I think Fran said that Josh O was still fat in mind, if not body, and will take awhile to be a factor.

62 starts in a row. Last time he came off the bench, Maishe was still in the rotation. Been a minute.

His own father has already said he isn't starting. Not sure if you missed that.

I trust Fran to set the starting lineup and also who gets minutes.

Fran always finds that one lineup that has no scorer. I refer to that group as the “ready for vacation” group.

Connor will be good this year. Two bad hips aside, he was deferring way too much the past couple of years. You have to be a threat to score to be effective, and he was early in his career. He needs to stop thinking about shooting so much.

I’m not sure why those 4 I threw out there is so controversial.

Pretty nice little first and second team we got here:

JoeT / Ulis
bohannon / Sandfordt
Patrick / Perkins
Keegan / Connor & Kris
Rebraca / Josh O

I even like Kris as a starter assuming he is even close to what Keegan has been. But probably not until a half dozen games or more are played and he shows the kind of spark we saw last year.

I can buy Connor being better than he was to close the season. Not sure I ever see him as a legitimate threat to score.

Who is going to get us started on a 3 page breakdown guessing each players minutes?!

I agree he needs to stop thinking about shooting - the answer is no, you shouldn’t shoot that shot; stop thinking about it and pass the ball to someone else.

I’m really not sold on the idea of bohannon and Patrick playing extended minutes together. Teams with good wing players will eat them alive. I’d like to see them each mostly paired with more athletic wing players; bohannon with Kris and Patrick with Perkins.

I will, if someone else can start the convo about how tall each player actually is compared to what is listed.

I'm not seeing Sandfort as a 2.

He's part of the forward logjam.

He's a bit of an enigma for me. He clearly is a good shooter, in fact might be the second best shooter on the team. But I don't think he's a 2 either. Doesn't really strike me as a 3 either. Not sure he's fluid or athletic enough to play there but it might be where he ends up.
