    Carmelo may get offended.

    Good over/under actually. I’ll take the over. Lebern may be the perfect obnoxious alpha that Dwert really needs.

    lulz...Dwight started every game in his career except one....much like Carmelo.

    Would you start JaVale McGee with AD? Of course not. So why start Dwight with AD?

    Dwight isn't going to handle a bench role, especially one when the fans might vocally favor McGee off the bench.

    Doesn't AD insist on not being a 5? I assume Mcgee would start and Dwight will start.

    AD wants to play PF which is why they needed to find a second center to start over McGee. Dwight is the starter atm.

    And Carmelo wanted to start. :D

    It's actually truly stupid that the Lakers are even considering starting a non-stretch C (especially if they also start Rondo), just like the Rockets starting Carmelo.

    bottomline: The OP question is about predicting what game the Lakers will tell Dwight they want him to move to the bench, to start Danny Green with Rondo. Or Green with Bradley and Lerbron runs the offense. Or KCP with either.​

    Unibrow/LeBum/Dwert/McA'Fool/Kuzzy is the best starting five in the league.

    I believe the lakers expected starting lineup is:

    LeBron, Green, Kuzma, AD, McGee.

    I think Dwight and McGee split the minutes 24/18 with McGee getting the larger portion. the other 6 minutes should go to AD in small ball lineups.

    It’s going to be hilarious watching any team that’s even remotely quick tear that line up a new one.

    Not a chance in hell they have a starting lineup that can’t defend anyone under 6’5.
