    To me, Forbes comes off the bench. Start White and Dejounte together.

    Easy.

    Pop: Derrick, I need you to come off the bench like Manu did.

    He can either take it like a man and thrive or he can be a like Stephen Jackson and quit on the team.

    That said, Forbes should not start under any circumstance with a healthy team and so I'd rather he start as our SG along with Murray at the one even though it would be better to have an actual SG start instead. I'd love that guy to be Lonnie but I'm not sure he's ready yet.

    Does White have the scoring mentality to play in the second unit as the primary ball handler? He isn't an assertive player and kinda just picks his spots.

    But then I am not a great fan of having Mills/Forbes/Beli as my second unit. That a defensive nightmare there.

    I think most likely it’ll be

    dejounte/White
    bryn/patty
    demar/Lonnie
    carrol/Rudy
    LA/Jakob

    with guys like Trey lyles, belly, the rookies, metu playing end of the bench roles

    Watch Derrick White demand a trade and Spurs have no good perimeter defense anymore after he's gone. That's funny because something similar happened 2 years ago....

    Meant more for long term happiness and not having contant turmoil and debate. Starting used to mean quite a bit in contract negotiations and endorsement opertunities.

    Long term happiness and not having constant turmoil?

    Pop: Well, Derrick... that's why there's a team in Canada.

    I can almost guarantee Murray and White are not starting together. One is going to have to lead the second unit, and if I learned anything the Spurs like to have a stronger second unit than the completion.
    Murray/White
    Forbes/Mills
    Demarr/Walker
    Gay/Carroll
    Aldridge/Jakob

    I agree. Both can score and it is better to start off the tone of the game with defense then watch Forbes get lit up and see the Spurs down by 20. There will be plenty of times where Forbes can be brought in based off of matchups.

    Agreed. Especially to start the year out. See how they do together first.

    We don't know at this point who would actually be better coming off the bench as 6th man. I believe the best way to finesse this situation is to have Manu come in as a consultant who can meet with whoever it is and give him the perspective of a world class player who came off the bench for his whole career to help the team win championships. Young guys want to start, but we have a logjam at guard. I'd rather see Forbes coming off the bench, but that is just my belief that you put the two best defensive players with some offensive chops on the court at the same time.

    Then you have Walker 4 who has to go somewhere. What a curious position to be in this year.

    Even if Dejounte isn't as capable a scorer as Whitey, I take the above average defense from the two as you say to start the game. Forbes can come on to eat up minutes and get a bucket immediately if necessary

    I also believe it would be easier for White to handle ego wise.

    The crazy thing is that this is only a question because we can’t play Bryn and Patty on the floor at the same time. The solution is to get rid of one of them and then White can start and have his minutes staggered with DJ but that’s not gonna happen.

    Long term happiness? White will be on the trading block soon. There's no long term happiness in the NBA anymore, not with one team. It comes from contracts now.

    Both Mills and Forbes need to be on the floor with a point guard - not each other.

    When can I start the "how to convince DeMar DeroZan to be the sixth man" yet? We're headed to that topic soon, but don't want to jump the gun.

    If Pop puts White & Murray together in the preseason and it works spectacularly, why wouldn't he go for that option?
    They've spent very few actual minutes together in real game situations... seems like that would be the first experiment to look at before sending either to the bench.
