That starting 5 was great, but the bench players aren't good at all. Guess it shows how important depth is when building a team. Doc found that out with the Clips last year as did LeBron with the Cavs. While the Celtics have no stars (yet) I love their depth.

Yes, the weaker you are the more interchangeable your roster becomes.

The better the starting five, the worse the bench by comparison.

1986 and 2008 being exceptions.

I guess a lot of that has to do with the cost of signing 2 or 3 stars for starters then there's not left for the bench unless you get guys willing to sign for less for a chance to win a title like David West did in San Antonio this season.
