    Point Guard
    Chauncey Billups will lead the team but due to his old age his minutes will be significantly lower than what he used to get. he will definitely be an option during crunch time.
    Brandon Jennings, a spit-fire guard will mainly back him up and anchor our running game, providing major scoring from the bench.
    Evan Turner will see some action here when we match up against taller PGs, his defense and length will be key in containing the other team's play makers

    Shooting Guard
    Paul George will be the main guy to man the SG spot, he has 3pt shooting, athleticism, length and defense. and did i mention he's 6'10"?
    Evan Turner will be the guy to backup George, he can also handle the ball and help with the play making
    Tracy McGrady can provide some offense and veteran leadership

    Small Forward
    Rudy Gay is the Net's main perimeter scorer and finisher on the break, which we plan to have a lot of because of our defense, a good defender and a clutch scorer too
    Paul George due to his size can also play some SF
    Tracy McGrady will see some time here too

    Power Forward
    Al Horford's natural position, he will be the main post scorer, he has the size to bang down low and the quickness to guard the smaller PFs.
    Larry Sanders is very athletic and will provide hustle with the back up unit
    Rudy Gay can get limited minutes here, when we play our quick lineup

    Javale McGee will be our man in the middle, providing help defense and tough interior defense. he will also provide comic relief every once in a while with his boneheaded plays
    Brandan Wright is almost like McGee, the length and athleticism will make him a good with on-ball and help defense.
    Al Horford can also see some action here with our small and quick lineup


    Cleveland Cavaliers

    PG Devin Harris (I like him better as a starter than Andre Miller - he is capable of more offense, and is a moderately good 3P shooter)
    SG Demar Derozan (slasher)
    SF Caron Butler (solid defender/slasher)
    PF David Lee
    C Marc Gasol (love our starting frontcourt duo)

    SF Hedo Turkoglu - very versatile reserve, can play multiple positions
    SG Jamal Crawford - 6th man - quick scoring option
    SF Richard Jefferson - proven vet presence -
    PG Andre Miller - excellent backup PG
    PF Dejuan Blair - solid reserve PF/banger
    PF Tyler Hansborough (for some hard fouls and crazy hustle plays off the bench)
    SF Steve Novak (pure 3-point specialist - best percentage in the NBA)

As of now, just about all of our perimeter shooting will come off the bench, with Turkoglu, Crawford, Novak, and Jefferson (with some corner 3's). In the starting lineup, Harris and Butler can hit from outside when needed.

    The pick-and-roll game will be excellent w/ Harris and either Lee or Gasol.....our starting 5 should be able to pick-and-roll teams to death. We plan to use our superior depth to adapt to whatever is needed as far as matchups. Turkoglu and Crawford will both be awesome 6th men, depending on our team's need. Butler and Derozen will penetrate and get to the foul line quite a bit.

    Turkoglu is a key to this team as he can play multiple positions (SG, SF, PF) and is a great passer out of any position. He provides depth all over the court supposing there's any foul trouble. Like the Indiana Pacers, we plan to be one of the most physical teams in the NBA, being that foul trouble won't cripple us with our team depth. We hope to get at least 4 or 5 good hard fouls from Blair and Psycho-T when facing the league's top bigs and penetrators. Our 2nd unit is almost as strong as our 1st, which will be good for us and bad for the opponent as the game wears on. I'd say we have the most depth in this entire league...the key is finding out if our starters pull through.

    Depth Chart

    PG 1 - Harris 2 - Miller 3 - Crawford
    SG 1 - Derozen 2 - Crawford 3 - Turkoglu
    SF 1 - Butler 2 - Turkoglu 3 - Jefferson 4- Novak (3p specialist)
    PF 1 - Lee 2- Blair 3 - Turkoglu
    C 1 - Gasol 2- Hansbrough 3- Blair
