    All this talk of Tay at the 4, Rip at the 3, etc. has me thinking............

    If we were able to field a true small ball lineup we may be so quick on the hardwood that nobody will be able to keep up, just picture it.

    C: sign Milsap
    PF: Tay
    SF: Rip
    SG: Stuck or try to get Tyron Lue or Chucky Atkins to play the 2 with Stuck coming off the bench.
    PG: Earl Boykins

    I know it's a stretch to think we'd be guaransheed to even get players of Lue or Boykins (playing in Italy) caliber but we can always hold out for Speedy Claxton or Brevin Knight (never hurts to have a couple of backup SF/PF combos around.

    I like it.

    The thing about the small ball lineup is that it was never really given a chance to work.

    I think it might even help to get a smaller coach. I think Mike Fratello is pretty short.

    MC is short on coaching ability. Is that good enough?

    Coach Tablecloth has got to be one of the best nicknames I've seen on this site. Classic!
