There has been a lot of talk of bayless / oden and whether they should be first or second string and where they are going to be in the future.
Well it makes since that our proven, consistent vetern starters should in fact start, and our next generation should be working together on the second unit so they can develop together and get ready to crush opposing teams in the coming years. In that spirit, here is the line up...
JOEL - C
LMA - PF
BATUM/MARTELL - SF
ROY - SG
BLAKE - PG
ODEN - C
TROUT - PF
TROUT/RUDY/BATUM - SF
RUDY - SG
BAYLESS - PG
FRYE - backup C or PF
SHAVILK - backup SF (oops....) backup PF
RUFFIN - backup towel boy
SERGIO - backup PG or SG, trading material
Once Martell is back then Batum should move to the second unit. Well, once martell is healthy which could be well into next season. Regardless, Batum should see decent backup minutes in a couple of positions, but once Martell is 100% he is our man for the first unit on SF. I'd like to keep Frye and Randolph because there are excellent players to play in case of injuries. Say what you want about Frye, he doesn't complain, is a team player and a good person.
Really what I want is Oden/Rudy/Bayless working together for the future...mmmmmm, delicious future....
