thin bench? meeks, jaimison, hill, blake
thats pretty good. it's not OKC, Miami, or denver deep but its pretty damn deep
I'd argue our bench is as good if not better than OKC or Miami. Think about it who does Miami or OKC have on their bench that can hurt you consistently? Miami has Ray Allen, Udonis Haslem, and Norris Cole. OKC has James Harden and Nick Collison. We have Jamison who can match Allen and Harden production wise and we also have guys like Meeks who is a very solid shooter and Hill who's a solid defender, rebounder, and hustle player. Not to mention we have the best starting unit in the league by a mile therefore we don't really need great bench production.
