Apparently, Doug Collins will begin the 2012-13 NBA season with a starting lineup of: Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Andre Iguodala, Spencer Hawes (!) and Kwame Brown (!!). It's awful, but you already know how we feel. So, let's forget about the actual starting lineup for a minute, and talk about what the rotation should be.
My ideal starting lineup – given the current roster – would be: Jrue Holiday, Nick Young, Andre Iguodala, Arnett Moultrie and Lavoy Allen, with Turner, Wright, Harkless and Thad acting as the Night Shift. Nick Young would provide Jrue and Dre a legit shooter to pass to – Moultrie could run the pick n' roll with Jrue. Then, Turner could take the reigns of the Night Shift. In this scenario, I feel like there's a nice blend of skill-sets on both units, and helps play to everyone's strengths.
Agree? Disagree? What would your starting lineup and bench be, if you were coaching the Sixers?
