Maybe she was thinking about the Lions? Oh wait....
You got it. The key is to see us play two bigs, at all times, with 2 of those bigs being Maxiell and Amir, in heavy doses. Here is the formula I'd like to see:
There are 96 minutes between center and power forward each game. Amir and JMAX should cover 40 of those minutes, with a combination of Sheed, Kwame, and Dyess covering the other 56 minutes. My first guess, to be exact, 26 for Sheed, and 15 each for Dyess and Kwame.
Point guard, Stuckey 32 minutes, Bynum 16. (Backup = AI)
Shooting guard, AI 24 minutes, Rip 24 minutes. (Backup = Stuckey, Afflalo, Tay)
Small forward, Tay 28 minutes, Afflalo 20 minutes. (Backup = Amir)
This is an 11 man rotation. Its pretty much injury proof. AI needs to continue to get some point guard minutes in case we need to go that way. Tay should start getting some shooting guard minutes, again, in case we need to go that way. Amir needs to start getting some small forward minutes. Stuckey needs to keep getting some shooting guard minutes, paired with Bynum in the backcourt.
And finally, to add just a bit more depth, we need to start playing Sharpe the last 5 minutes of each first half.
The last will allow a unit of Stuckey, Tay, Sharpe, Amir, and Sheed to close out 2nd quarters, an exercise in going fairly big, especially looking for a mismatch at the guard spots.
