Coach Gregg Popovich
PG- Chris Paul/Mike Conley/Kemba Walker
SG- Jimmy Butler/CJ McCollum/Victor Oladipo
SF- Kawhi Leonard/Nicolas Batum
PF- Draymond Green/Gorgui Dieng
C- Hassan Whiteside/Joel Embiid

Balance, defense at every position, the best coach in the game today and one of the greatest of all time.

Good luck scoring.

PG - John Wall
SG - Bradley Beal
SF - Gordon Hayward
PF - Anthony Davis
C - Rudy Gobert

Bench
Backcourt
Danny Green
Eric Bledsoe
Eric Gordon

Frontcourt
Jabari Parker
Ben Simmons
Danilo Galinari
Marcin Gortat

Coach Scott Brooks (really )

I have elite defenders starting at the 1, 4, and 5, and plus defenders at the 2 & 3. You'd better have a lot of shooting in your starting lineup, because you won't get anything at the rim.

Wall and Hayward can both handle responsibility for initiating offense. Beal & Hayward provide spacing. Gobert & Davis both set good screens. Davis has a versatile offensive game, where Gobert's is more one-dimensional.

I'll spend plenty of time shifting AD to the Center position, and bringing in Bledsoe, Danny Green, Parker, Simmons, or Galinari to round out a small lineup.

Bledsoe, Gordon, and Simmons provide backup ball handling/offense initiation responsibilities. Bledsoe is also a big + defender from the PG position.

Gortat is ready to set screens, rebound, and defend. And play a physically imposing game.

Parker, Galinari, Danny Green, and Eric Gordon all provide good scoring and shooting off of the bench.

I want to pull up a poll before midnight EST so if Eddie, Ryu and Gladhands want to have their own rotation they should post before that time.
