DJC's post below got me to thinking about this... who would your starting 5 be on opening day. Here's mine and my explanation why:
1) Mikhail Torrance- Making the assumption that we'll need more point production from Ronald Steele, Torrance is at this moment in time our best PG.
2) Ronald Steele- he will be depended upon to drain the outside shot.
3) Justin Knox- he's the big guy with the most upside. I think he can develop into something special.
4) Alonzo Gee- talented, but erratic. I think Steele's return makes him a better player.
5) Demetrius Jemison- He's another one that improved as the year ended. Unless he regressed in the offseason I think for the time being he should be in the starting five.
First 3 off the bench:
1) Brandon Hollinger- as long as he continues to drain the 3 he's the 1st option.
2) Senario Hillman- I can see him moving into the starting lineup IF he improves his perimeter game.
3) JaMychal Green- just because of the hype. I have to see him play college competition before I make judgement on him.
Fighting for minutes:
1) Anthony Brock- I know nothing about him and until I see him play I can't comment.
2) Yamene Coleman- if we're to believe our offense will be uptempo Yamene might get 5 minutes a game.
3) Andrew Steele- I see him playing minutes before conference play... sparingly afterwards.
We really could go 10 deep, but DJC pointed out in his post below that CMG is going to settle on 8 in the rotation. I'm not going to beat the dead horse on this...
I know I'm in the minority with Jemison and Torrance in the starting lineup. I don't think either plays more than 20 minutes a game, but I really think that lineup gives us to best chance to win to start the season.
