Gray was actually really solid down the stretch last year.

Hopefully he shed a few pounds...

fk24 12-14-2011 02:21 PM

Gray is a scrub. Why is he getting starters minutes? How is he any better than Amir or Ed?

LKeet6 12-14-2011 02:25 PM

same as yours.

Well, we know Jose is starting and if Magloire starts on opening night it better be bacause Alabi/Gray/Amir/Davis/Bargnani have the bird flu.

Many of the "#2" guys will be starting multiple games anyway because of back-to-back and back-to-back-to-back......like your backup goalie in the NHL. It will be more interesting to see if a whole 2nd unit gets the start togetter and the 1st unit backs up.

Like would it be a shock to see a starting lineup of Bayless, Barbosa, Butler, Davis and Amir play 18 minutes first game, then start the next game and play 32?

Bankiz 12-14-2011 05:25 PM

caldy/Jbay/carter
DD/Barbosa/forbes

Gray is a legit C, who knows how to guard the post and doesn't need defensive touches.

Amir/Ed are PFs who would get beat up by the bigger Cs in the league.

As a PURE C, all three are pretty even.

Dark Knight 12-14-2011 09:34 PM

Doesn't matter who starts the game, it's who ends it is what matters. :cookie:

Nites 12-14-2011 09:52 PM

PG Calderon/Bayless/Carter
SG DeRozan/Barbosa/Forbes
SF Johnson/Butler/Forbes
PF Bargs/Davis/Amir
C Amir/Gray/Magloire/Alabi

moujik 12-14-2011 10:03 PM

Jose
Demar
JJ
Davis
Center

moremilk 12-14-2011 10:18 PM

The starters won't change because of the schedule, instead you will see them playing fewer minutes when the schedule gets tricky. Other than injuries, we'll probably see amir at the c, except agsinst really big ones when gray might get the nod. Alabi is the mystery man this season and magloire won't see much burn unless we have tons of injuries
