Minute Allocations

Now that (barring any trades) our roster is completely finalized for the start of this upcoming season, I'd like to take a moment to discuss what the minute allocations will be for our Future Western Conference Champions (too soon?). Here's how I see the 48 minute breakdown at each position.

REGULAR SEASON BREAKDOWN:

PG: Lillard: 25, Mo: 14, CJ: 9

SG: Matthews: 29, Lillard: 10, CJ: 7, Barton: 1, Crabbe: 1

SF: Batum: 30, Wright: 15, Claver: 3

PF: Aldridge: 31, Thomas: 14, Freeland: 3

C: Lopez: 27, Leonard: 17, Aldridge: 4

REGULAR SEASON TOTALS:

Lillard: 35

Aldridge: 35

Batum: 30

Matthews: 29

Lopez: 27

Leonard: 17

CJ: 16

Wright: 15

Mo: 14

Thomas: 14

Freeland: 3 (Moderate D League Time)

Claver: 3 (Moderate D League Time)

Barton: 1 (Significant D League Time)

Crabbe: 1 (Significant D League Time)

PLAYOFF (8...and half) BREAKDOWN:

PG: Lillard: 30, Mo: 11, CJ: 7

SG: Matthews: 25, CJ: 13, Lillard:10

SF: Batum: 38, Matthews: 10

PF: Aldridge: 35, Thomas: 13

C: Lopez: 35, Leonard: 8, Aldridge: 5

PLAYOFF (8...and half) TOTALS:

Lillard: 40

Aldridge: 40

Batum: 38

Matthews: 35

Lopez: 35

CJ: 20

Thomas: 13

Mo: 11

Leonard: 8

ANALYSIS:

Because of the nature of the NBA and the flexibility necessary for a team to be able to "go big" or "go small", there is a big need for players that can play multiple positions. Adding Mo Williams, although he's more of a pure point guard (he averaged 6.2 assists per game in only 30.8 minutes last season), has had a HUGE impact on every position in our front court. It bumps CJ and Damian into adding depth at our SG position and Matthews into adding depth at the SF position. I think there will be multiple times this season where we'll see Mo, Damian, and Matthews on the floor together and Mo, CJ and Matthews on the floor together. What a huge get for us. What are your thoughts on my minute allocations? I feel like this is pretty realistic - and extremely promising.
