It should be these 8 when everyone's healthy.

Frank Baker
THJ
Dotson MCD
KP
WHG KOQ

Everyone else can fill in the gaps and/or waive towels from the bench.

If everyone's healthy & you're starting that lineup, you are not focusing on development.

And if the all youth rotation somehow gets W's, no one is going to complain.

Last year BKN game as the prime example. KP & WHG carried us to victory. Everyone was ecstatic.

theres more to developing players then throwing them on the court. you seriously think throwing rookies out to the wolves is the best idea ? in new york city ?

Frank should develop slowly like Antetokounmpo did.

Dotson's about 6'5 in shoes. He's a SG best equipped guarding 2s and 1s. He's smaller than THjr, CLee and Frank. Let's stop penciling him in as a 3. Thanks in advance.

It will be the first of many starting lineup over this 21 win season. Frank will be in there eventually.

Anyone suggesting the starting of Sessions or Jack should be perma banned. No green font.

Name a winning team who would start either of them. Especially one that doesn't have much expectations. Exactly

Them boys wouldn't even get much burn on last year's Knicks :lol:

Hoping Kanter plays great and we can trade him.

Isn't that what the organization keeps on saying? Then freaking do it, already.

Willy is better than kanter at defense, passing and a million times better than kanter at moving without the ball. However enes is better at getting his own shot in the post.

I love this line-up. When Frank gets healthy and takes sessions spot. We will have all 5 guys that can shoot, 4 of them that are great at moving without the ball And playing defense. And 1 guy that can draw double teams in the post.

This is the worst possible scenario for fans that want to tank though.

Honestly, I could care less about the wolves. There will always be a peanut gallery.

Frank has played in a professional league. He'll have his ups and downs, but we have to go through the growing pains no matter what. What better time than a season with zero expectations?

Dotson is 23 & in probably the best shape of any player on this roster. No reason he can't start from day one.

I'm all in on the development this year. I'm hoping the organization is as well. Right now it doesn't seem like they are, but let's see what happens when everyone's healthy.

Dotson player 4 years of college and is 23, i agree hes been around. Frank is 19. he went 1 for 7 in his only 18 minutes. if we start that kid and he plays 3 games and shoots something like 5 for 28 hes dead man walking. hes young, needs to start off slowly. thats what development is. getting your feet wet before you jump in the pool. it isnt the 2kesque way everyone here perceives. and the expectations for this kid are far from zero.

frank/baker/sessions/burke
lee/timmy/lance
mcdermott/dotson/kuz
porzingis/beasley/noah
kanter/hernangomez/KOQ

but some are interchangeable, depending on need.

i'd like to see ball movement and defense:

frank
baker
lee
porzingis
hernangomez

ideally, i'd like to see this:


frank
baker
dotson
porzingis
hernangomez

minutes also going to mcdermott. i'd like to see the young guys getting the bulk. but you need vets and fit in there. not a lot of scoring with that crew, but they may play well together like '04 pistons
