Wolves showed some nice depth to start the season, that is for sure. But long term, I love the Spurs and Nuggets depth.

Nuggets are very deep but I still think they need a go to scorer that can take over a game late.

As great as the Spurs depth is it stll could use some additions by subtraction. Mainly in the form of DeJuan Blair. Size is still at times a major issue for SAS. TimmyD cannot be on both posts at one time.

That isn't what depth is though. Denver is built for the regular season because of depth, style of play, and altitude at home. But in the playoffs, when rotations shorten, that is when the lack of a star kills them.

Never said I was mad nor did I make any inclination of being mad.

RonE Coleman is a Knick homer. He only made this thread so people would praise the Knicks. Is that really that hard to comprehend?

Clippers was the first team to come to mind, and Billups and Hill have yet to play. They are my dark horse to make it out of the West this year.

Spurs, Nuggets, Mavs, Wolves, and Knicks also are perty deep.

The Heat are a little sneaky deep. Same team as last year plus Allen and Lewis. They are still considered a 3 man team to some.

My top 5...

1. Spurs = Nuff said. They have everyone who is able to lead the team in scoring any given night.
2. Grizzles = Have you seen that team? They are stacked all over. They have a great starting unit, great bench players to keep the energy up, and great chemistry. I actually think they may be the best team in NBA right now.
3. Clippers = They have a great team. Haven't performed like it though, and they've still been great so far!
4. Knicks = They have a great group of guys who usually always comes out there to extend leads instead of giving it away
5. Dallas = Once they get healthy of course. Their team is stacked!

I don't know how deep Miami is seeing how they lack a truly good backup C and PF. Haslem hasn't been the same since he resigned. Rashard is good on offense but I fear his defense against other 4's.

You are twisting my words. I know they have great depth, I like what the Nuggets have done with that roster.

I am simply implying they still need a go to guy if they wanna beat the Lakers, Spurs, Clippers, Memphis, Etc. come playoff time.

Lol I could see replacing Dallas with the Clippers but replacing the Knicks with Miami is just dumb.

This is not about who is a better team but about who has a deeper roster.

JR Novak Prigioni Camby Sheed Shumpert and Possibly Amare when he comes back is a MUCH deeper bench then Miami's.

Obviously, is it hard to read?

A deep team can still miss one or 2 aspects to their roster can they not?

The Nuggets are extremely deep, they just are missing a closer.

I think technically the New Orleands Hornets are the deepest team. New Orleans is as much as ten feet below sea level at some points in the city.

Kills the heat bench IMO

AHAHAHA Who the **** are you? How am I a homer? I don't think we're better than Miami, OKC, Lakers, Spurs when it is all said and done but me thinking the Knicks will be the 2nd best team in the East suddenly makes me a homer? LMAO OK!

I also think the Spurs are the deepest team in the league. Does that make me a homer too? Dumb***

Celtics are not deep.. they have lots of youth and potential in the draft they just had, but not deep. Terry should start, but because he jacks 3s like JR Smith his role is better coming off the bench. Their bench does not impress me.

Clippers
Spurs
Knicks
Nuggets

Yeah cause one season is a good indication for that? In probabilty you might be correct, but there is not a way to tell the truth behind it.

Clipps, SA, Denver. Denver's top scorers besides iggy is 25 and younger. Denver beat Golden State and Gallo stepped up late in the game. Let the growth of players take its course.

Haha I know guess you're a Knicks fan but to LOL Miami being better than the Knicks on any level is just homerism. Depth includes the starters IMO. So it's like this.

Lebron>Melo
Wade>Chandler
Bosh>Stoudamire
Allen=Smith
Chalmers=Felton
Battier=Brewer
Haslem=Novak

After that the arrow probably shifts to the Knicks but just because your 8th man through reserves are better doesn't mean you have a deeper team. The question was not deepest bench.

Nets have one of the top starting 5s and a good bench of

CJ Watson
Marshon Brooks
Josh Childress
Reggie Evans
Andray Blatche

I think wolves deserve some consideration for the top 5. We just won a game with 10 players available to start the game and 9 to finish it. AK47 is our only healthy starter (pek got injured in the 3rd) and yet we still have a 5-2 record. When healthy (not for at least a month) this will be a very deep team.

PurpleJesus
11-13-2012, 12:18 AM
the Wolves are 5-2 despite missing several key players...they have 5 players injured that when put together would likely make the playoffs

Rubio
Roy
Chase Budinger
Love
Pekovic

then, they are missing JJ Barea as well.

Gone are the days when one could have an opinion and not get blasted for it. It's a persons opinion....who cares?
My opinion? Denver, Miami, New York, Clippers, and the Spurs. Miami would be considered deeper if sploestra trusted them more. Bulls last year were deep, this year...not as deep.

Clippers are deepest team by far IMO.

Say what you want about Chucker smith but he can carry the scoring load, Novak is also a solid scorer for a guy that comes off the bench.

Since when does Amare come off the bench?

Either way though the Clips, Nuggets, Spurs, and Knicks are all really deep.

I'm gonna give some love to the Nets as well their bench has won them a few games already.

I am not twisting your words. Depth is depth, it has nothing to do with a star player, it means that players 5-10 are stronger than other teams 5-10.

I am basing that off the model where only a team with stars wins around 95% of the championships. Star driven teams win in the NBA, period.

What i want to say about Earl "JR" Smith is that he causes havoc with his defense. He will commit a really dumb foul or 2 a game (1/2 the time its on an already contested 3) but he gets after it in NY and does not allow opposing teams to set up. JR might do some dumb **** but he contributes a lot in NY and not just by putting the ball in the hole
