    Question Mark Starting Lineup

    What does everybody think the starting line up is gonna be Tuesday in Miami? I think to give us a boost over the Heat, we need the following starters...

    PG - Chris Duhon
    SG - Nate Robinson
    SF - Al Harrington
    PF - David Lee
    C - Darko Milicic

    We need Duhon to cover Chalmers (That should be an easy matchup)
    Nate Robinson can match Wade in scoring and keep him busy
    Al Harrington has an easy advantage over the mentally troubled Michael Beasley
    David Lee & Darko Milicic can provide us with the necessary strength we need in the paint against Haslem and O'neal

    And if we need a boost off the bench, just call on Douglas's Defense, Gallo's 3 point shooting, & Chandler's toughness. Lets hope on a great playoff push from our boys

    What do you guys think should be the lineup in Miami?

    It's fun to play around with the line up. So I'm gonna throw the eventual lineup (not immediate) of Duhon, Chandler (once his handle and agression improve), Gallo (once he that gets much needed quick step and strength),Harrington and Darko (his presence is essential on both sides of the court). Then you'd have a ton of energy and scoring flying off the bench with Douglas, Nate, Lee and Jeffries. Of course, it's an alternative I'm throwing because I don't want to be undersized right out of the tip by having Duhon and Nate. Both the starters and the guys coming out of the bench will provide intensity on D and consistent offense.

    Of course it'll never happen, Lee has to start (by what was shown on the preseason he'll most likely start at the 4 and JJ at the 5). Chandler will be at the 3. My doubt is at the SG. Mike D has been hinting Lil Nate as a starter, but there's no way to tell what will happen. Of course, as it has been said: who finishes is much more important than who starts.

    I'm sorry but Nate would get ate up by Wade in every way... start Chandler to give us a chance at stopping him on D.

    Darko isn't gonna start at all... especially since he never did in preseason.

    Duhon
    Nate
    Will
    AL
    DLee

    Is this a serious statement or a joke?

    PG- Duhon
    SG- Nate
    SF- Chandler
    PF- Harrington
    C- Lee

    I really don't like this lineup but it's the one we'll start with this season. I really think we need to move Chandler/Nate for a legit SG to contend for the playoffs.

    I agree with this line-up. Just because Darko didn't start during the preseason don't mean a thing. The preseason isn't setup to figure out who you are going to start, but to give some of the new players and rookies time to adjust to the team and coach. The preseason doesn't count for anything.

    I hope not, so I can make it my sig for being the Dumbest Post I have seen in my two years!

    We should use my 2K starting five

    Duhon (no other choice)
    Chandler
    Harrington
    Lee
    Darko

    My lone concern is that I think Darko is one of those players who looks better as a bench player than a starter, but I would love to be wrong about that!

    If dantoni was smart he will start a real center with good defense this what I don't understand sometimes he just baffles me with these starting line ups and he knows milicic defense is better than jefferies I wanna win not experiment.

    According to Alan Hahn's blog D'Antoni confirmed that Al Harrington, Jared Jeffries, David Lee, Wilson Chandler and Duhon will start in the season opener.

    Case closed.

    Thats a better lineup then what Mike D is going to put out there. For some reason Mike D has a hard-on for Jeffries all this time and hasn't realized how valuable Darko is to this team.
