire 1st/2nd unit out.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Yeah, last game, he broke a 'sweat.' And that's a real shame, too.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Well it's a little less stressful to just shoot the jumpshot instead of staring at the basket til it starts to look smaller. No wonder he broke a sweat...

    First, JO plays 48 minutes. I don't care if he gets 5 fouls in the first 3:10, he stays in every single minute. This is the time you either earn your max contract or don't.

    Harrison
    O'Neal
    Granger
    Jackson
    Johnson

    backed up by:

    Pollard
    Foster
    Peja (If available)
    Jones
    Jasikevicius

    If anyone can remember, the Pollard/Foster/Peja Frontcourt was arguably the best front court of the season.

    I like your lineup allot, but I would bet it will look more like this

    Johnson
    Jackson
    Granger
    Croshere
    O'Neal

    If I was Rick Carlisle I would quit my job, tell Jamaal Tinsley that I'm sorry for ruining him and his career. And go coach a girls college team.

    I would also thank Jermaine O'Neal for letting me coach him for 3 years.

    Hmm no JO, no Peja, no Jeff (I think), no Tinsley (What else is new?), i'd go with:

    Johnson
    Jones
    Granger
    Croshere
    Pollard

    Have Jackson as the 6th man followed by Saras and Harrison.

    I move Jackson to the bench. Why? With Peja and JO out, you have to try something different. I do this in hopes of Freddie and Danny being able to keep RJ and Vince under control and midway through the first or so, I put Stephen in. I would do this in hopes of Vince and RJ, whoever is guarding Stephen, being a little worn out and hopefully Stephen can get a hot hand because when Stephen gets on a roll, watch out!

    It was a toss up to start David or Croshere. David would give us a guy who can get to the line but I put Croshere in there because he plays well when he starts.

    Obviously slow the game down, crash the boards, and get back on defense.

    I thought Jermaniac was right-on.

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
