Every year the challenge in setting basketball teams is distributing talent, balancing ball-handling and boxing out skills, and finding the right chemistry. This year, with two rookies, one third of the championship team missing, and the undisputed 2013 MVP out for the race, we’ve got with the following:
Team 1, HickoryBuckeyes: JP, Graf, Doyle – RETURNING CHAMPIONS
Team 2, Coaches: Shimp, Patrick, Ball – if we can coach, we can play
Team 3, The C Roy All-Stars: Roy, Lovell, Steve Schooey — every player plays better with Chris Roy
Team 4, The E Street Band: Gus, Marshall, Gary – not because they’ll play for 4 hours
Team 5, Moose Droppings: Otto, C. Heffernan, Gundrum – mad skillz & camelbacks…and, yes, that puts Otto in the PG role
And Amit: super-sub in the event – really, the inevitability – that someone can’t make it to the triathlon finish line.
