    I would be surprised if we do not have a starting line-up of Knight, Billups, Smith, Monroe and Drummond on opening night. Maybe Singler starts instead of Drummond, or KCP starts instead of Billups/Knight, but I doubt it.

    This is how I would like to see the frontcourt (SF,PF,C) rotate:

    SF: Smith (18min)/Singler-Datome-Jerebko(30min)
    PF: Monroe (16min)/Smith (18 min)/Jerebko-Mitchell (14min)
    C: Drummond (30min)/Monroe (18min)

    That means Smith will avg 36 mpg, Monroe 34 mpg and Drummond 30 mpg. I didn't include Kravtsov and Villanueva, but they might switch things up a little bit (More minutes for Monroe as PF, and Smith as SF etc.)

    Yeah that sums it up pretty accurately, but here's what I'd like to see:

    SF: Whoever wins the spot in training camp between Singler / Middleton / Pizza Guy; and play an avg of 24mpg for the guys who are 1 and 2 on the depth chart.
    PF: Smith (33) / Monroe (15)
    C: Monroe (18) / Drummond (30)

    I also won't be shocked to see some small ball with KCP and Stickey playing some SF in an effort to get all 5 of our guards- Knight, Billups, Stickey, KCP and Bynum some playing time.

    Siva, Pope, Datome, Mitchel - interesting thing about that lineup is 3 of them I have never seen play before ever. I did see Siva once during the UM game but
    the other 3 I could pass right by and not even know who they are. Now they are on the team

    I like your idea of discussing 4-man rotations...thinking outside of the box....

    Mejia is a darn good basketball player these days. He has learned to shoot from range, and hit his free throws at a respectable clip. He already had a strong to the basket game when we saw him briefly. That has only gotten better. Decent rebounder and assist guy too. Actually, of the players who have passed thru here, nobody had more Piston DNA than Mejia. One tough player.

    Mejia averaged 12 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists in the Turkish basketball league last year.

    I've started referring to the NES game as Super Luigi Brothers.
