^Overdoing it: we’re supposed to overdo it.

That’s what this board is for. That’s what fandom is.

I don’t come here for sober, reasoned, Olympian analysis.

Drunken, Dionysian, Olympian analysis? In vino veritas to mix metaphors.

Litter with alliteration. Some people mix metaphors and others makes medicines... mixed messages from the stresses of not knowing what the emission means

Dionysian somehow sounded like beemission 2 Google Translator

I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so. And so is the Google Translator
After the Wizards GM really went and did it by having an imaginative, strong, draft day. I totally feel this as well;

Speaking of Bertans I just had a wildass thought…

Oh I know that Davis is a power forward but is there any reason why he could not start at small forward? The best way to increase his trade value is to get his numbers up. He is a bionic shooter. I think he is a smart positional defender or else he never would’ve been a SA Spur rotational player.

Dinwiddie
Beal
Bertans
Kuzma
Harrell/Gafford (24 mins each until TB is healthy)

Sixth man Rui as a rover PF/SF first sub in.

I mean I do see him as more of a SF but, I think Rui is the better player and the more natural SF. He's a far better defender a decent enough 3pt shooter and I think he deserves the start along with Kuz .

That was a key premise of mine in the Line-ups and Analysis thread:

I am also of the mind that we should start our best line-up, and don't think Brooks took full advantage of what we already have on the roster. We are spending significant $$ on a guy who has proven to have the best +/- effect on the team, it seems wasteful to me to squander that as though he were a bench specialist role player. Footslow perhaps, but with a solid understanding of team defense, he needs a mistake eraser behind him, with the team playing good defensive principles of funneling the attacker to the shotblocker. On offense, he opens up so much of the floor for our dribble-drive attack. That gives a baseline of:

SDw
Beal
...
Bertans
Gafford

As for player "..." hell, let them fight it out. Or base it on match-ups.

Bertans is going to play as a perimeter player anyway, a giant guard, I feel like whomever is in the "..." spot should be able to hit an outside shot, and defend at PF/SF both. In my mind I see Rui, if his 3pt shot from the playoffs was legit and sustainable, and if his effort on 1-on-1 defense is consistent, I can live with his deficiencies in team defense...

But ... I can see Kuz in that spot. He is long, is a mismatch in speed for many PFs. His defense is better in match-ups than in team concepts. He can hit an outside shot and as Dinwiddie referred to, he is good at blowing past a close-out defender. Footspeed, laterally, I think Rui has an advantage, Rui also has 2" reach in his wingspan. But Kuzma rebounds better, so Bertan's deficiencies in that regard will need some additional help.-
