Game is at 7:30 on ComcastSportsNet.
Already the speculation has begun as to who will be in the starting lineup tonight and at the start of the season. I thought it'd be what the preseason started as: Hinrich/Gordon/Deng/Brown/Wallace. Maybe this is just idle speculation:
I think Noc is best as a sixth man, as the Bulls would need a scorer in the frontcourt if the other two guys are a combination of Thomas/Khrapa/Brown/Sweetney, etc. Especially if you were worried about bench scoring in the first place, as the article continues:
Noc has is faults, but I think he'd be a great 'offensive-minded replacement'. Especially better than Pike or Pargo. Season hasn't even started that and the nostalgia of cast-offs has already begun.
And lets hope this is completely baseless stuff from KC Johnson (btw, welcome back to the beat KC! We missed ya last season. [I mean that]):
That leaves current starters P.J. Brown and Ben Gordon as candidates to come off the bench, most likely Gordon.
Who exactly is going to start at the two then, Thabo? Griffin....... the return of the Duhon-Hinrich starting backcourt. (::shudder::)
Really now, why have Ben as your off-the bench gunner if you can have Noc fill that role, which can also alleviate the small forward 'problem'.
