    BK Stuck Tay JJ Monroe

    Three guard rotation with English with spotminutes for Bynum. Singler is first of the bench at SF and Tay should not play over 30 min, more like 25. GM moves to PF when Drummond or Krav plays C. Max gets the last few minutes at PF. Khris and Daye play spot minutes and garbage time (or Wallace, if he is back). Chaz and Maggy in street clothes.

    Knight/Stuckey/Tay/Maxiell/Monroe

    It was their best lineup last year and it will be their best lineup to start this year.

    I will be interested to see how they use Monroe while Drummond gets up to speed. Will they start him at the 5 or try to play him mostly at the 4.

    Aside from Knight and Monroe I don't really cares who starts as long as it isn't CCG or Daye.

    I'd love it if they could bring Sammy Meija to camp to mentor Kenny English.

    Agree with Laimbrane - but assuming Kravtsov is actually ready, I would like to see this:

    BK
    Stuck
    JJ
    Monroe
    Kravtsov

    Knight-Maggette-Prince-Monroe-Drummond/VyKra

    We gotta feature Maggette so we can trade him for some value this year. Plus, he gives us size.
    As much as I hate palm-ball-3pt offense of his, there still hasn't been a player on the roster that has earned the starting SF spot away from Tay; even though I'd love to see JJ at that spot.

    We have size now, it'll be foolish to not use it, so Drummond or Vykra should start along with Monroe.

    Stuckey-English-JJ-CV-Drummond/Vykra is your second unit. Nothing can make up for CV's horrid defense, but at least he'll be going up against second tier PFs and the rest of the team are decent defensively. You still have good size and a well balanced team. One of our biggest weakness last year was our second unit blowing leads or digging huge holes. With no more of that Bynum/Gordon horse doo-doo, we should have a better time this year.

    Maxiell will fill in when Drummond/VyKra will get in the inevitable rookie big man foul troubles. Either that or Singler coming in at the 3 and JJ filling that void.

    Daye, Bynum, and whoever else is left would be in street clothes.

    Yea, well you left out one human equation. The challenge of counterbalancing the quite-not-right.

    CV is challenged like never before and hence, probably never again. Never forget, that a lot of personal internal dynamics are working their way out for his whole conception on how astute observers render him....and understanding the way of his tweets.

    Gone wild, this fellow can average 25 pts. per game as a singular direction.

    The delta of a concentrated stream flow can drop meandering deposits of the lesser rich topsoil and still enrich secondary seeds. It is no longer shelled into a continious talent, but understands the external flow of using the dynamics of concentrated focus.

    Meaningful existence means how rich your presence reality constructs on a time scale.

    Let me make it easy for all.

    Book it...he will be starting.

    and he understands about stepping into the same stream twice no matter what the flow.

    Like the delta............I do not see the flow being controlled, and will result in the valuable seed being whisked away.

    The delta is the end result of accumulation. It needs cultivation. Remember, all deltas are habitual cycles, like most of us (thought I would sneak that in).

    So you see the seed being buried in valuable silt at the end of the delta ? :) I see it being carried away............more linear than cyclical.
