Default Antonio McDyess could lose starting 4 spot

First-year coach Michael Curry will give Amir Johnson, Jason Maxiell and Kwame Brown a legitimate and fair shot at unseating veteran Antonio McDyess as the starting power forward-center opposite Rasheed Wallace.

McDyess originally came to this team to be a reserve player. He found himself in the starting line up when Nazr Mohammad, whom was signed to "replace" Ben Wallace, wasn't working out.

I think McDyess would rather come off the bench and provide some veteran leadership for the second unit.

I am curious to see how well Amir will do and see if he is able to step his game up and possibly get some time with the starting job… something I think should have been tried in the 2008 playoffs…

McDyess has said before that he would rather come off the bench than start. I wonder if this is a factor too. Personally I like the idea of having the one-two punch of Stuckey and McDyess coming off the bench. Also just because someone isn't a starter doesn't mean they won't get the minutes they were before.

I think the job is Maxiell's to lose. I don't think Amir is ready yet. I really hope he can give us some quality minutes off the bench. Kwame started for the Lakers but that was by default as they really didn't have anybody else until Phil decided to start actually playing Bynum. Unless his game has taken a complete 180 I don't see him being a starter.

I am sure Curry will at least give a test trial with Kwame in the starting line up… now him staying in that spot will be dependent on if he performs and how he does in practice as well as his attitude… I have heard he has had issues with the 'tude and that won't slide in Detroit.

Im sorry to interject here, but Kwame is a scrub. Hopefully for Detroit he can turn his carreer around, but I doubt it. Maxiell would be my choice for the starting spot

It's actually a bit suprising that Amir will be going from a player who could barely get into the game to a starter. I thought it would be Maxiell since he really did pretty good last year. Let's just hope Amir's game keeps growing.

Dice's minutes need to be cut down anyway so this is hardly a bad thing.

sounds like dice and sheed will mostly be alternating time on the court other than during crunch time.

btw what the **** happened to maxiells outside development from last year? he was getting pretty good at that 15 ft jumper and now hes back to chuck hayes level.

He got paid…
In all seriousness, Maxiell was doing well last season and I had figured he would be even better this year but he's been struggling (too)…
