Rotation Sensation!

Now that the preseason is officially over, I wanted to get a thread going on what starting lineups and rotations everyone thinks will be most effective this year. 

First, some background reading, with comments from Nellie regarding the starting lineup:

However, if history is any indication, Nelson's comments about starting lineups should be taken with a grain of salt. He is one of the most fickle coaches in the league (maybe of all time), and you can be guaranteed he will continue to tinker with the lineup all season. In 3 years as head coach of your Golden State Warriors he's used 35 (06-07), 23 (07-08), and 47 (08-09) DIFFERENT starting lineups. As a footnote, with 15 healthy players, there are actually
( 15! / ( 5! * (10 - 5)! ) ) = 3003 possible starting lineups, and you know Nellie will consider each and every one of them.

My vote for the most effective rotation is:

PG: Monta / Curry / Watson
SG: Jack / Morrow / Curry
SF:  Magette / Buike / Law
PF: Randolph / Turiaf
C:   Biedrins / Moore
PINE: George, Claxton

With a minor tweak against teams with big front lines, like Utah:

PG: Monta / Curry / Watson
SG: Jack / Morrow / Curry
SF:  Randolph/ Buike / Law
PF: Turiaf / Magette
C:   Biedrins / Moore

As usual, this year's Warriors team is guard-heavy and lacks size.  BWright would have given us a lot more depth at the 4.  I expect see Nelson trot out 3-PG lineups all year long: Monta + Curry + Law or Monta + Curry + Watson, until we get demolished on the boards.

As the great Tim Roye would say: It's going to be a Rotation Sensation!
