Putting Solomon on with Kapono, Moon, and Humps... that'll just lead to a bad day and force you to play your big members 43 minutes+. Mix in Kapono, Moon, and Hump's minutes with at least 2 members of the big 4 at different times. Taking out Bosh for 12 minutes is sustainable IF during those 12 minutes our lineup has Calderon, Parker, Bargs, and JO in it. Then the rest is sustainable as long a Bosh and one of the others is on. Seriously like kindergarton stuff Sam... come on.
It's not as elementary as you claim. You have to have your starters out together for significant minutes to compete in this league..and you have to rest your starters...especially after a back to back against a tough opponent. There's a reason you're not an nba coach or a kindergarten teacher for that matter...it's harder than it looks
