The Cook Is In...Time to Shake Things Up

Originally Published: Feb 16, 2011 9:5 AM CDT

The Thunder go into the All-Star Break on a high note. That was an impressive performance against Sacramento Tuesday. Seven players in double figures and a relatively quiet night from Kevin Durant in a run-away 30-point win.

With less than 30 games to go now, heres my proposal. OKC is good...in line for home court advantage in the 1st Round, but I think they may be able to take another step forward by shaking things up a bit. Im not proposing a trade...but a shuffle.

Id move Daequan Cook into the starting lineup. James Harden continues to be my two-guard off the bench...and Thabo sits. I think hes lost a step defensively, and Cook will have wide open shots all over the place playing alongside Westbrook and Durant. He will also make life easier for Russell and Kevin because defenders who have ignored Thabo on the offensive end will be reluctant to leave Daequan.

Time to shake up the starting lineup.
