There a lot of different

There a lot of different things you can do with this team but id agreewith this one. Have iggy as a sixth man for the 2 and 3. have lee coming in at 5 of the bench or 4 and put Bron at the three. But lots of these guys havent played a single nba game so I dunno man.

I am going with a BIG starting lineup with LeBron at the point forward with Mike Conley as the main scorer in the backcourt. LBJ and Iggy on the wing will shut down everyone. Drummond can block shots inside while David Lee can score and rebound.

This starting lineup gives them the most size and experience.

Then, off the bench I am going with youth, speed, and quickness. Mario can run the second unit featuring three great young wings in Wiggins, Parker, and McLemore. Not sure if Parker can play the stretch four, if not then move Wiggins to the backup 2 spot with Parker at the 3.

Steve Novak is my shooting specialist off the bench at either forward spot.

My small ball lineup would be Conley and Wiggins in the backcourt with Parker and LeBron at the two forward spots with Andre Drummond inside at center manning the paint.

I thought about bringing Iggy off the bench for veteran leadership, but I am not sure that I would play Wiggins at the 2. Then you would still have three wing players in the second unit, with Iggy basically being the stretch four off the bench.

Another thing you could do would be to start Novak as a floor-spreading stretch four with LeBron at the 3 and David Lee at the 5. Then you could go big off the bench with Len and Drummond as twin towers off the bench, Mario Chalmers at point guard, and some combination of Wiggins, McLemore, Parker, and Hairston on the wing.

I know it would be weird having Lebron off the bench, but I value my 6th Man and bench scoring. What better way to deal with both problems? Wiggins has all the tools to be a defensive beast so I'm hoping he's even half of that coming into the league. If that's a case, then Conley/Iggy/Wiggins should give me a very good defensive trio to lock up the wings. Novak would be the match-up to go after, but he should be able to hold his own and Lee would give him the help that he needs. On offense, we have three capable ball-handlers, two above average 3P shooters, two slashers and a low-post threat.

My 2nd Unit would have Lebron and Chalmers in the roles that they play now in Miami. A Lebron/Drummond PnR is scary (for my opponents anyway) and would be where the main offense comes from for the unit. McLemore and Chalmers would provide great outside shooting while Parker can take over the ball-handling duties to create his own offense/allow Lebron to play off the ball on a few trips down. And on defense, we have good-to-great-to-awesome defenders at each position (or at least they are projected to be).

Then if the game were close I'd roll out:
PG-Mike Conley
SG-Andre Iguodala
SF-Andrew Wiggins
PF-Lebron James
C-Andre Drummond

^I don't care how much you

^I don't care how much you value a good 6th man, the line HAS to stop somewhere short of starting Steve Novak over Lebron. Lebron can't come off the bench because he should be playing practically the whole GAME! You're gonna have to rest him at some point, so I don't understand why you would add the minutes of him on the bench to the minutes of him resting.
