    Default Just for fun- Creative lineups

    Think of a lineup that may spark some conversation when its used at some point this year. Not a starting lineup, but a combination of players that JOB might decide to use for one reason or another.

    TJ Ford
    Jarret Jack
    Brandon Rush
    Shawne Williams
    Roy Hibbert

    If Hibbert can maximize all the strengths he has right now, he is the perfect type of center to play a small ball team with. I think JOB is going to use Ford/Jack at the same time every once and a while.

    Here's my best defensive lineup:

    PG - Jack
    SG - Rush
    SF - Granger
    PF - Foster
    C - Rasho / Hibbert

    My "super quick" lineup:

    PG - Ford
    SG - Jack
    SF - Granger
    PF - Baston
    C - Foster

    My "garbage time" lineup:

    PG - Diener
    SG - Graham
    SF - Shawne
    PF - Baston
    C - McRoberts

    Then there's my "NBA 2k9 finishers" lineup ( but in reality, I will likely be using the Blazers more often then not )

    PG - Marquis
    SG - Dunleavy
    SF - Rush
    PF - Granger
    C - Hibbert

    Cuz Granger is one of the better defenders on the team? He, at least, is a better defender the Dunleavy is.

    I'd like to see this one a bit:

    Ford
    Rush
    Dunleavy
    Granger
    Rasho/Foster/Hibbert.

    To get even more offensive minded you could throw Troy in at the 5.

    I think we'll see a backcourt of Diener/Jack more than once this year, but hopefully not during any of the 70 games that Ford plays.

    I'd also be interested to see how a Jack/Quis/Rush combo would play together. It'd be very strong defensively, but I don't know what the offense would look like.
