Today Gordie Chiesa was on 1280 the zone to talk about the Jazz and the Olympics. He went through and talked about what each new addition will bring to the team and then he was asked who he thought should start this year for the Jazz with the current roster. His reply was:
I was a little shocked that he put Randy Foye in the starting line up and left Marvin Williams out. He said that he thinks Foye will play better as a starter and that Burks should be a Jason Terry, James Harden, Manu Ginobli type of scorer off the bench this year for the Jazz as back up SG. Also, if you look at Foye’s numbers last year he played his best in the stretch at the end of the year when he was starting for the Clips. I actually like this idea but I wonder how Marvin Williams would do coming off the bench. Ever since we got him, I just envisioned him as a starter. He has started for the majority of his career (379 starts out of 487 games played). Of course that doesn’t mean he automatically should start, but shows he is a starting caliber player. However, we would have an awesome bench with Burks, Marvin, Millsap, Kanter, and either Watson or Tinsley. Anyway, what do you guys think of Gordie’s line up? I think it’s interesting.
