Im not up to speed on what Miami plans on doing with Battier gone. Who will they start in his absence? Will they revert back to the lineup they had in the start of the playoffs with Haslem/Bosh sharing PF/C minutes, will they attempt to fix their defensive problems by starting Joel Anthony again, or will they continue the positionless, pace/space theme by starting Shard?

spo said they've practiced several lineups but its not yet known what the plan is. i have a hunch lewis will be starting, but that's just a guess. it could easily be haslem or anthony. i could even see miller since he started when wade was out, but that would likely require lebron starting at the 4.

I would go with Haslem or Lewis. If Bosh at the five is the long term plan, Anthony starting would be counterproductive to the flow of that.

It's too late to move it but I'll keep an eye on this thread. If it starts going off topic, i'll close it.
This def is better suited for the Heat forum.

You are SUCH a Kobephile and LeBron hater. ;-)



In all seriousness, I don't mind when people ask about team specific stuff in the NBA forum because I think all fans of the game have somethign to say about such things, and the Heat line up is a great question for the general fan.


I'd like to see Harrelson get some fawking minutes. This kid has been working hard, try him out as a starter.

If not... play LBJ at PF on the defensive end, and play him as a pass-first PG on the offensive end (it will create match-up problems for the opponents) and watch LBJ average a triple-double for the season :-)


In all seriousnes, WHEN IS SOMEBODY GOING TO FAWKING SIGN KENYON MARTIN!!!! FAWK!!!!

damn, any lopez injury has gotta be scary after last year. yeah wallace shouldn't be suspended, only one out of that whole deal that should be is rondo imo but you never know what they decide i guess. i wouldn't be shocked if it happened.

they announced Lebron as PF because he guards bigs better than Lewis

Me too.

Whos after that? Prolly Haslem right, I cant believe Joel went from cog on a Finalist to never seen from again. I hope they get a defender that can finish some day.
