Gray was actually really solid down the stretch last year.

Hopefully he shed a few pounds...

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

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?

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.

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
