If we put Butler in for 5 minute in the first half, can we stay competitive? And if we do stay competitive, why not give him 5 more minutes in the second half. Or at least have that option.
It just gives Frank more options if he's playing a deeper bench during the regular season. As it is, if he wants to change things up he has to bring in a cold player off the bench. And he's shown that he's not willing to do that. We just sort of keep floundering when things aren't going well because Frank is playing such a short rotation.
If this were the playoffs then I'd have no problem with the rotations. But it's the loooong regular season, so we need a deeper rotation. 9 players isn't enough. Yeah, we can win a lot of games, but what if it catches up to us?
People are saying we just need the all star break to rest everyone up. What if we don't get a rest period during the playoffs? The coach needs to manage the roster so that the players don't get worn out (physically or mentally) in the first place.
