Ten NBA Lineups That Should Happen

July 4, 2013

I tried to limit this post to players that were active in the NBA or D-League last season.

One. The “Holiday, Celebrate” Lineup


Players: Dionte Christmas, Nerlens Noel, Jrue Holiday, Justin Holiday, Royal Ivey

Note(s): This lineup should play for the Bucks and wear red and green uniforms.

Two. The “Royalty” Lineup


Players: Earl Barron*, Earl Watson, Earl Clark, Marquis Daniels, Tayshaun Prince, Brandon Knight, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, selection of Duke players

* H/T @JazzBasketball1

Note(s): This team can either play for the Sacramento Kings or for the Detroit Pistons at the Palace; Royal Ivey is another candidate for this team.

Three. The “What A Tangled Web We Weave, When First We Practice (if no one ties his hair up)” Lineup


Players: Kenneth Faried, Jae Crowder, Chris Copeland, DeMarre Carroll

Note(s): Marquis Daniels is another candidate for this team…especially since he had that gold and diamond necklace of his head made.

Four. The “Medieval Professions and Pastimes” Lineup


Players: Derek Fisher, Andre Miller, Kyle Weaver, Caron Butler, Ronnie Brewer, Carlos Boozer, Kemba Walker

Note(s): 1) There are multiple Millers, Butlers, Brewers and Walkers in the league. I chose one to represent each family.
2) In case you were wondering, butlers did exist in medieval times according to Wikipedia.

Five. The “Yummy in My Tummy” Lineup


Players: Daequan Cook, OJ Mayo, Allen Crabbe, Stephen Curry, Doron Lamb, Glen Rice Jr., John Salmons

Note(s): Sadly, Von Wafer did not play in the NBA or D-League last season.

Six. The “Watery” Lineup


Players: MarShon Brooks, Austin Rivers, Brandon Rush, Willie Reed, Dwyane Wade

Note(s): Erick Dampier or TJ Ford can coach this team.

Seven. The “Flower Power” Lineup


Players: Derrick Rose, Hank Thorns, Gary Flowers, Landry Fields

Note(s): Cue Bret Michaels: “Eeeeeeeevery rose has its thorn…”

Eight. The “United Colors of the NBA” Lineup


Players: Aaron Gray, Michael Redd, Danny Green, Gerald Green, Jeff Green, James White, DJ White

Note(s): This lineup should play for the Nuggets, which should reinstate its rainbow jerseys from the 90s.

Nine. The “Players Everyone Naturally Associates with the Jazz and Pacers” aka the “We Are Really White” Lineup

so white

Players: Cole Aldrich, Luke Babbitt, Gordon Hayward, Tyler Hansbrough, Meyers Leonard, Miles Plumlee, Kyle Singler

Note(s): Sorry Chase Budinger, you are too white for this squad.

Ten. The “LOL! Gotcha! We’re NOT White! Hahaha!” Lineup

not white

Players: Avery Bradley, Jimmy Butler, Tyler Honeycutt, Jeff Pendergraph, Kevin Murphy, Kyle O’Quinn

Note(s): Does Dennis Schroeder belong on this team?

Bonus Lineup That Should NOT Happen: The “Bitches and Coach Killers” Lineup

coach killers

Players: Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Deron Williams

Note(s): Hey look, it’s the 2008 U.S. Olympic team!

    Haha! Funny read! I find it interesting that everyone from The “Holiday, Celebrate” Lineup has played or is going to play for Sixers! Also Russell Westbrook could be an ddition to “Watery lineup” and maybe it is more fit for John Salmons too. Then Willie Reed could be traded to “Flower Power” (his bloom is not that obvious though), to make it a complete starting five. The “What A Tangled Web We Weave, When First We Practice (if no one ties his hair up)” Lineup also needs one more member – like Michael Gelabale, freshly drafted Lucas Nogueira or/and Courtney Fortson.
