Thread: Which 5-man lineups are you most looking forward to/will be used most frequently?

  1. #1

    Which 5-man lineups are you most looking forward to/will be used most frequently?

    Man, there are so many different lineups I am looking forward to seeing with this group!

    Starting lineup - best defensive
    Lonzo
    Jrue
    Ingram
    Zion
    Favors (or Hayes if opposing big isn't too large or offensive)

    Closing lineup - more shooting
    Jrue
    Reddick
    Hart/Moore/Melli (whoever is most on fire)
    Zion
    Favors/Hayes

    Bully-Ball lineup:
    Jrue
    Ingram (or Reddick for some spacing)
    Zion
    Favors
    Hayes

    Super Speed lineup:
    Lonzo
    Jrue
    Naw
    Zion
    Hayes (or Ingram, so literally anyone who gets the defensive rebound can start the break)

    Zion at the point surrounded by shooters-pick 4:
    Naw
    Reddick
    Hart
    Moore
    Melli

    Jrue and Zion surrounded by 3 shooters


    Offensive Death Lineup?:
    Jrue
    Naw (so many moves, and from all over the court!)
    Ingram
    Zion
    Hayes (for lobs, pnr, offensive board cleanup), or Reddick for shooting

    All the rebounds:
    Lonzo
    Ingram
    Zion
    Hayes
    Favors

    And I Just think this would be fun:
    Jrue
    Naw
    Hart
    Zion
    Hayes


    Note,: This all assumes Ingram and Zo's 3-ball remain unreliable. Hopefully I am a wrong. If they can get it up around 35 or 36% at a decent usage next season... Oh boy.

    Just looking at all of those possibilities is fun. I can't wait for the season to start.

    The future looks awesome, but of course they couldn't pay everyone.
    Lonzo
    NAW
    Ingram
    Zion
    Hayes

    Next season:

    Jrue
    Reddick
    Ingram
    Zion
    Favors

    Anyone who has been on this forum while I've been here knows that for me, the one thing I love watching more than pretty much anything is intense defense. Guys who can't be bothered on that end of the floor tick me off. I got snapped at more than once for calling out garbage D from guys who were playing otherwise pretty well last season, and that's probably never going to change.

    As a result, the super defensive Lonzo/Jrue/Ingram/Zion/Favors lineup is going to be lots of fun for me, no doubt about that.

    I'm also interested, just from a kind of analytic standpoint, about going extremely middle. Not super smallball, not super big, but where everyone is basically 6'5-6'9. Lonzo/Jrue/Miller/Melli/Zion. Something like that.
    Zion ''The Earthquake'' Williamson

    Paying attention to the next draft too early.

    Super small ball:
    F: Zion
    F: Ingram
    G: JJ
    G: Jrue
    G: Lonzo

    Intriguing:
    C: Hayes
    PF: Zion
    G: JJ
    G: Jrue
    G: NAW

    C: Hayes
    PF: Zion
    SF: Ingram
    SG: JJ
    PG: Jrue

    I think Starting lineup, as our roster stands will be

    Zo
    Jrue
    Ingram
    Zion
    Favors

    But since you asked Favorite lineup I would Have to say

    NAW
    jrue
    Kenrich
    Zion
    Hayes (I really Hope this kid develops a 35%+ 3 ball)

    Bottom line is, we have so much potential and a lot of good players. So either some guys will not get decent mins. Or we will be running a 10-13 guy rotation.

    I’m hoping this will be my favorite lineup:

    C: Hayes
    PF: Zion
    SF: Ingram
    SG: JJ
    PG: Jrue

    That will be one awesome lineup if Hayes looks good when the real stuff hits the fan. I can’t wait to see a lineup with Jrue, JJ, & Ingram cause it will be dangerous. That’s 3 guys that can get you 20+ any given night & possibly most nights. Add Zion & Hayes to those 3, do what?!?! Jrue running the pick & roll with either of those two will be fun to watch. JJ running off Zion screens cause he ought to be a beast screen setter with that size. Jrue, Ingram, & Zion can take you off the dribble and either get easy buckets, throw a lob to Hayes, or hit JJ for an open 3. Then you got Lonzo, NAWlins, D-Fav, Moore, Hart, & Okafor. We gonna have an unreal bench. I thought the Raptors had one of the best last year, but we might have an even better one this year. I can’t wait to see what Nico Melli looks like. Hopefully he looks like your usual stretch 4 Euro big man that can hit open 3s.

    jrue
    Redick
    NAW
    Zion
    Favors

    I'd also like to see
    Point Ingram
    Ball+Jackson+Hayes
    Zion+Melli
    Favors+spread floor
    Ball+Jrue+Hart
    Redick+Moore

  9. #9
    Lonzo
    Jrue
    Ingram
    Zion
    Favors

    Should be the starting 5. Iím also excited to see NAW and Hayes on the floor together they seem to already be developing real chemistry.

    I hope we get spread pick and roll with:

    Jrue
    Redick
    Hart
    Ingram
    Zion

    I have so many lineups I canít wait to see which makes it impossible to list one. Just a few lineups Iím most excited to see. The crazy thing is my favorite lineups are going to be dominant in 2-3 years. IMO Jrue is someone who can play for a longtime having a skill set that ages well. Especially if he can improve his 3 point shot as he gets to the backend of his career. Heís got at least 5 years at a high level if he stays injury free. The future of this team is insanely good. We still have a boatload if draft picks in the near future and if we can just hit on 1 or 2 of them would be huge!

    Ball/NAW/Ingram/Zion/Hayes
