FalconFanSince1970 Posted July 9, 2015 Share Posted July 9, 2015 I see a lot of banter, worry and concern about the three spot on this forum. Rest easy my feathered friends, rest easy. This is a Bud system, which can be productive without a small forward who's a slasher. Bud doesn't need an iso, dribble, dribble, shoulder fake, iso, dribble, dribble, drive with three seconds on the clock kinda guy. That would kill his system Joe Johnson style.His system can work with a three that can shoot, pass, rebound, screen and play defense. I mean Demarre was not Lebron James folks. There are several players on the roster that can play that role. Sap, Sef, Korver, Baze and maybe even Hardaway. None can defend like DeMarre but they all bring something he didn't. And yes Sap can play the three. He did for many years.It's too early to predict who will be our starting five. Especially considering we might make more moves. If we had to tip off tonight, I can think of at least ten different combos that could work, depending on who we're facing. And no, none of them would be able to guard LeBron one on one. DeMarre couldn't either:1 -Teague, Korver, Sap, Horford, Splitter2 -Teague, Korver, Sef, Sap, Horford3 -Teague, Korver, Baze, Sap, Horford4 -Teague, Korver, Sap, Horford, Moose5 -Teague, Hardaway, Korver, Sap, Horford6 -Schroeder, Teague, Korver, Sap, Horford7 -Schroeder, Teague, Sap, Horford, Splitter8 -Schroeder, Teague, Sap, Horford, Moose9 -Schroeder, Teague, Baze, Sap, Horford10 -Schroeder, Teague, Sef, Sap, Horford11- Neither (reserved for WOR)12 - Other?
