    Hmmmm....his prime days in OKC were at C though. Can't see Nurse wanting both JV and Serge in the post. Serge and JV in separate line-up's?
    I think as danh has been harping, a lot of Serge at backup 5
    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

        What? He played almost entirely at PF in basically his whole career, including in OKC.

        Problem is now he doesn't move as well, and he was never a very high IQ player so he would rely on his athleticism to cover up mistakes. This makes it hard to play him at PF defensively for long stretches.

        Offensively, the post has always been a fairly small part of his game, and in general he's not a guy who creates. He needs to catch the ball in finishing situations. However, he still has the size and enough spring to simply get a shot over his man in the post a fair amount. In his peak years in OKC, he was being assisted on well over 70% of his 2pt FGs (lowest % was 74.1% in his best years). A physical decline could help explain that too, if he could more easily slash through the lane without needing to dribble before going up for a dunk/layup. Basically they could be looking to limit his "in-between" game by trying limit the times he has to catch/handle the ball from the perimeter. That's when he tends to get himself into the most trouble.

          I don't have any inside info, just a guess. I think we'll likely see a few different starting lineups during the preseason. Nurse strikes me as a tinkerer.
          The belief is Green will start, but Nurse will likely play with different starting lineups for pre-season, esp. between Green/Ibaka/Anunoby.

                  Kawhi Leonard is a Toronto Raptor. Still hasn’t sunk in. Maybe when I see him play tomorrow.
                  mfw I see Kawhi in the starting lineup graphic tomorrow night:

                    Might be a good 6th man
