    Well, like I said: it presented a moral issue for him. The whole world was collapsing, and the last sliver of right was a reciprocal relationship. It always comes down to (more tacit than not) respectful boundaries. Once that is breeched, it's strawberry fields all-the-way-down.

    Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
    Nothing is real and there's nothing to get hung up on.

    NBA Starter/Bench stats

    This is a good study. It just breaks out the difference between each teams starters and bench.

    Our bench gets the 20th most playing time of any bench in the league. But notice that our bench gets the 2nd most blocks in the league in those limited minutes (thanks to Amir).

    The mins for most bench teams is inflated I think because hardly any team has a starter that can be depended on 30 min games. You look at alot of box scores and see one starter getting 15 mins a game sorta like our Budda from the badboys.

    I think we must be close to leading the league though in fewest mins for our leading time getter... aka our leader in mins per game is Rip and he is roughly mid 50's in mpg, compared to having 3 starters last year in the 30's in ranking.

    Our bench minutes are also inflated because of all the blow-outs.

    I think the more interesting thing is that the table allows us to make some comparisons between our bench's production per minute vs. other teams' benches.

    We have the 4th best +/- bench in the league. That is a good measure of production, both in real and garbage time.

    Shouldn't our bench be like 10th most minutes [or top 6]? I bet the diff between 20th and 15th is 1 minute total.

    WoW, then 15th to 10th is 11. Must be teams like the Knicks where there's no apprecial diff between starter and bench.

    Look at Indiana last night. 31 points by their starters. That is sad.

    You're right, on some teams, what's the difference?
