Cleary a big debate on LG currently. Some want Ingram out for Hart, some want Kuzma out for Hart, others want Lonzo out for Hart/KCP and some want two of the three out.

Only guys we all agree on are Lebron and McGee. So who should it be?

Might as well play the young guys rather than the rent-a-vets who will be gone next year. I don't really care which of the young guys plays.

Same starters. Sub in Josh Hart earlier for Brandon Ingram. Transfer his minutes more to the bench unit, where they need shot creation in Rondo's absence.

But if I were to be more bold, put Kuzma on the bench, have Ingram at 3, start Hart or KCP at 2.

Here's a lineup I wouldn't mind seeing starting.

It's a bit thinking outside the box lineup.

Lonzo
KCP
Svi
Lebron
Mcgee

I know it's a bit crazy putting Svi in the starting lineup but Lebron needs shooters around him and KCP and Svi would provide him that.

Then you would have a second unit of

Rondo
Hart
BI
Kuz
Chandler

Rondo
KCP/Lance
Ingram
LBJ
McGee

Lonzo or Ingram
Hart
Svi
Kuzma/Beasley
Mo/Chandler

For me the key is to put Lonzo or Ingram with the young shooters... and not with Lance under any circumstance.

Lance has been playing well... but he's like a bad version of Kobe who takes over the game... and can only get you so far.

Let LBJ play with the vets he forced management to sign.

I'd start with:

Lonzo
Hart
BI
LBJ
JaVale.

If there weren't any politics involved, I'd try:

Lonzo
Hart
LBJ
Kuz
JaVale

BI with Rondo/Lance though is pretty much a disaster though. So it's just a poor roster construction all around.

Pretty simple. Hart (even KCP) in for Ingram.

Roster construction does suck. Could give Svi Lance’s minutes since he was drafted to help fill our shooting void .. instead of just riding the bench.

This is quite the disaster lineup.

Rondo/BI/LBJ should never see the court together. All 3 need the ball in their hands and LBJ should frankly have it over them.

so the team was supposedly designed to have multiple ball handlers to ease the burden on Lebron....yet no other ball handlers should be on the court with Lebron because since he is the best ball handler on the team, he should always have the ball?

It is clear that BI is the odd man out... he isnt part of any good 5 man lineup for us...

Unless BI embraces the role that he played on his rookie season, else I would go with

Ball
Hart/KCP
James
Kuzma
McGee

Yes. B/c having THREE guys who really want to handle the ball (and none really are good off ball) is a problem.

I'm fine with 2 of them together but not 3. And the poster also included Lance which would be even worse if all 4 played together.

that is fine, but you must have an issue with the way the roster was constructed.....because clearly the intent was to have more than 2 guys that can create with the ball in their hands on the court.

I don't have a problem switching Ingram for Kuzma or Hart... I don't care who starts

I'm only saying that Lonzo and Ingram will do better without being put in a lineup where they have to defer to vets, and with one that has shooters.

Keep them away from Lance.

Let Lance freestyle with LBJ.

I do. Didn't like the opportunity cost of Lance.

I actually like Lonzo's fit with LBJ. I don't think LBJ needs more ball pounding PG play from a guy like Rondo. I think BI is the most affected out of all our young core. But he has to adapt, not the other way around.
