    Disclaimer: Just a question. Not even a theory. Just a question.

    I sometimes privately wondered whether some of the starting five were giving the coaches (Brown & Flip) a hard time when a bench player cut into their minutes. Like, Sheed & Billups were saying stuff like "Darko ain't no punk", yet Ben had nothing to say about it. Maybe Ben thought he was a punk or maybe he just doesn't say much anyhow.

    Then, you know, Dice didn't want to come in that one day.

    I'm not trying to single out Ben. None of our bench players play much.

    I dunno. Maybe it's like that with every team or maybe it wasn't an issue. :noidea: Any thoughts?

    The coaches are probably in love with our starters more than the players not wanting the bench to play, but it could be a possibility.
