    FAB 5

    So who are the starting 5 opening night and first off the bench?

    My opening night 5 are:

    Point - Gessel
    Off Guard - Marble
    Center - Gabe
    Power Forward - McCabe
    Small Forward - White
    6th Man - Basabe for McCabe

    I think Basabe will be starting in place of McCabe.

    Way too hard to call at this stage. But... I believe that we have enough solid contributors this year that more than 5 could start and we will see the starting 5 change from game to game.

    No doubt its extremely early and just about anything could happen. Totally agree. I'm simply bored and trying to start a bball conversation. Can't wait for that opening tip!

    Re: FAB 5

    Re:FAB 5

    I don't blame you at all. I have had this conversation with a few people and we go around in circles because there are quality players all around. Ive just come to the conclusion that the lineup will change depending on our opponents strengths. We have many players that can do different things, something we haven't had in a long while, and their strengths will allow us to switch the starting 5 up if needed.

    I disagree that we will see various starting lineups. There is something to having a "rotation" that kids / players get used to. Minutes have the potential to vary based upon the opponent / matchups, but i don't see the starting lineup changing all that much. That has the potential to do more harm than good.

    That is true. I don't think they switch the whole lineup every game, or even switch a person every game, but I think we see a few different sets throughout the season.
