If we're going to start the convo on next season we should just go ahead and start with the lienup. We have a pleathora of option at multiple positions and that creates many different possible looks for this squad.
How do you see the depth chart shaping up
Here's my guess
PG - Sosa (C) - Siva
SG - Jerry (C) - Preston - Marra
SF - Delk - Swopshire - Kuric
PF - Samardo - Buckles
C - Jennings - Goode - Van Treese
Siva is an absolute stud (360 layup?) and will be the true engine for this machine eventually. I see his season arcing like Kemba Walker's this year - solid early spectacular late. He's the pass first PG with dazzling skills and control of the game that we need. After watching the McD game tonight he really is the only of his kind in his class. If he has any kind of outside shot or midrange game there is no way Pitino will be able to keep him off the court
I also think that Buckles is the true X-factor for this team. He's going to have to be our junkyard dog if we're going to survive the BEast next year.
Finally I think the season comes down to whether Samardo can make "the jump" next year. Can he hit the 12 footer consistently. Can he learn a second (or even a third) post move. Can he become a better passer from the high post. Can we count on him for a hoop in crunch time. TJ also has a chance to to the same and may even be a faster learner than Samardo.
