Default Think Mitchell's gonna try the all-euro second line

Bargnani/Nesterovic at C
Uros Slokar at PF
Jorge Garbajosa at SF
Anthony Parker at SG
Jose Calderon at PG

Of course Bargnani and Rasho could split the minutes between this lineup and the starting lineup.

Who knows if they could all play together at least a couple times a game they could be the most devastating bench in the leauge. I'll be so pissed if Mitchell doesn't at least try it in preseason.

I say run the starters full speed for the first 8 minutes and last eight minutes of each quarter and let the 2nd group fill in the middle at high speed...everyone is rested and can play up tempo. Playing against some of the not-so-deep teams could make for some fantastic 4th quarters.

Each quarter is only 12 minutes.

8 min starters
8 min 2nd unit
8 minutes starters

Mitchell is going to put line-ups together that he feels will give him the best chance to win.

Not make up a Euro line for the novelty factor.

Nonsense. As soon as our dreams of a shocking season with a playoff run die, go with the novelty lineup. Not all the time, or anything, but I want to see it once just for the hell of it.
Just wait 'till we know we're back in the lottery, so hopefully after the all-star game.

Agreed. A serious organization wouldn't do this crap "for fun".

Does anyone remember Avery's big man lineup during the all-star game? Too bad it that didn't happen.

Anthony Parker isn't a euro.
