Selecting the Phoenix Suns starting lineup... by committee

New, comments

Now it's your turn.

NBA: Miami Heat at Phoenix Suns Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, I and the Fantable gave you our opinions on who should start for the Suns if the season started tomorrow. We didn't agree on everything and from the comments left it was obvious that some people had ideas that differed from all of us. Since there is no way that we are all going to agree on everything, I thought it might be interesting to see what sort of lineup we would come up with if every fan actually had a vote on the selections, kind of like the fan voting for the All-Star teams.

So today we're going to try to find out.

Making decisions by committee isn't always the best idea but I have faith in the combined wisdom of Suns fans.

In the five following polls I'm asking you to vote for the players that you want as your starting lineup for the Suns. On Monday I'll post the results as part of the Center of the Suns article and, if there's enough interest, maybe we'll do it again to select the second unit players.

Some players will be in polls for two separate positions. Those players have either played both positions for the Suns in the past or have at least been mentioned as possibly playing at both positions.

Brandon Knight is not included in any of the polls because of the knee injury that will probably cause him to miss the entire 2017-18 season.
