Similar to my thoughts on the "combo guard" poll -- Cannot imagine this is actually a serious question, unless we end up going with a four or five guard lineup. Is there any reason to think that it is not an absolute one thousand percent guarantee that Khyri Thomas starts?

Maybe I'm not understanding the question/poll.

Maybe we got the easy questions with small forward and combo guard and it will heat up a little as far as controversy with point guard, center and power forward (or maybe stretch 4 is more descriptive for the Bluejays).

Tazz starts for sure.

As far as backup goes, it could be Ronnie or Kobe. I suppose even Alexander or Ballock could fill in there was well if needed.

To say that Harrell had a solid ending to the season is somewhat of an understatement. Whether Mac actually starts next season giving him solid, regular minutes isn't known, but I think Ronnie has 6th man (at least) written all over him. I think he's best at SF but I'm ok with him filling in at pretty much every position for a period of time with the exception of PF and C of course.

I think he can play a bit of time at PF also. He's going to get pushed around, but there are matchups where we'll want to go small and stretch the floor and when the opposing PF is a smaller guy

I wouldn't disagree. Similar to Hegner playing occasionally at center when Patton was in foul trouble (prior to ZH returning from injury) in that he (Ronnie) has the height (6'8") to certainly fill-in if needed...you just know he's not going to give "like-for-like" production.

Tugs will start at SF. Tazz/Mitch/Kobe will sub in at SF.

Tazz is the best all around player on the roster. He's not coming off the bench. IMO, of course.

My thinking also. When Foster graduates he goes to the 2
