    Given that this is the preseason, what other experimental starting lineup would you want to see the coach test before the regular season starts?

    So far, the starting lineup we tried are:

    Pre-Season Game 1: JLin/DMo/DH/JH/CP
    Pre-Season Game 2: PBev/TJones/DH/JH/CP


    I thought Omri Casspi played pretty well the last 2 games and would like to see how he plays in place of Parson given that they have similar height and game play.

    So: JLin/DMo/DH/JH/OC or pre-season game 3?

    What? Let's have a little commonsense here, no way do you leave Parsons, Howard, or Harden out of the starting lineup. Never, OK! Especially to test out Casspi at the start! He's lucky to even break rotation. That said, I am also leaning toward never seeing DMo in the starting lineup again. If Asik is ready to go in Taiwan I'm expecting:
    Lin
    Harden
    Parsons
    Asik
    Howard

    If Smith/Garcia is healthy I wouldn't mind seeing one of them start in place of Asik.

    Lin
    Harden
    Parsons
    Asik
    Howard

    is the one I'm most excited to see.

    Beverley
    Lin
    Harden
    Parsons
    Howard

    might be interesting also.

    I think the one most people are excited about is the pairing of Howard and Asik. If they can play well together we become so much more dangerous and I think we`d be the #1 contender in the west.

    This lineup sucks. Morey is too fat. Bullard never could play. McHale is limping.

    This one is more like it:
    Lin
    Calvin
    Harden
    Olajuwon
    Howard

    Sub Parsons in for Calvin when he starts talking too much and forgets he's playing basketball.

    Today's lineup has alot of pontential with
    2nd Unit
    Asik/Camby
    Casspi/Donatas/Smith
    Garcia/Brewer
    Lin/Williams
    Brooks


    Brewer and Williams are situational players and Smith and Camby are just bodies for when there need to be some fouls to give.
