A few days ago, Hoops Habit published a piece ranking the starting lineups of the NBA. But, we couldn’t give the starters all the credit and leave out the role players and benches of all 30 NBA teams!Team depth is an important factor for teams with championship aspirations. The ability to put forward a lineup that is always better than your opponent provides you with the edge to win. And how often have we seen teams throw away leads as soon as their second unit enters?
So, without further ado, allow me to present to you: the rankings of the benches of the NBA.
Note: All lineups were taken from ESPN’s NBA team depth chart. Where I have disagreed with ESPN’s projection, I have made known. But please remember that these lineups were obtained from ESPN, so don’t let at me if your favourite player isn’t starting!
