He doesn't name the starters because all the players are exactly the same -

Here's who I am hoping for the starting lineup by season's end: Harris, Hayward,
Howard, Favors, Jefferson. Now before people start bashing me for putting
howard as the starting sf, just think for a second. I am aware that everyone
doesnt expect howard to do much for the team this year, but remember what
o'connor said about howard: he is a no-risk, but possibly high reward signing.
So I am just hoping that he has fully recovered and is back to playing at that
high level he did in dallas. So that's just my hope for what happens, I never
said thats gonna happen
Considering how Favors & Hayward went against the Lakers last time I would
start the following1. Harris 2. Hayward3. Howard4.
Favors5. JeffersonThen1. Watson / Tinsley2. Burks
/ Bell3. Miles / Evans4. Milsap / Evans5. KanterI
would ilke at some stage have a young running team on against the older Lakers
who will be playing their 3 game in 3 nights1. Burks2.
Hayward3. Miles4. Evans5. Kanter or FavorsThe Jazz
may get a win tonight if they play & get coached well.GO JAZZ
@Wombat1247"The Jazz may get a win tonight if they play &
get coached well."With comments like that, you should become a
TV commentator. Next time, just say "the Jazz may get a win tonight if
they score more points than the other team."
Corbin is showing his immaturity as an NBA head coach. He is supposed to be a
professional but is acting like an amateur.Is this some form of
gamesmanship? Doesn't he realize the fans are dying to know who he is going to
start. Does he really have so little regard for us that he would pull a childish
stunt like this?With that off my chest, I'll take a shot at
projecting a starting line-up. If Corbin is honest that his starting line-up
will depend on match-ups, then I guess the following:Harris: firmly
deserving to be starting PGHayward: length gives Kobe fits even when he
was a rookieMillsap: better than Artest in every wayFavors: earned
starting nod in pre-seasonJefferson: best post presence on the teamIf Corbin was just pontificating when he said he'd base his starters on
match-ups, then I think the following will start most games in the early season
regardless of opponent:HarrisBellHaywardMillsap or
Favors (I can't decide what's going on in Ty's mind, if anything)Jefferson
If Corbin is smart he will start the game with experienced players.HarrisHaywardMilesMillsapJeffersonThey
know the Laker players, they have been there, done that. The other players can
ease into game and the flow later on.....Kantor and Burks would get
very limited minutes in LA. I wouldn't play Howard or Tinsley at all tonight.
