The New York Knicks often found their starting five in flux during the 2011-12 season.
Between the ineffectiveness of Toney Douglas, the constantly ailing Baron Davis and the emergence of Jeremy Lin, not to mention injuries to Amar'e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, Iman Shumpert, Davis and Lin, the starting lineup saw a host of different faces.
After a flurry of offseason transactions made by GM Glen Grunwald, the Knicks are now a deeper, stronger team heading into 2012-13.
But the starting five will still see numerous changes over the 82-game season.
The Knicks brought in Ronnie Brewer, Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd and Marcus Camby. These players could easily start for most NBA teams, but they will be fighting for minutes in New York. Grunwald also re-signed two electric bench players in J.R. Smith and Steve Novak.
Over the course of the season, coach Mike Woodson will find himself with tough decisions to make about which of his talented players to start and how to split up the minutes. But that, as Marlo Stanfield would say, is one of them good problems.
