Default New Starting Line-up

Foye(lots of minutes)
Davis
Hassell
KG
Use Craig Smith on smaller Centers but otherwise Blount

I want to use Foye and Smith as much as possible. They are the only players I don't see doing really stupid **** on the floor like James, Hudson, Griffin and Jaric. I wish Griffin would stop shooting outside of the paint. I wish Jaric would not drive and then lose the ball to some 7 footer. I like what Blount is doing. We still can't get rebounds and it's costing us every game we've lost so far except the versus the Kings. Casey will give Foye so many more minutes and that will equal more wins. At this point we would have to win our next seven games for my prediction to be right. I'm not saying it's impossible if Casey decides to take up COACHING 101 but it's looking bad. Foye looked good though and that's the biggest upside. Foye and Smith look like great pieces to any team. I don't know how special Smith is ever going to be, but he might be worth trading for a center if we can get rid of Jaric or Hudson. Where is Davis? Is this guy even playing basketball? What the hell is wrong with him? Trade him for a better fit maybe if he keeps "not fitting" in the system.

I know. What the heck is Griff (Griffin) thinking? I know he likes the 3, but take it to the rack once in awhile too. And I would agree, we are giving up waaaaay to many rebounds. We somebody in there that is going to bang some bodies around and get those rebounds.

Casey. I will not touch that right now. I hope that Mchale and company are putting in calls to Rick Adelman. Or Del Harris. We gotta do something for KG, the man needs help.

Davis a little too soft for SF... but they can work something out... McCants is soooooooo under-played!

Although I agree Foye needs lots of minutes, I see nothing wrong with James starting, as long as Hudson rots on the bench, Foye can play minutes both at the 2 & 1 as he clearly can run both well...

screw the starting line-up i put up before. this is the one i want:

Davis
KG
Blount or Griffin

although if foye comes off the bench and puts in 25 minutes...ill be fine with that too.
