    Bench Player Challenge

    Construct a 10 man rotation with legitimate bench players (not bench players who play with starter minutes). Use last seasons minutes per game and make sure your players DO NOT exceed 24 minutes per game. Consider team chemistry/needs/roles when filling your roster out (the most talented squad won't necessarily be the best squad in competition).

    Predict how many wins you would have in an NBA regular season. Compare and contrast with others. Have fun.

    ***New rule change!!!***

    1.) No Spurs players.
    2.) Majority of games must come off bench last season.

    Commonly used players that are not allowed to be listed:

    Vince Carter - 24.4 mpg last season
    Tony Allen - started 28 of 55 games (more than half)

    PG -- Greivas Vasquez | Nate Robinson
    SG -- Tim Hardaway Jr. | Anthony Morrow
    SF -- Draymond Green | Mike Miller
    PF -- Amare Stoudemire | Mason Plumlee
    C -- Omer Asik | Chris Kaman

    Amare gets to be the #1 option again. Asik protects him defensively. Vasquez will be the best passing PG he's had since Nash, sadly. Wings are mostly for spacing, Green can create some though. Nate is energizer off bench.

    I predict... 42-45 wins in the west, 50+ wins in the east.
    Three of your starters don't qualify as sub 24 minute guys.

    You can pick career minutes at or below 24 mpg or use last season's minutes. Should I change it so they have to be subs only?

    The career minutes thing defeats purpose

    In the rules I stated you can use starters but they have to have career minutes or last season minutes at or below 24. I think I will make them subs ONLY to make it more fair.
