How is Saunders going to divy up minutes (especially at the guard position) Three guard offense alot?
PG D Russell, Rubio, McLaughlin, Nowell, Culver
SG M. Beasley, Russell, Edwards, Culver, Okogie
SF Layman, Okogie, Edwards, Culver, Hollis-Jefferson
I remember the days when we didn't have 2 good guards. so I shouldn't complain, right?
BUT good luck fellas. At least we can go with the hot hand.
BTW,,I really like Naz's game...fun to watch him!
I think we're going to see a lot of PG, C and 3 wings.
My guess is Layman only plays PF.
RHJ should be starting, but my gut says he's not in the regular rotation.
Naz and Davis likely fight for the scraps when KAT sits.
I initially thought McDaniels would spend the year at Iowa, but he's been way more impressive than Vanderbilt. Kid has tremendous upside.
My ideal starting line-up would be Rubio/Russell/Culver/RHJ/KAT.
I expect Saunders to go with Russell/Beasley/Okogie/Hernangomez/KAT.
Edwards and Culver should be prioritized over Okogie.
I'd like our PG rotation much better if it was Rubio/McLaughlin. I'm not a Russell fan in general, but I really hate his fit on this team.
Layman should be an energy guy off the bench. 5 minutes when he isn't good, 15 when his shot is falling.
Still not convinced Naz is a rotational player on a good team, but I'm glad to see him in better shape this year.
Awesome stuff David, as usual...My gut tells me Rubio/KAT will be much better the Russell/KAT. I like Okogie, but no way am I giving him more minutes than Edwards or Culver.... We need to see these two step up for the future! I also, think Saunders is going to screw over RHJ.
Which leads me to believe that Saunders is NOT the coach for this team!
