My opinion: Orlando's best lineup

Posted on: December 19, 2010 1:06 pm
After the trades Orlando made figured I would give an opinion on what the best lineup would be for Orlando.

Right now Orlando has 4 point guards which I figure will have to lead to a trade sooner rather than later. Jason Williams and Duhon are of course the backup guards. Nelson and Arenas starting at the point is still at question. I've been vocal about wanting Orlando to trade for a point guard that can score consistantly. Unfortunately Nelson was not that guy. He and Arenas are young players. If Arenas does indeed stay healthy which I don't know, but if he did I would trade Nelson in a second or at least put him up to get some good offers to help the team elsewhere. The only worry I have with that is Nelson and Dwight have great chemistry which would lead me to believe he will be starting. Also hurt the chances of him being traded. I don't like the idea of having two point guards starting. If the team played LA who would guard Kobe? Certainly not Arenas.

Starting shooting guard should be Jason Richardson. Backups Q and Redick. Prefer Redick and Q be the backup for Turkoglu at the 3. Never got to see Earl Clark really play so it will be interesting to see what Orlando got.

Power forward position starter should be Bass with Anderson as the backup. Don't mind them with split minutes. Anderson isn't much of a rebounder, but he is good at the 3. Bass is more of a rebounder and he can shoot the ball at a distance as well. Bass brings a lot of energy to the lineup. I think he deserves this chance to start.

Center obviously Dwight Howard. Malik Allen and rookie center Daniel Orton will be the backup for him. Figure Allen will get the majority of the minutes with Orton coming off an injury. In any case I do believe Orlando didn't get better from the deals, but time will tell of course.

Starting lineup
SG-Jason Richardson
C-Dwight Howard

My opinion: Orlando's best lineup

I feel like Gilbert should be starting instead of Nelson. Arenas has showed more potential to be more dangerous than Nelson if Arenas scores consistently that opens up the floor for dwight down low, and richardson and turk who are good 3 pt shooters.
 If Jason Will is going to be shopped around i wouldn't mind him coming to the Knicks, he can shoot the 3 well and knows how to run the point
