  1. Hey, I mostly really like your podcast and kudos for that. But I have to admit that it is really annoying how you keep on wineing about coaches starting good players like Oladipo or Mo Williams starting from the bench. Look, as a basketball guy I suppose you know that the starting lineup does not always consist of the 5 best players on the team. Sometimes teams start good players from the bench because of matchup purposes or the reason that they don’t like their defense against the best players in the league (see Jamal Crawford and Isiah Thomas). Sometimes they feel that their bench does not have enough scoring, so they need a scorer to lead the second unit. Players like Crawford, Mo Williams etc are ideal for that. That way you can create a lot of good matchups for your team and get an edge over your opponents. It is not as black and white as your best 5 players start, and your next best 5 players come from the bench. It is just really disturbing to listen to that, as in all other ways you seem like a smart guy and certainly know your hoops.
    Wish you all the best for the future.

    • Hey man, I appreciate your comments. I have no issue with guys coming off the bench, my major issue is the best players not playing the most minutes or starting players and playing them 10 minutes. Because, if you start a dud and he plays 10 minutes then the rest of the time that guy you out to the bench to avoid playing with the starters, ends up playing with the starters majority of the time anyway.
