If you had to build a starting lineup from bench players in the NBA who would your starting 5 be and why?

PG: Goran Dragic
SG: Wes Matthews/George Hill
SF: Matt Barnes
PF: Serge Ibaka
C: Robin Lopez

That's completely off the top of my head, I'm sure there's better lineups. (And I'm aware Matthews is starting right now, but he wouldn't be if Roy was healthy so I'll consider him a bench player)

There's something strange about this that I can't quite put my finger on.

Aaron Brooks (or Lawson)
Jamal Crawford
Wilson Chandler
Lamar Odom
Brendan Haywood (I'm being told Gortat is now starting in Phoenix)

Championship.

And why: Plenty of offensive fire-power from that lineup and you'll get some interior defense from Haywood and rebounding from Odom. Chandler is a good perimeter-defender with a slasher's mentality and the backcourt provides offense. Thoughts? I could probably tweak a few things, but it's decent.

Probably not the best, but that would be an interesting 5 to watch on the floor at the same time.

I had Terry at the point originally, but he didn't really play very well there in Atlanta. Can we really count him as a true-point? Would you want him as the point-guard of your team? I wouldn't.

Terry avg like 17 pts and 5.5 ast for the years in Atl? :eyebrow:

If I didnt avg his rookie year, it would a lil bit higher

Once again, I didn't say he wasn't a good player I asked if you wanted him as THE POINT-GUARD of your team. I originally had Terry as the point-guard for my team, then I adjusted it because he's not really a true point-guard. If we're created lineups for NBA 2K then Terry can play the point, but if we're trying to be realistic about this then he can't.

We all know you're a Mavs-homer who defends every Dallas player to no end, we got it. It wasn't a slight at Terry, I'm just trying to be realistic.

I know, But those was his numbers as a PG!!!! lol Thats like Devin Harris numbers

The only other choice is Luke Ridnour, Steve Blake, and Lawson lol

Give me Rindour,

PG - Rindour
SG - Barbosa
SF - Chandler
PF - Odom
C - Gortat

Bench - Crawford, Terry, Shaq, Haywood, Arenas, Barnes, Samuel Dalembert.

Then I'll take our Gortat and put in Ibaka at C, I actually like that better anyway.


Gil sucks this year

I go

Terry
Mayo

I've just always liked Gil, and will always pull for him. I think he still has soemthing left, maybe.

Anyway. After doing a bit more research, here's the guys who I think you really have to choose from.

Ty Lawson/George Hill/Gilbert Arenas
Jason Terry/OJ Mayo/James Harden/CJ Miles/JJ Redick/Jamal Crawford/JR Smith/Leandro Barbosa
Shawn Marion/Thaddeus Young/Matt Barnes/Corey Maggette
Lamar Odom/Glen Davis/Tyrus Thomas/Ryan Anderson/Al Harrington/Carl Landy
Serge Ibaka/Nick Collison/Shaq or Perkins/Gortat


Probably missed a couple, but really those are a majority of your best bench players.

The lineup I would take:

George Hill
OJ Mayo
James Harden
Lamar Odom
Serge Ibaka

Again, not the best, but good rebounding, defense is decent and good outside shooting.

I like this line up

Giraffes Rule
02-06-2011, 04:55 PM
Ty Lawson
OJ Mayo
Thaddeus Young
Mr Kardashian
Ibaka

Tough passing up on George Hill, but I like Lawson more as a point guard and Mayo more at the 2.
