OK, I want everyone's opinion on who you think our starting 5 should be, and who you think JVG will start this season. One option with Battier as starting PF (for teams like Phoenix, and LAL), and another with either Hayes, Howard, or Novak. I am pretty sure we will have Battier start on some nights. OK. My starting 5: PG-Alston (if Sura is not healthy) SG-T-Mac (I'm not confident in Snyder, Span is a no-body as far as I'm concerned) SF-Battier PF-Hayes C - Yao My starting 5 with Battier as PF: PG-Alston (hmm I'm not sure if we should start Sura now that I think about it. He is very injury prone and that will just hurt us come playoff time) SG-Head SF-T-Mac PF-Battier C-Yao -------------------------------- Now who I think JVG will start: PG-Alston SG-T-Mac SF-Battier PF-Howard C- Yao JVG with Battier as our PF: PG-Alston SG-Snyder SF-T-Mac PF-Battier C-Yao I am very interested in what everyone thinks our starting 5 will be, and who they think JVG will start. Like I said, if Sura is healthy we should limit his minutes and save him for the playoffs. If Snyder can prove himself that would really help us a lot, because he can guard the Kobes, Rajas, and other SGs with smaller PFs. This would allow T-Mac to play SF, and Shane to play PF. V-Span...I'm just going to wait and see. There are already to many ifs. Just like last season.
