One of the questions cropping up in the Mailbag inbox is whether Portland Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts would consider starting Meyers Leonard in Game 5 of their series versus the Memphis Grizzlies. Leonard performed well in Game 4, hitting 5-6 shots (including all 3 of his three-point attempts) playing solid defense. and grabbing 13 rebounds in 35 minutes of court time.
We actually address this question in the Blazer's Edge Podcast, coming to you at noon Pacific today. But I thought I'd throw it out to you as well. Would you start Leonard in Game 5? Why or why not? And whether or not you would, isn't it amazing that we're talking about this after his shaky first couple years in the league?
