    Default What rotation would you go with?

    With smith in the fold, i think the only way to get everyone in who has been contributing (not including davis and smith) is making smith the starting sg.
    once everyone is healthy
    Lin/Davis/douglas
    Smith/Shump/fields
    Melo/Fields/novak
    Stat/jeffries/novak
    chandler/harrellson/jeffries

    bibby gone

    what would yall do?

    Melo/novak/walker
    Stat/harrellson/jeffries
    chandler/jeffries/jordan

    assuming bibby and balkman out and walker in...
    shump either 2nd PG assuming Davis still out, and an alternative to Fields/JR smith.

    I still think Smith should be 6th man and Fields a starter.

    I think we would have to start JR

    If JR does not start, it means he only comes in when Melo or Landry go to the bench, which I think is not the best way to maximize his talents.

    Landry would be better off the bench to replace JR and Melo

    Until BDiddy comes back, Shump can also come in to cover PG, SG and SF

    I assume Walker will be taking over The Chemist role from Balkman or Bibby now

    haha I wasn't trying to poke fun at you. I'm saying it would be great if it were possible for us to beat Lebron and the Heat in a NBA finals. Send those guys home packing on our terms.

    As much as that would be amazing.. hopefully we can still do that in the Conference Finals and get the same feeling

    oh ok i see lol my apologies but in all seriousness

    When Healthy

    Lin/baron
    Fields/Jr/Shump
    Melo/Novak
    Stat/Jorts
    Chandler/Jeffries

    Lin & Fields have pretty nice chemistry together. I also feel Fields gives Lin extra confidence when they play together, we shouldn't disrupt that.

    JR can be that sixth man we need off the bench, he will also get a chance to have more shots coming off the bench, than he would have if he was playing with the starters. Lin,Melo,Stat,Jr? theres only one basketball

    if Baron comes back healthy no doubt he can set JR up with open looks just as good as Lin can. then you have Novak and Jorts spreading the floor making it even easier on everyone.

    Novak playing exceptionally well, you dont really want mins taken away from him

    Shumpert might see less mins, but we didn't really bring him here for scoring we brought him for Defense so depending on our matchup he could see an extended amount of play time

    but come playoffs ill insert JR in the starting lineup in a heartbeat

    What you think the rotation should look like?

    This is what I'd do

    PG Lin/Baron Davis
    SG Fields/JR
    SF Melo/Shump
    PF Amare/Novak/Jorts
    C Chandler/Jeffries/Amare

    Yes I'd go with a guard lineup off the bench, I think Fields deserves to start and Baron can be the play maker keep things under control dictate who gets the ball, while JR is the main scorer and the 6th man, Shumpert should be coming off the bench at this stage in his career and his defense can be used to lock down the other teams 6th man.

    That is the exact lineup I would go with.

    Yeah it would be a bit pointless to start JR as then we would be starting our 5 best scorers all at the same time.

    once everyone is healthy
    Lin/Davis/douglas
    Smith/Shump/fields
    Melo/Fields/novak
    Stat/jeffries/novak
    chandler/harrellson/jeffries

    bibby gone

    what would yall do?
    as bad as douglas had been playing, he has been better than Bibby, who's shooting is even worse than Douglas.

    Bibby just lost his shot and has no confidence anymore.

    Once Melo comes back and we welcome in J.R Smith, the points guards should be in this order on the depth chart:
    Lin
    Davis
    Shumpert
    Douglas

    I think Bill Walker, Douglas, Balkman, and Bibby won't be on this team next year so I can see Walker Douglas and Balkman being traded with Bibby getting cut.

    Can't wait to see Smith on this team. He jocks it but we need outside shooters.

    A bench with Davis, Smith, Shumpert, Novak, and Harrelson/Jeffries is solid.
