So it looks like the rotation will look like this to start the year...

Russ/Morrow/Roberson/Ibaka/Adams

Reggie/Lamb/PJ/Nick/Perk

Have fun Reggie!

The lottery reform would definitely have made the actual lottery more interesting.  I wouldn't have minded the reform.  Not sure it really would have benefitted big market teams that much.  I think the current system probably gives more control to the GM's though.  Because if you are good at evaluating and picking players there is more certainty in the current system.

Adding Reggie to the mix will make a big difference.  He's by far our 2nd best guard and playmaker and he's one of only 3 guys on our roster that can consistently create (KD and Russ are the other 2).  So even though Serge is our 2nd best player, he needs help getting good shots.  Morrow can't create, obviously Adams and Roberson can't create.  Adding Reggie will make a big difference.  

Also non-NBA players still played 60 minutes for us last night (no Telfair is not a legit NBA player).   

One thing I was disappointed that we didn't see this preseason was a hard core focus on running offenses that emphasize ball movement and cutting.  Whether we're playing D leaguers half the game or our rotation players, training camp is when you put in your team offense and get comfortable with it.  I didn't see many signs of any kind of new offense.  Looked pretty similar to what we've always seen and it didn't work very well.

@Grolgar Thabo's career average is 1.7 3's per game and .7 3 point makes per game.  His biggest impact was on defense.  If he shoots bad and makes .6 threes per game instead of .8 per game I'm not sure it makes a ton of difference.

Since Serge came back in the preseason Adams production has gone down quite a bit.  There are not a ton of balls that will be going to the bigs in the offense we run.  Will be interesting to see how that dynamic works itself out.

@El Prez @d21 @_justin Perkins, Roberson and Perry jones in the starting lineup = ugly offense.  It's going to be ugly with Adams instead of Perkins but Adams would help some.

@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @BangBangThunder If all these random guys can be on the preseason roster the NBA needs to figure out a way to get guys like Christon and Huestis on there.  At least they'd be able to practice and play in these games with the team.

Exactly. When we had a deeper team there were stretches of the game he was in and looked almost bored. All of his minutes were hard minutes last season. He was exhausted mentally and physically by the end of most games because he had to do so much.

Not sure but he wasn't good at guarding summer league postmen so he's got some work to do defensively

Cleveland is going to be an awful matchup for us. Love is a better shooter than Bosh. Another of Brooks glaring failures is Ibaka not being able to guard stretch post guys. How hard it it to stand closer to shooters so they can't shoot? Ibaka is awful at that though.

Best finishing lineup when everyone is healthy?

Russ/Reggie/KD/Serge/Adams?

Russ/Reggie/Morrow/KD/Serge?

Might depend on the opponent. 

I wonder if Brooks will do some offense for defense down the stretch this year?

@_justin @Jooseppi Our first unit will be strong defensively but if we throw out Jackson/Morrow/Lamb/Collison/Perk  with that second group they may get lit a lot of nights.  Morrow and Lamb in the same unit will have problems.

@_justin Reggie will help a lot.  2 guys that can create is much better than 1.  I agree though.  Just need to hang on and focus on D and moving the ball.

@Es Wild @okcjim THey need to step it up pretty quickly.  Both have been given a lot of minutes this preseason and neither have done much with it.

Lamb is shooting 30% from the field and 14% from 3 and PJ is shooting 39% from the field and 27% from 3.

@BangBangThunder @okcjim Mitch is not a perimeter threat though.  We need another perimeter threat IMO. If Lamb or PJ would start playing well that would do it.  We've been saying that for a long time though.

Maybe something like this and throw in Pleiss/Abrines/1st rounder if needed...

I think we may need one more piece before its all said and done.  I think Roberson will do ok in his role as the defense/hustle guy with the starters, I think Morrow will fill his role as a shooter but I think we need one more shooter.  As much as I think Perk stinks I still feel better with him on the roster than not.  Adams is better than he is but behind him I don't feel comfortable with Collison trying to guard a Dwight Howard or keeping Jordan off the boards.  We need a real backup center on the roster in case Adams gets in foul trouble or isn't playing well or gets hurt.  So unless we get some size in return I think we probably need to deal others beside Perk to get that other shooter in here. 

Others IMO would include Lamb, PJ, Pleiss, Abrines and future picks.  As close as we are I would be possibly give up any/all of these guys to get one guy that fills that role.

The KD leaving talk is pointless.  There is a long way to go before even he thinks seriously about it.  If we win he will stay.

What teams are tanking this year?  Philly, Lakers, Bucks?  Who else?  I think those are potential trade partners if PJ and Lamb keep stinking it up.

96 was a much better year for me! Haha we best OU, Iowa and Colorado st in consecutive weeks and I actually got to kick a few. We were not very good in 97. I really like Blankenship and hope he gets it turned around but that TU program is so fragile I'm not sure how long they can afford to have terrible seasons.
