Some topics for discussion on this grand Sunday:

(A) The Roster: At Long Last, We Have One

We've got fifteen players and a reasonable enough starting five. The current depth chart looks something like this:

Point Shooting Small Power Center
Jarrett Jack Eric Gordon Trevor Ariza Carl Landry Emeka Okafor
Greivis Vasquez Marco Belinelli Al-Farouq Aminu Jason Smith Chris Kaman
Squeaky Johnson Trey Johnson DaJuan Summers Gustavo Ayon
Lance Thomas

Not too shabby. Ayon and Thomas can be switched into that #3 center role as well, behind Kaman. Okafor's basically a lock to start at the 5 because of his defensive ability. Anyone you see moving around on this depth chart? Does the starting lineup change at all this year?

We've got

Thecommish2_medium and Landrytooth_medium

But what do we call the new guys?

General Greivis? Is there a Breaking Bad connection on the cards for Gustavo Ayon? And what of Al-Farouq Aminu? Surely his multi-syllabic nature must be corralled?
