Fun With Lineups!

New, comments

With two former starters departing in the Zach Randolph deal, Isiah Thomas will have to assemble a new starting five this season. While Z-Bo is an obvious candidate to take Channing Frye's spot at the 4, Steve Francis' physical absence (as opposed to spiritual) leaves a bit of room for question at the 2 and 3 spots. Should Quentin Richardson play the shooting guard or the small forward? Is Jared Jeffries starting material? Balkman? Crawford? I'll sort through some potential lineups:

First, the Official P&T Recommended Starting Lineup for 2007-2008:

  • S. Marbury
  • J. Crawford
  • Q. Richardson
