    All Lee team)

    Siva, Pope, Mitchell


    and Monroe, Drummond, Smith.

    And Jennings and Billups.

    I still say trade Bynum, Singler, JJ, Datome, CV, Stuckey I guess, and Harrellson, and get for them another big and another small forward. Both of whom have excellent defense above anything else.

    This would leave Billups as the only slow footed guy on the team. I think the rest of the team can cover for that in turn for what Billups gives us.

    In case people can't read the OP, and apparently they can't, post your guess at the opening night starting lineup, and save quixotic posts about what the final roster should look like for some other, less interesting, less important thread.

    Thx.

    I wouldn't slam close the door on other possibilities.

    This is what I think it should be if Jennings is hurt. It allows Bynum to do what he does best and Billups can slow down Pope.

    That would be impressive for Datome to miss the entire preseason with an injury and still start on opening night as a rookie.

    I really hope it's Pope that gets it. I feel like he has 'earned it' and that 'pseudo earning it cliche that coaches love to crap on with'.

    Billups, Pope, Smith, Moose, Drummond

    Billups and Singler are my doubts,without stuckey and Jennings we need a more dynamic point guard to start,mi big shot is our more balanced player but he need his energy for the last quarter.

    I don't like it. I rather have Bynum in the 2nd unit where he can focus on scoring and Billups + Shooter (KCP?) with the jumbo front line to start. Man, this Jennings injury sucks.
