I get wanting to keep Steve fresh and not expose him to fast guards etc., but he will still have to chase Thompson all night through a ton of screens etc.
What about making other teams matchup against us????
I don't get why MDA can't adjust even a little and demonstrate some intelligence.
Run the team as it is set up, and mix starters with bench guys off the bench, esp when Blake is back. Keep guys in their natural positions for the most part, but just adjust and tweak with the following:
Nash, Blake, Morris
Kobe, Meeks, Morris
Ron, Kobe, Jamison
Gasol, Jamison, Hill
Dwight, Hill, Gasol
To waste a pure energy and hustle guy like Hill, and a vet like Jamison, makes no sense to me at all. We will wear Nash, Kobe, Ron, and Gasol out by March with an 8 man rotation. MDA -- adapt and adjust - you moron.
