Should we start Jake Voskuhl?



okay, here is the stupid idea of the day!

Jake Voskuhl played 6 minutes against Tim Duncan and went 2 - 4 for 4 points while Jamario Moon and Andrea Bargnani scored 2 each in 19 and 18 minutes. So, extrapalations show us that in 18 minutes, Jake would go 6 - 12 for 12 points and probably grab a couple of rebounds due to his career stats:

Quote:
Voskuhl, 31, has averaged 4.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 412 regular-season NBA games with Chicago, Phoenix, Charlotte and Milwaukee
So, here is a thought that might shake the guys up a bit. Start Jake at Center since he seems to enjoy the low post, move Jermaine to the 4 and let Chris Bosh work outside at the 3 spot since his defense is improving, he should have no problems shutting down guys out there and would be in a better position during offensive sets to take those 17 - 20 footers that he loves and would not have to carry guys like Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace around all night and that would make him more fresh in the Spring as we get ready for our playoff push.

this also would allow Andrea to sub any of the front guys off, allow Jamario and Jason to play the 2 with Anthony Parker while Joey Graham can play the 3 or 4 when we need a boost. i think it makes our team stronger overall in the 3 and 4 spots and we can use Kris Humphries to pound more off the bench.

I hope this little flight of fancy is enjoyed for what it is... just a musing of a tired Raptors fan suffering through a season in which we are now the worst team in the league! let's have some fun guys, it's Christmas

Chris Wilcox -
Season Team G MPG FG% 3p% FT% OFF DEF RPG APG SPG BPG TO PF PPG
08-09 OKC 21 20.6 0.475 0.000 0.604 1.6 3.7 5.2 0.9 0.4 0.3 1.48 2.80 8.5
Career 407 22.4 0.528 0.000 0.663 1.7 3.8 5.5 0.8 0.5 0.4 1.27 2.60 9.6

hmmm our C is adding much more than that right now.. but nice pic! Jake could do this for us!! let him try ! can't be any worse than losing to the Thunder, i mean if we lose to the Clippers tonight, 30th over all will be about the correct ranking.. too much talent for that though, this team needs help, so lets start Jake at C - my roster for tonight

C - Jake - 30 minutes - should get us 5 times the points as 6 minutes so 20 points
PF - Jermaine O'Neal - would probably appreciate the smaller front line guy for a change
SF - Chris Bosh - perhaps starting on the wing will help him return to form from 17 - 20 feet where no one seems willing to make consistent shots from
SG - Jason K - let the man shoot!
PG - Jose

allow Bargs and Hump to rotate Jake out and move Bargs from 4 - 5 when JO needs a rest, let Joey and Jamario rotate with Chris and Anthony Parker looks much more relaxed off the bench at this point. Will, Roko and Jose look much more at ease these days, but i think Roko needs to be in the 15 - 20 minute range so let him have to bulk of the PG rotation.

Merry Christmas guys and gals... enjoy the thread for what it is!

We fall 15 games under by the ASB and it's time for Blake Griffinpoolooza! Bosh and JO's knees act up and keep them out for the season and we start Bargs and Jake V. Hassan Adams at SG for defensive purposes. Hump at the 3. Jose/Adams/Hump/Bargs/Voshkul Heat who???
