However you wanna define it, offense, defense, snipers, all around, glue guy... we don't have a clear 3rd guy but I think Dwight has been great on and off the court.

Plus this team seems like they've bought into the championship goal before everything

AD: (when asked if Vogel give him enough touches) 'I don't care about touches, only care about wins'
LeBron: (when asked about his triple doubles) 'I'll go get the rebound if we need it to win, it's all about the W'
Kuz: (when asked about his limited role) 'I'd rather win than score 20ppg on a bad team'
Dwight: (when asked about KCP's early struggles) 'that's my brother, we just gonna continue to encourage him, we need KCP to win the championship' (paraphrashing)

I would say:

1) Dwight
2) Green
3) Bradley

I think Dwight makes us a very unique team and match up on defense. Green is the perfect complement piece in the starting lineup (like a poor man's Klay), and Bradley gives us the perimeter defender we need.

But I feel like everybody has a well defined role on this team, which is refreshing. Very few redundant pieces.

Although I still think Kuz or maybe even KCP eventually gonna have to be able to fill that 3rd guy role, 15-18ppg consistently, our team is pretty deep

Most consistent has been Dwight. most effective has been Bradley, most momentum changing has been Caruso.

Overall I'd say I would put Dwight, Kuzma, Green, Bradley, Caruso all in the same boat. I feel we have 5 guys there that are supremely valuable when they are able to do what they can, well.

KCP has been very good, but only the last few weeks. He needs to do it for a long time, and when Bradley comes back, to show me he is reliable, period.

If I were to rank them

1) Avery Bradley. Best on ball defender in a perimeter dominated NBA. Good midrange game and adequate 3pt shooter.

2) Danny Green. 2nd best perimeter defender. Clutch 3pt sniper with championship pedigree

3) Dwight. Former DPOY. Been to the Finals (and lost ). Should be part of death lineup to close games/quarters. Him and AD in tandem? Yes please.

4) Kuz. I rank the above players ahead of him, at least this year. He's easily the 3rd best scorer on the roster,, but we gotta defend. All 3 are better defenders.

5) Caruso. He needs more minutes. Defensively he's solid.

6) Rondo. Yep, that guy. He's the 2nd best ball handler on the team after Bron. He should help facilitate the offense when Bron sits

7) KCP. He's been ballin. So much so, will AB immediately get his job back when he returns from hairline fracture? I think psychologically, re-inserting KCP in with the starters helped him get out of his funk. If he goes back to the bench will he revert back? Hope not, but I'd rather AB starting.

8) Javelle. You take the good and the bad with him. He's growing on me.

They are up and down. Play them more when they are doing well. Sit them when they are not

Other guys are situational

Caruso is going to win any popularity contest. That put back dunk tonight was off the chain!

Pretty much my thoughts exactly.

I'm really curious to see how that starting lineup looks once Bradley comes back.

Caruso and Dwight
I really wish Vogel didnt take so long to put those 2 in the game... thats why we often be playing catchup after shaky first quarters

I don't know if this 3rd guy (15ish ppg) by committee is sustainable, we need one, Kuz not ready for that mantle yet

Tough call, I went with Dwight but am really happy with Bradley, Green, and Caruso, too. The only one that gives me headaches is Kuzma.

1. Dwight
2. Bradley. He'd be my #1 pick but he's missed a lot of games.
3. Caruso. He needs to shoot better, but his defense is surprisingly good.
4. Rondo. The more lob targets we have (AD, Javale, Dwight), the better Rondo looks.
5. Quinn Cook.
6. Kuzma. He's regressed. I know he'll improve, but right now, his defense is terrible and he's a turnover machine. It doesn't look like his head is in these games.
