Have the Pistons starting 5 been over used and over emphasized to the detriment of buidling a capable bench? Besides Dice it looks like there is zero trust in the bench. Sitting out starters when they are stinking up the joint doesn't even seem like an option. We sure could use some firepower and spark off the bench now. We may have the components but building a 2nd unit which operates fluently in key situations was never a regular season priority. The line was that with a starting 5 as good as the Pistons great bench play is not mandatory, every other team supposedly needs a bench because they depend on 1 or 2 stars. Well LBJ is taking the fight to us with an inferior supporting cast.
