Allocation of Minutes: The Great Debate

With training camp under way, it's exciting to think of the battles these guys are having with each other to gain minutes in the rotation. With all the talent we have on this roster, it can be difficult to accurately predict how many minutes each player gets on the floor, or even who makes it out of camp. For the sake of debate, I decided to propose my idea of what the team's rotation would look like.

Here's how I think the minutes could stack up when the season starts:

Position:- player name (minutes at that position):::::::{situational}

 

PG:- Tony (34), George (14)::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::{Temple, Neal, Jerrells}

SG:- Manu (28), George (10), Neal (8), Anderson (2):::::::::::::{Temple}

SF:- RJ (28), Anderson (13), Simmons (7):::::::::::::::::::::::::::{Manu, Gee}

PF:- Timmy (25), Blair (20), RJ (2), Simmons (1)::::::::::::::::::{Gist}

C:- Tiago (24), Dice (14), Bonner (7) Tim (3):::::::::::::::::::::::::{???} 

 

I think this allows for rest of the veterans and gives the young guys enough time on the court to be effective. And for all those small ball haters, there's only 3 minutes of scheduled small ball listed. The situational players can be defined as any player who could play that position if the situation calls for it. (injury, blowout, cold streak etc.) Of course this is not a definite thing as players minutes can fluctuate as the play better or worse. This is just what I had in mind.

As always, you are welcome encouraged to disagree and make changes where you see fit. Debates are fun and the reason I wrote this post, so if you see something you don't like, change it. Either way I think we can agree that this is a talented group of players we have. 

Go Spurs Go!
