Default Bench Problems

What a difference a year makes. From one of the better and deeper benches in the league to no bench whatsoever. With Bargs in the starting lineup (love him or hate him) our bench production has come down to an absolute minimum.

The cupboard is dry and for once in his tenure I kind of feel sorry for Mitchell. The bright side is the Raptors have great assets in high demand spots (ie the bigs and PG) but our depth is a major problem.

I never liked the guys game and thought he was way too inconsistent for his skill set but I believe the Raptors really miss Delfino. Screw you BC Khimki for throwing him a boat load of money we could at least have an ounce of depth of this team

It's horrible that Sam can't give his starters a 4-5 minute rest at the start of the 4th without blowing a 10+ point lead.I bet that he crosses his fingers everytime he puts out Will,Hump,Moon,Kapono with or without a lead.No lead is safe with the 08-09 Raptors.

Right now its looking really really bad. Its sad to say but Humphries is looking like the best bench player this team has. A player that was once traded for Hoffa for christ sakes.

Like really if you put the bench of the floor (Hump, Moon, Kapono, Soloman, Adams, Ukic) even with 6 of them you still wouldn't compete with a bottom feeder

THere is one bright side. IF the make the playoffs (barring injuries they should) having the bigs they now have they should give their opponent a much better fight.

Playoffs is all about half court sets and a limited bench ... well Mitchell disproves that theory but this year he'll have no choice

Back in the old days teams didn't even have a bench. Players used to stand around when they weren't on the court. Some would even serve refreshments.

I blame the Democrats.
