Good lord. Emoni at center is one of the most ridiculous suggestions I have seen in quite some time. It points to a serious lack of basketball understanding, I think we just need to put that idea to bed and quickly move on.

I am totally siding with Super on this one. The idea is for Emoni to play center defensively. He has height, leaping ability, and enough quickness to time a block on a shot when the player is coming towards his position. Why is it such a bad idea? Not trying to argue with anyone, just curious why this is so shocking?

Super, I am going to borrow the coffee in support of your idea! 07-coffee3

I think in spurts you can play him as a center, but the biggest disadvantage have nothing to do with height or quickness - - he's not strong enough and he's not even 200 lbs. It'd be asking a lot from Emoni to have him trying to defend a big that will back him down and go to work. And his offensive efficiency is bound to drop if he's got to put in extra work defensively guarding a team's big.

Now, I still think there are variations of the lineup that would work well offensively while giving up any advantages that playing Geeter/Randle/Gholson down low defensively might provide. I just don't think you can play it for very long stretches of time. Sort of like how the Warriors go to their "small ball" lineup with Draymond. A change-of-pace type move as opposed to the regular.

That is my point, even if his man wants to back him down that is a long process and you can scheme a double team with the forwards (reallize thus might cause other problems too). But what Emoni brings is quickness and length to contest/divert/slow down the quick penetration Drives that no one seems to be stopping. Maybe this causes other problems, but seems the best solution. But I really don’t know what I am talking about.
