Since it is the dog days of summer as far as basketball news goes, I thought I would throw out a topic for discussion.
There has been a lot of discussion of this team's depth and versatility and the options it will provide for Skiles. Which lineup are you most looking forward to seeing Skiles put on the floor this coming season? This is not to ask who is your starting five, but which lineup would you like to see on the floor and why?
The lineup that intriques me most is after the jump.
C: Larry Sanders 6'11
PF: Jon Brockman 6'7
SF: Luc Mbah a Moute 6'8
SG: Chris Douglas-Roberts 6'7
PG: Keyon Dooling 6'3
I know that this lineup is highly situational and lacks offensive firepower. But, if Skiles wants to create chaos on the defensive end of the floor to break an opponent's offensive rhythm, this would be the lineup to go with. The frontcourt combines Sanders massive wingspan, high revving motor and shotblocking with Brockman's hustle, stout post defense and voracious rebounding, and The Prince's court awareness, defensive versatility, and nose for the ball. The guard duo of CDR and Dooling would provide quickness, length and tenacity on the defensive end as well.
And I can always cross my fingers that The Prince will expand his offense by dropping that corner three on a consistent basis this year as well. Hey, it took Bruce Bowen until he got to San Antonio is his late twenties before he could hit that, so why not Luc?
So, what lineup has you jazzed for the coming season?
