Default new lineup?

I would like to see a new lineup.A small one.Maybe start

PG-Stoudamire
SG-Lowry
SF-Gay
PF-Gasol
C-Millic.

Then have miller and navarro OFFthe bench.Along with conley and swift.The problem with our current lineup is that everyone wants to be a star.Pau is getting no touches.We need a playmaking point guard.Which conley is.But he is lacking with his shot and defense.Damon is a shoot first and lowry looks to make flare plays not the right ones.There are too many scoring options on the starting unit.There is no guard to get the ball to all of he options.The ball should go to pau or miller everytime.If the play gets broken.Then we need to go to rudy or darko.

To some extent, I agree with you in going to a small lineup and have both Miller and Navarro off the bench. Two good scoring options like Pau and Rudy are enough for the starting 5.
I don't know if Damon and Kyle will mesh together and frankly, the Grizz defense would not improve. I'd rather start Tarence in the SG and Kyle in the PG. I know that's unlikely because for coach I Kinsey is almost out of the rotation, but I think his energy is necessary for the team.

I'd probably wet myself if that were to happen.

I don't get the Grizz's problem. First, a Damon, Lowry backcourt would be terribly small.

The issue is that the 'stars' aren't getting the rock. Pau needs to get 20 a game, be an inside player. Mike Miller barely shoots anymore and his perimiter game kept the D honest. I think it's the opposite in that the stars are playing way too unselfishly. They do need to insert Lowry as the starting PG though. He's currently better then Damon.

A lineup of Lowry, Miller, Gay (grown big time), Pau and either Warrick or Darko should win a lot of games I think.

And you need more then 2 scorers in your starting 5 in most cases to be competitive.

The problem is defense. Coach I could change the line up to be a big one or he can go small, either way the fact still remains that the Grizz cannot play good defense. If Coach I focused more time on getting the team to play defense in training instead of always relying on running to win, we might actually win a few games. Also, we need to learn to play in the half court if we want any chance of doing well in the playoffs, if we make the playoffs that is, which looks doubtful at the moment, especially with the way we're playing at the moment.
