Intriguing nonetheless

Alright, now that there's some time for that to sink in, what do you think. My first few thoughts at that proposal:

1. It's Bleacher Report

2. Chemistry would be ruined

3. Lots of volatile personalities on the same team

4. Athleticism is insane.

This is an intriguing scenario nonetheless as a front court of Iguodala, Josh Smith, and Javale McGee would instantly become the most athletic in the league. Kenneth Faried would probably come off the bench, which is a role I would be interested to see him in.

There's also JJ Redick, who would bring the added 3 pt shooting, in exchange for less defense. My only qualm with this is when we come to face the Thunder. Who would guard WestBrick? As much as I wanna say he would accidentally run into a wall on the way to the court and be out for that playoff series, it probably wouldn't happen and we would still be forced to guard him.

There's also the crunch time lineup which would be interesting.

Lawson, Miller, Brewer, Iggy, Smith?

Lawson/Miller, Redick, Iggy, Smith, Faried/McGee?

I'm not sure I like any of those combinations at the end of the game unless Iggy can prove to hit those shots with some consistency. Honestly, I don't want Gallinari to be traded as I think he is key to our success. But maybe we trade offense for defense as many of us forget how great a defender Smoove is. I wouldn't do this, as I doubt he re ups with us, but the thought is good.
