Default starting line up idea

maybe a little too much out of the box, but what the hell


DeRozan
Wright or Bellinelli
Turkoglu
Bosh
Bargnani


DeRozan defending the point, not playing it

Turkoglu is effectively the point player, like he pretty much was today
Jack doesn't pass much, much less make plays for his teammates

DeRozan has the quickness to have a shot at defending the point, maybe I'm wrong, it's just an idea. anyway he does have a size advantage over most.
And this line up is huge. literally. matchup problems all over the place

Wright could be the defense only player or Bellinelli starting if you wanna add more ball handling qualities

you don't think he'll contain opposing point guards better than Jose, or even Jack? because it won't be hard

He can't even guard 2's? Jack is our best defender against opposing PG's. Like it or not.

Well, I read enough times people think Belinelli should be the team's 3rd point guard.
Imo Belinelli is a worse defender than DeRozan, and less quick/athletic. No matter if the opponent is a 2 guard or a 1 guard I would expect.

I wouldn't mind seeing belli take up some backup point duties. He can handle the ball WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than Dero and have Hedo on the floor when u do this.

Triano is an etched in stone kinda guy with rotations. He'll have to make some sort of move and I wouldn't mind seeing this as an experiment.

I'd also like to see Dero ride some pine.

I don't know, like Jack Armstrong says, Belinelli competes on the defensive end and is active. To be honest Derozan has been disapointing on the defensive end and seems lazy at times. At this point i don't know what the answer is.

I don't buy this bs about Jack not passing much or looking for his team-mates.

playmaking is not his best asset i mean. He's best when driving the lane imo, but when he does he usually goes all the way never see him kick out

Jack doesent Pass much lol, have you been watching the games or what? In his three starts his assist numbers have been line 8-7-9 or something like that. He passes more then enough, he defienatly is not a ball hog....but maybe he should be

Lets start Sonny Weems as 2 guard. Hes by far our best perimeter defender.
or if not Belinelli.
