Josh Bagriansky down at Score Atlanta has a chat with both Marynell Meadors and with Angel McCoughtry about the upcoming 2009 Atlanta Dream season.
Meadors gives away some info as to how she sees the starting five:
Meadors is also looking to put all of her options to good use, and gave a bit of insight as to how the lineup will look on opening day.
“I’m not sure who’s going to start at 2,” she said, “But I’d have to save Izzy Castro-Marques will start there. And we’ve got Tamera Young and Ivory [Latta]. The 2 and 3 are really interchangeable in our offense. And when Nikki needs a break Ivory will run the point.”
We furthermore know that if Chamique Holdsclaw is played anywhere, it will be at small forward, according to Meadors.
So who will fill the power forward and center spots? Angel McCoughtry is not a power forward. Erika de Souza is sort of a slide between a power forward and a center. My guess is that since we went out of our way to acquire Michelle Snow, and Snow is a true center, this is what our starting five will look like:
So this is how it looks:
PG: Nikki Teasley
SG: Iziane Castro Marques
SF: Chamique Holdsclaw
PF: Sancho Lyttle
C: Michelle Snow
I think we can compete with this five. That is, if Nikki's knees don't give out and Iziane doesn't become her streaky self and if the depression doesn't grab Chamique and....
