Can we talk starting lineup for a minute please?

[DISCLAIMER: I posted this as a comment in a recent post but I want to see what you all think about it in a real post rather than spamming that comment board]

I have every faith in Adelman and I know he has his reasons for keeping the same starting 5 for every game so far, but I think it’s really hurting us. I’ve been thinking this for a while and tonight validated my thought. When the starters let us fall into an 18-3 hole to start, we were left to play catch-up all game.

18-3 hole. That is abysmal.

I think we have kick Darko and Wes Johnson from the starting 5. I know we don’t really have another giant to replace Darko, but DWill can play his position just as well at the rate Darko’s been going. In addition, I like Beasley but someone needs to teach him not to shoot every time he touches the ball (at least to start a game). He’s streaky, and rarely can he hit consistently to start a game off.

We need our rookies in to start. There, I said it. They have been crazy productive and their electricity makes everyone else play better.

What do you all think?
