    Default Who gets the minutes?

    Let's take a stab at who should get the most minutes this year (regarding the guys whose minutes are uncertain. To do that I'm omitting JO, Granger and Tinsley from this little contest.)

    Who should be the next FOUR top minute getters?

    This doesn't mean that those not named won't get any minutes, just not enough to make the top four. This also doesn't include injuries. We are assuming everyone stays healthy.

    My view on the four--in descending order--who should get the most minutes after JO, Granger, and Tins are:

    1. Marquis Daniels
    2. Mike Dunleavey
    3. Ike
    4. Foster

    That doesn't mean Murphy, Shawn, Travis and others won't get minutes. They just shouldn't be in the top four (or top seven, including JO, Granger, Tins).

    Again, this is not a prediction of who WILL get those minutes, it's your two cents on who SHOULD get those minutes.

    I'd prefer to name 5.

    1. Troy
    2. Dunleavy
    3. Daniels
    4. Ike
    5. Shawne

    Dunleavy
    Foster
    Daniels
    Ike

    I'd like to see Murphy limited to 15 min., and J.O. at around 32 with Foster, and Ike getting the remainder of the 4/5 minutes. Ike's in his 3rd year, we need to give him the chance to show he was worth a lottery pick. Daniels is too versatile to be limited to less then 20 min.

    If I were coach the next 4 would probably look like this:

    Quis
    Dunleavy
    Foster
    Rush

    ...Shawne just misses the cut

    I take Shawne over Ike because partly I think Shawne is better and partly because Shawne can hit the 3 which fits JOB's scheme better.

    I think it depends on how deep O'B's rotation will be. If this team really runs, the rotation may go 12 deep.

    Assuming a running team and healthy players, the rotation will be something like this (assigning actual minutes to everyone):

    Danny 35
    Jermaine 32
    Troy 25
    Dun 25
    Tins 30

    Shawne 14
    Ike 14
    Jeff 20
    Marquis 18
    Travis 10
    Kareem 14

    Graham/Owens/Harrison 3

    Total Minutes 240
