    interesting, but I've gotta say, I'm no fan of leaking this game plan.

    he's not leaking anything when it's not happening anyway ;)

    IHart shouldn't get too excited. Chandler will play more minutes than him and just less of the PJ Tucker at the 5 that is loved

    Is he saying a Capela / Hartenstein / Tucker front line?

    Wtf?

    i really don’t like his coaching / the roster balance.

    to him it’s all bigs or guards. And the roster reflects that.

    it’s like they don’t realize there’s such a thing as a legit PF.

    Don't let MDA gaslight you. He won't do it. Remember how well Faried played with Clint? MDA never used that lineup again. Mike is trollin.

    If AD is out, then no a change is necessary?

    What two big though? Lol, only centers are bigs on this roster so, yeah, probably means having a true center on the court for 48 minutes.

    Faried was good with Clint, doesn't matter he was trash on defense. It's not like he was going to be in the game in the 4th qtr. He was there for a body and energy.

    Faried was on the bench in Brooklyn before his resurrection in Houston, of course no one was going to pick him up. His skills only fits the Houston system.

    Denver went ultra big against the Warriors last night with Plumlee as the 4 and won. Plumlee can't shoot and their spacing was fine because Jokic was a threat to shoot.

    If MDA would use Hartenstein's ability to shoot threes this wouldn't even be a discussion. He doesn't even have to shoot well he just has to be a threat.

    MDA is not empowering Hartenstein to hoop, Hartenstein doesn't even look at the rim when he gets the ball outside the key he is so scared.

    I loved the energy of that lineup - Cap, Faried, House, Harden, CP3 was a great compliment to start the game. Oh well. :(
