Boston, LA, Orlando are the first that come to mind. Miami actually ended up pretty damn decent if you ask me

Best bench in the NBA? The Dallas Mavs for sure. Most players who have played there agree that the benches, which Cuban had ergonomically designed for the players, are easily the most comfortable benches in the NBA, they are cushioned and adjustable and better for the players backs and posture which reduces the potential for strained backs and such whilst waiting to get the call to play. Not even a contest.

I think Asik will be 2nd tier center who will get bunch of time
He is a beast btw

I think the vet will start the year ahead of Omer on the depth chart, but let's not forget that Thomas could also get some minutes at the 4. As for him being a beast, he's not there ... yet. He'll show flashes this year but he'll need some time to adjust to the NBA and to bulk up (he had never lifted weights before coming here).

I think if you can overlook the glut of guards on Orlando's bench, they are the best group next to perhaps Dallas.

I think he/she (I don't want to assume) is implying that, for the Heat, after the first half, it won't matter who is on the bench because the game will be out of reach (blowout).

unacceptable

The Kings actually have a ton of depth at the big man spots:

Carl Landry and Sam Dalembert figure to be the starters heading into the season but obviously things can change. They have:

Carl Landry
Sam Dalembert
Jason Thompson
DeMarcus Cousins
Hassan Whiteside

08-14-2010, 12:47 PM
if celtics get another wing (someone like delonte west) i think they have the best bench

You guys have 2 starters that are from the island of Haiti/Dominican... Nuff said. You guys would be better off starting a baseball team with this squad. Not to mention your starting SF is named Omri Casspi from Israel. The Kings blow and that bench is horrific.

That's not their bench, that's their big guys. And if you can bring Jason Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins off of the bench then you have some nice big guys.

Stop being a homer this is almost the equivalent to me posting the Warriors bench here and I would never do that. Sure the Warriors can bring in an unproven young, but talented big man off the bench too in Brandan Wright, but it doesn't make my team suck any less just like DMC doesn't make your horrific team much better.

I never said we had a good bench, I said we had good big man depth. We don't have good guard depth at all. And that's just the truth. And I'm pretty sure people think a lot more highly of DeMarcus Cousins than Brandan Wright.

Yea I like DMC a whole lot better than I like Wright, I was just being a dick. Yea I guess the big man depth is cool but our teams still suck lol... damn California basketball outside of Laker land

What?
