    Well, he may as well just go ahead and do it.

    Starting him for the last 20 games of the season is a great way to get him in shape for the playoffs. With a player like Dyess, you gotta push him.

    Seriously, he should do it because it might make his rotations more manageable. Then again, can Sheed and Dyess both go 44 minutes a game? The thing that stinks is Curry is clearly panicking and changing the line-up or at least suggesting it for what, the 20th time this year. Crazy.

    These guys are pro athletes. They should be able to go 48 minutes per night.

    We work 9 hour days and they can't even put an hour in at about $100K/hr?

    Start AI/Rip/Tay/Dyess/Sheed and don't put in any subs. Just play the best players the entire game. No excuses. Play harder than the other team. They can rest in June after we get the trophy.

    Its not about playing 48 minutes a game, its about being physically capable to play hard 48 minutes a game. This is a lot different than what desk jockeys etc. do. Think more in terms of exercise not working. I am posting on the internet now which is much less taxing than playing NBA defense.

    If we go to a 6-man rotation, we could upgrade those 6 guys by trading bench players.

    Rip + Kwame + Acker for D. Wyade.
    Prince + Amir + Herrmann + Maxiell + Bynum for P. Pierce.
    Sheed + Afflalo + Sharpe for Amare Staudemire.


    We'd be left with:

    AI
    Wyade
    Pierce
    Dyess
    Amare

    With Stuckey off the bench.


    Seriously, what is the point in wasting all the $ on bench players?

    dba, you had a ponytail. I would have never guessed.

    I love short hair since I chopped my dreds.

    Who didn't see a lineup change coming? Seriously, this is as predictable, as the next lineup change in a week or so.

    That's what the summer and MC's training camps are for, to be prepared to go hard in the games when they're called on.

    Me, I sit on my ass all night when I get home so my butt won't be sore at work.

    One of the best posts of the season.

    I don't think it will take much from Tay to pass him off as a robot. That might allow them to sneak Stuckey out there as a 6th object.

    Does this mean Kwame's benched?

    After J-Max gets his shot at starting, Joe is going to have to sign some additional bigs to 10-days so MC can keep up with this "musical big man" fiasco.

    PF/Cs for the remainder of the season will likely include:
    Pops Mensah
    Michael Doleac
    Scott Pollard
    Fatoine Walker

    ...Is Kelvin Kato available?

    Why wait another 15 games before doing it if he thinks it would work well? Why not try it now?

    hahaha...Curry making assumptions the Pistons will even make the postseason...talk about putting the cart before the horse :eek:

    Can't say that I'm surprised of another lineup change coming from Captain Clueless himself.

    What if we start a lineup of all expiring contracts?

    AI
    Acker
    Herrmann
    Dyess
    Sheed

    This way, we will really get our money's worth from those guys before they leave. The guys who are committed long-term can use this season to rest.

    Dice is beasting off the bench. Why change it now? Oh wait, Curry. Can't roll with the same lineup for more than a week at a time.
