    There is a reason the starters are logging 35+ minutes per game, the bench is far from appetizing. Rush and Muhammad were two of the best off the pine and both are FAs.

    That and Thibs always plays his starters 40 minutes a game. He did the same thing in Chicago.

    True but people need to realize people do learn and adjust. I would say the Pop who coaches for the Spurs now is different from the Pop that won his first title all those years ago with Robinson and Duncan. I don't remember him resting his guys alot way back then like he does now.

    People get so caught up with how players and coaches are early on, and forget they people do change over time.

    The bench suck in Minnesota. It would be interesting what he does if they they ever add more depth.
