We could just promote J Green to the starting PF spot have Harkless play backup 3 and let Fi and Harrell play 4 and 5

I think we need to totally try this out. Doc is being stubborn about those Fi and Green minutes though. I think the best thing to do would be to buy two Austin Rivers jerseys and put those on both players. They will end the week as permanent starters.

Yeah and I believe Fi might be a inch taller than Green. Fi will have to get a bit stronger to help out in the paint but then again might just have Harkless crash the glass with Harrell

I thought Green was gonna be the starter instead of Moe, but the defense has worked a lot better with 3 wings so I understand him wanting to start with Moe. I’m not a fan of any of the 2 bigs line ups, if we want room for Mfi there needs to be a consolidation trade where we send out Moe and one of the bigs for a better 3&D wing. There’s not enough minutes for both bigs as is.

Bumping this thread for the first time in a while because the AC Clippers are looking like they'll be a lot of fun this season.

It would be a great sign if Boston can score with reasonable FG% and 3P% in AC this season.

He has NBA length and likes to take it to the hole, and the athleticism and raw talent seems to be there (along with a 78.5 FT% in college.)

To me, Keon is highly reminiscent of Kawhi. First, he's a defense-first type player who's willing to leave it all out on that end. Second He appears to have the makings of a mid-range rainmaker with an eerily similar wrinkle in his shot mechanics to Kawhi. Most players in this era are what is called "turn shooters," meaning that when they shoot they rotate their lead foot away from the basket and align their (lead) knee, hip, and (shooting) shoulder to the basket. However, Keon (and Kawhi) don't do this. Instead, they align their toes to the basket and finish with their shoulders, knees, and hips square with the basket. The telltale sign of this shooting motion is where the shooter leaves their hand in the follow-through: if their shooting hand is left outward at a Y-type angle relative to their body, then they are a turn shooter; but if it is directly in front of them then they are a traditional shooter.
