Did the Bulls develop rookies while Jordan was there? Did they plan for the long range?? NO No one has developed a long term dynasty since the Celtics of Russell, and they lasted for a long time because he did. Same for Magic. Same for the Bad Boys. They only lasted until they got old or had salary problems. Who did Chuck Daly develop?? Unless your rookie is of very high caliber, they don't play much until someone gets HURT. Amir, Maxiel and the like, will develope in one of two ways: 1. Someone gets HURT and they have to play. 2. In the NBDL - that's what its for. As long as the Piston's five stay healthy - AND THAT'S A VERY BIG IF - then the rookies will not play much, nor should they. This trying to play games with the minutes is ridiculous. No coach is going to go through those machinations. He's paid to WIN. Match-ups, fouls, etc. determine who plays. Not some dreamed-up-in-the-shower rotation.
