I am ok if he starts but I would do a rotation like Portland. Either Rubio or Dlo come out at the 5-6min mark the reenters at the end of the 1st early 2nd as the other sits. They can both start but I want Ricky running our back up when Kat/Dlo is off the court.
I also think Ricky will have the least ego coming off the bench. So if that is an issue he would have no problem run as a 6th man.
That’s probably the biggest thing. Either Rubio or Russell needs to always be out there. They’ll play together some, and it doesn’t matter if Rubio starts, but Rubio will essentially have to be Russell’s backup.
Our guards rotation is awesome tbh.
If somehow the rest of positions works out well, we can make some noise, no doubt.
