    Default Triano Might Finally Change the Starting Lineup

    So, any predictions as to what the change might be? My guess is is that he'll just swap Jack and Jose. Nothing too outrageous.

    Any other predictions?

    Default Jay needs to think a little bigger

    This really isn't a huge deal the raptors are lucky to be one of the few teams that have two relieble point gaurds the real problem is turkoglu who i belive should be subbed with amir jonson

    It's likely Calderon for Jack. Which won't make a lick of difference. Actually may be a bit negative as I like Calderon coming in and pairing with Johnson.

    Lineup changes ain't gonna help. Unless it is Banks for Calderon, and anybody for Bargs, the defense will still suck.

    the problem is defence. so unless the sub reflects that, it is useless.

    therefore, Calderon for Jack will just see us getting upset at Calderon again for his poor defence, and not being as effective as he has been coming off the bench

    DeMar. Out.

    He's a decent prospect but we can't win with a decent prospect starting against some of the deadliest players in the league. Antoine Wright would be the best bet for the starting lineup right now and the only change I'd make.

    you want to sub a PF/C for a SF? That makes no sense.

    The obvious weakest link is Turkoglu, but they're never bench him in favour of Weems.

    I don't think changing the starting lineup is going to change anything.

    Not unless it's Bargnani going to the bench and Amir taking his place as a starter.

    I don't think switching either of the guards spots will have any significant effect.

    Switch out the entire team for D leaguers, Golden State did it to great effect against us.

    Let's try something completely different.

    Starters

    Bosh - Johnson - Weems
    Calderon - DeRozan

    Basically call every play to be Calderon-Bosh like the Smitch days, but fill out the starters with athletic young guns to play D, create havoc and take whatever comes their way without having anything called for them,

    On most nights, the 3 young starers wont play more than 20 mins, leaving plenty of time for the guys on the bench.

    Sub in Bargnani, Turkoglu and Jack early, to keep Calderon and Bosh fresh, and Johnson out of foul trouble. These three guys should end up laying more minutes that Johnson/Weems/DeRozan most nights, despite not starting. Throw in Wright as a stopper when Weems or DeRozan get over their head on D.

    Stick with those 9 guys, using Evans, Belinelli, and Banks only rarely.

    All of you Johnson fans lets get this straight.

    He won't be starting again this year unless there were to be an injury to CB4 or Bargnani that would keep them off the court.

    Two possible changes

    Wright for DeRozan
    Calderon for Jack

    Making both of those changes would open the court even more on offense in the first quarter as Calderon and Wright are better three point shooters than Jack and DeRozan. This would hopefully allow the Raptors to score more in the first quarter and not fall behind. Same as in the third quarter.

    Those are the two changes I would make.

    Calderon going into the starting line up with Hedo still there will only amplify the problems even moreso. I hope Triano does this and the team gets pummeled into oblivion so everyone understands this.

    I'd dress Banks and sub him in for DeMar if the opposing PG starts carving up our defense. I'd let him cover the PG and run/share the point with JJ or Jose. Its not like DeMar is giving us much offense anyways and it would slow down or at least make it more difficult for the opposition PG.

    @LBF those are my thoughts exactly on the Banks situation.

    I also dont see why everyone thinks Antoine Wright is a defensive stopper?? IMO Weems has quicker feet and shows more effort on defense.
