    New Starting Lineup Question

    For those of you who didn't catch the game tonight, our starting lineup was much different. It consisted of MacIntosh, Clark, Hubalek, Marsden, and W. Johnson. Note that Taylor is missing. The announcers never mentioned why, so if anybody knows why he didn't start (i.e. disciplinary), only guessed incorrectly that we would start in a 2-3 zone with two bigs and W. Johnson down low. Which one of these statements would you buy, and why?

    1) Good to see Coach McD trying something different, even if it doesn't work.

    2) It's sad that we have no semblance of a consistent starting lineup.

    McD is beginning to look like Mac who said he had no one pushing the starters during the season. We really do not have one great dribbler on this team.

    I don't even believe that we have one SOLID dribbler on this team, let alone great. I'd rate MacIntosh a 6/10, Taylor a 6/10 (too many TO's and always trying to do everything himself AKA Stinsonitis), and Dunson a 6/10 (haven't seen anything better out of him). So to me, that looks like a lot of mediocrity.

    Dunson and Taylor did not or would not start because they were late to the bus for the morning shoot around. Eric Heft said the bus left the team hotel without them. Walters and Heft both praised Coach McD for not tolerating any crap during the recent losing streak.

    That's good. Gotta love some actual discipline.

    Probably made no difference. This team has played 3 good games all season when Jiri had a fire lit under him. Waiting for the seond fire.

    It looked like the team bus left more than Dodie and Mike at the hotel...
