In a recent column, Matt Moore of CBSSports.com opined that the Thunder would be better off as a team if Enes Kanter was utilized as a starter, rather than coming off the bench as he has been. Moore acknowledged that Steven Adams has earned the right to start, but the defensive shortcomings of Kanter would be better masked playing alongside the team’s starters. The CBS scribe also opined that playing Kanter alongside Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant early in games could overwhelm opponents on the offensive end, while still allowing coach Billy Donovan to use Adams, who is an excellent defender, during crunch time.
Now it’s time for the question/topic of the day: Who should the Thunder start at center?
Do you agree with Moore’s assertion that beginning the game with Kanter on the court would improve the Thunder, provided Adams was utilized in the proper spots? Or do you think the team is fine as is, and Adams should remain the one who is jumping for the opening tip? Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on the subject.
