22-23 Starting 5

:oops:

Maybe the better question is can other big men guard JO on the perimeter. And the answer is no.
the answer to that is no, but can he defend a 4 on the perimeter is also no. Not that much of a feat to admit. We are also acting like we got Levesque from UMASS as a transfer in. This kid is very raw and unproven and it's nutty our fans are putting him in as a starter...

Edit: also want to mention that you can't really have a starting 5 without JF. We didn't win him by telling him he'd come off the bench as a freshman.
I’d be surprised if the staff promised anyone a starting spot vs. the chance to compete for one.

I don’t see JF starting over JO or Ticket. I don’t see him starting at the 1 either.

So that leaves him, Bailey, and Cooper fighting for two spots. Add Singleton into that mix too if he’s not the starting PG. And Ojiako to some degree too.

I’d love to see a return of the Green & Gold teams.

Singleton
Cooper
Bailey
Ticket
Oduro

Dinkins
Polite
Fernandez
Jones
Henry/Ojiako

Play around that lineup however you’d like, but that’s a legit 11 guys deep.

And goes against KE's stated philosophy of rotations. Not gonna happen.

I don’t think his philosophy is to have the same 8 players rotating, though, either. Everyone on the roster will have an opportunity to earn minutes every week.

And the thing about the other wings on the team: Bailey isn’t a great shooter, Cooper was a liability in defense and couldn’t finish drives, and Ticket wasn’t assertive for long stretches of games last season. If JF can outplay two of those three, he will start.

Oh, I'll bet you would! I bet you would like that A LOT

Separate water fountains, less international players, no gay marriages, Larranaga, gas-guzzling Hummers, etc. etc.

I think it would be best to just accept that things are different now

Well some of that is true. Separate water fountains? YES! Yes I would!!! There, I said it.

One for us regular god-fearing normal Americans that served city water and a separate one pumping straight out of Mason pond for all of you heathen basset hound owners. And it’d still be better than you deserve.
