JJ needs to start. Bogans is solid, but he is not a starter for a playoff team. i really dislike turk's game, and i think redick is mroe effective at simply shooting. HILL needs to start, as his game is based around the driving and finishing.
you can say what you want about him, and that he only played 15 games last seaosn, but go back and chack the box scores in those scattered games he played. he averaged ovre 15 ppg, and the nights he didn't score 20 was when he played like 2mpg because of injury.
darko should play the 4 because he has a very effective mid range game, as shown by his play for the Serbian national team at the worlds
dwight should play the 5 because he has not mid range game whatsoever, no even a little jumper.
the other reason is that darko is 245, and dwight is 265. and they're only 1-2 inches apart in height.
it just makes sense
i want diener to play. he is a very good prototype PG who gets his team in their offense, and can then act as a 3 point shooter. he wouldn't be out of place as a starter on this team in a few years. for now, nelson to start, with arroyo backing up and playing some 2 guard, with diener stepping in and playing a little two guard as well, just to get him some more minutes
