Good afternoon to everyone. I'm a long time lurker first time poster and will probably be more involved going forward. In reading a lot of the comments on articles and reading many of the articles themselves I know many of us struggle with what our lineup should look like and we have many different and varying opinions. Looking at the boxscores of our games it is not uncommon for us to have a 10, 11, 12, 13 man rotation. I'm a big proponent of such large number rotations early in the nba season but believe that if you are a competitive team looking at a playoff spot you should be down to a 8 man or 9 man rotation. I have no stats on how many teams conform to this or even if it is common practice among other teams, but I'm currently a believer. I guess this comes down to the jist of my post: 2 questions. Do you believe to the theory of smaller/ tighter rotations? If so what should be ours? My current list of players that I would like this shortened to is Mo, Burks, Hayward, Foye, Paul, Al, Favors, Kanter. This leaves DMC and Marvin the destoyer seeing little to no time.
With this group of eight I think it leans toward playing the "big" lineup more often along with getting quite a bit more time for Burks at the PG. Anyways general question would love feedback and opinions. You all have a great day. 3rd question just for kicks preference Kabongo/Burke.
