Brook will start, he is our only true center.And he is good, he just needs to work on getting more rebounds.

If Brook and Yi start together the Nets are just giving the season away. There will be no rebounding on the frontline. Josh Boone should start at the 5, he does all the little things and at the moment is a much better player than Brook. Tanking the season will allow the culture of losing to infest the team once again.

It depends on the coaching staff man!
If i am the coach i prolly start Lopez and Boone together.
But i can see Frank will start Yi. So thats why he should be fired right now

In a perfect world STAT and Boone would start together, the Nets would pick up pressure full court, push the tempo with Devin Harris, and run the half-court offense through Vince. The Nets have a plethora of good athletic wing defenders and can stay in games by turning up the intensity.

Even though Lopez is not that good at rebounding, he can create his own shot, by posting up. Boone just gets his points from good feeds by Harris and Vince.

Lopez will average 12 PPG, because he can post up+get great feeds from Vince and Harris.

12 pts? Boone can get you that. Lopez lacks the strength and skill to get buckets consistently on the NBA level. He will be mauled on Offense and defense for a couple of years.

Lopez will get his points. He has good moves in the post and that can do in the NBA.

How can you say Lopez lacks the strength when atleast he attempts to post up. I rarley see Boone post up, Why are you so high on Boone. I don't think a player who can only get points from feeds is worth starting.

Lopez:Will get better stats then Boone did in his 1st season, heck even his 07-08 season.Is a better free throw shooter. Better Post up player. Better defense. Stronger.

Boone: Will probably average more rebounds than Lopez.I like Boone a lot, and I think he has improved, but we will see in training came who does better.

Lopez is not a better defender than Boone. He is not stronger or as good a rebounder. Lopez's edge in "post moves" will not negate the negatives that he brings to the table. Namely his inability to rebound or defend. Boone plays really good post defense,and in a division that features the likes of Chris Bosh, Jermaine O'Neal, KG, Elton Brand, Eddy Curry, and Zach Randolph, you need to start atleast one player on the frontcourt that can adequately defend their position.

For some reason, Brook Lopez reminds me of Tim Duncan. Is that blowing things out of my proportions?...

Harris
Carter
Not sure yet probably Simmons or Hayes
Yi
Boone

Is the projected starting lineup.

Frank wont start a rookie first of all. Second, like Dasher said, Boone is a better defender.
Lopez needs to experiance a few games before he can start. Plus his rebounding numbers in the summer league were terrible for a C. If he only gets 4.8 in summer league, then I will definitly not start him till the future when hes expierienced.

Sean Williams needs to get some time, but this team is young, but high expectations isin't neccessary. But that doesn't mean they should not try...

I agree, Yi and Sean should split the time at PF. If Yi dissapoints in the first few games, move Sean to start.
And I didnt say they shouldnt try, where did you get that from...?
