He still comes off the bench regularly.
A year from now, this probably changes though.

Isn't Javale McGee coming off the bench?

Didn't Carl say McGee will be a bench player?

The Thunder second unit would be:

Maynor
Harden/Cook
Sefalosha/Perry Jones
Perry Jones
Collison

They never go full bench and Ibaka/Collison/Perkins all rotate so effectively they are all bench players. Same thing with SF in which Durant/Sefalosha usually sub each other while Harden plays the 2.

Also, Perry Jones will be a huge contributor. He looks like Jeff Green 2.0

Nuggets are

Miller
Brewer
Chandler
Randolph
McGee

brewer wont get significant minutes though, Miller will get the majority of the backup 2 minutes with Jordan Hamilton and Chandler getting some burn there too

Koufos is the 3rd center not backup

He was but 2005 he was moved to the bench for Brent Barry. That's where he's been ever since. Every now and then Pop will switch it up like he did vs OKC but he is the 2nd unit.

To me its a close one between Nuggets and Spurs for #1 and Clippers as a slightly distant 3rd, dont see how clippers are winning outside of the OP having incorrect benches for nuggs and spurs
