Freeland or Leonard who will start?

By mbmurr1 Posted in: Blazers
Who do you think will be the starter this season and how many minutes will each get?
In my opinion Freeland will start and play about 25 minutes a game.
Leonard will come off the bench for 20 minutes.
Our other PF's will fill-in the rest of the game.
I think they both will have trouble with fouls at first but once Leonard figures out the pro game, his time will come and by the end of the year Leonard will be the starter.
Between the two of them I expect 18 points, 16 boards, 2 blocks, 3 assists averages over the season per game.
What are your thoughts on the center position this year?

  1. I think Hickson will coming from bench to the center position (to playing with LaMa on PF). LaMa will play about 36 minutes, Hickson 30-32 minutes. Easy math: 36+30= 66 >>> 96-66= 30. Thirty minutes for Leonard and Freeland. But maybe Portland will saving Aldridge and Hickson will maybe get fewer minutes.

    From Leonard and Freeland I'm expecting 14-16 pts, 13 reb, 2 blk, 3 ast.

  2. Freeland should start for now , but in closing minutes I expect LA playing at 5 as we did last season
