Some teams (Minnesota, Golden State, Toronto, Detroit) have some proven talent, but their rosters usely largely consist of players with almost identical athleticism and talent. What teams are - in your opinion - completely off with their starting line-ups and rotations?

Who would start over who?
Who would be further down the bench?

For the Suns, here's my starting lineup/bench:

PG Steve Nash/Goran Dragic
SG Jason Richardson/Josh Childress
SF Grant Hill/Jared Dudley
PF Hakim Warrick/Hedo Turkoglu
C Channing Frye/Robin Lopez

Hakim over Hedo because the starting lineup has Steve already, Hedo can be a better playmaker off the bench with the second unit. Goran is making great strides, but he's not 100% there yet. He can also perform the roles of a SG well, so Hedo makes sense.

Channing Frye in the starting lineup over Robin Lopez because, as of right now (other than the injury), Frye deserves it. He's been playing well, and Lopez hasn't. I'd like to see this team on the court once Lopez comes back.

I agree. The Suns certainly had an interesting summer (probably not a great one), but they could improve it by making these line-up changes.

why would u possibility even think about starting peja? surely he's only good for a spot up job coming off the bench?
