You ever notice how I'm not Andy Roony?...er. let's try that again
When you're planning a Society Event, questions of who sits at what table arise. Some people just don't get along, so you don't want to seat them together - even when you want them at the party.
On a basketball team, you don't always have a choice about who come to the party, so here's a quick little playing guide based on cumulative 2-player +/- per minute stats. While there are no guarantees that the party will be a success, you'll certainly have more fun - and probably better results - if you follow these handy do's and don'ts for your Big rotations.
|+/- per Min||
|+/- per Min|
|D. Lee||V. Radmanovic||-0.111||D. Lee||J. Adrien||3.750|
|45:00:00||D. Gadzuric||-0.277||27:45:00||B. Wright||0.408|
|A. Biedrins||B. Wright||-0.230||A. Biedrins||J. Adrien||0.628|
|36:32:00||C. Bell||-0.642||29:59:00||J. Lin||0.048|
|J. Adrien||D. Gadzuric||-2.019||J. Adrien||V. Radmanovic||0.394|
|J. Adrien||D. Wright||-0.200||J. Adrien||R. Carney||0.504|
|B. Wright||V. Radmanovic||-0.168||B. Wright||D. Lee||0.408|
|29:32:00||D. Gadzuric||-0.854||30:55:00||J. Adrien||0.504|
Under each name we have the combined minutes for those player combinations. and what you'll also see is there are pleny of non- or one-starter combinations that can work with the same players, if you give those combinations the minutes and think about them. As you can see, everyone can be productive - even Vladi - when put into the right circumstances.
A couple of points: this is very incomplete in terms of rotations and lineups, but it should indicate a direction to look. I have a hunch that Dre and Brandan have issues on the court because they're both relatively low-motor players, and need to be next to high-motor players who make good choices, like Lee and Adrien. If they're next to high-motor players who make bad choices, things fall apart very fast.
