#1 Line Up changes coming
Fri Nov 16, 2012 3:34 pm by loot
Randy Wittman said that lineup changes could be coming for the Wizards.
This certainly makes sense for the only NBA team without a win. Kevin Seraphin has played well this season in his 22 minutes per game off the bench and one would think he's earned the starting distinction. He's coming off a 16-point game and we'd sign off on picking him up in some formats. Bradley Beal has also been struggling and has made just 16 percent of his 25 field goals in the last two games, but hanging on for a little longer seems like the right move for the rookie. It could even involve Trevor Ariza moving out of the starting lineup.

Ariza to the bench.... Singleton or Webster in? I'd say Webster probably. Seraphin in as well?

Seraphin HAS to be starting. It makes no sense that hes not.

Rotation thread #3
Guys on a message board could do a better job managing the Wizards than Ernie Grunfeld.

Wittman should try some theme lineups.
SOMEONE GOTTA SHOOT (or turn it over) -- Price, Crawford, Martin, Seraphin, Barron
NEED A MISS -- Price, Beal, Ariza, Okafor, Singleton
NO PASSING -- Barron, Martin, Okafor, Vesely, Beal

Within 5 games, I expect Livingston to take over the starting 1 spot. I would like to see SL, Beal, Martel, Booker, Seraphin.

I want to see Vesely run the point. It's time to think outside the box.

I'm looking at that starting five and I don't see how a little tweak could give us a more coherent lineup.
The pieces simply don't appear to fit together very well. No credible post option, nobody that can break down a defender and get into the lane and most importantly no reliable mid range game by anybody in the starting five.
With the exception of Ariza and perhaps Beal, I'd completely blow this starting lineup apart.
I know some people around here like Booker, but to me he seems completely overmatched as starting PF. He's a blackhole on offense and can not be counted to consistently produce on the defensive glass.
Singleton isn't a natural 4, but I thought he's been quite effective playing the position in spot duty.
..let's keep in mind that while the Wizards were trading for Okafor and Ariza, giving away a draft pick and cap room, bypassing the free agent market and rejecting a trade for Harden, Leonsis was publicly congratulating himself for being smart. - Nivek

I wonder if the new line up will include a new GM
