    They should just play a young team like this

    1. Russell. Young. Fox
    2. Booker. LaVine. Harris
    3. Middleton. Tatum. Ingram
    4. Gordan. J Collins Randel
    5. Drummond. Turner. Allen

    If people pull out you still have a huge group of players to chose from that are still young like Montrez Harrell, Kyle Kuzma, DeJonte Murray, Jaylen Brown, Justice Winslow, Larry Nance Jr, Malcom Brogdan, Lonzo Ball, Denis Smith Jr, Marvin Bagley Jr, Jaren Jackson Jr and Josh Richardson.
