wow, i'm really surprised there's a debate on the value of having depth. I kinda see the logic of people who are saying it's not that important but it's a new idea on me!
i love our depth and think it will serve us well.
as for teams with star players, they can't play the whole game!? If a team can just hang in there against them and their bench kills it that can win you the game. Last year's lakers suffered from a lack of depth imo.
