The starting five is ultimately the most important, but a team’s depth is extremely important. Which contender has the biggest advantage in this department?

Gonna be biased here but… Houston.
Hayes, Budinger, Lee, Lowry. Miller, Dampier.
Last year, 3 of those guys were starters for other teams.
Hayes started at the 5 for Yao.
Again, I know I’m really biased but.. they should be in the conversation.
Gotta be Boston or LA. I think Odom kinda makes LA’s bench seem the best, but when you think about the Boston bench overrall it’s kinda tough to say.
Redick, Bass, Gortat, Pietrus, Jwill. That lineup could still beat Toronto’s starters.
Houston by a lot in my opinion, except for maybe Orlando. Orlando has a nice bench too.
why is the spurs on this list? there is just george hill as a descent player.
Boston by quite a bit. Shaqtus, JO, Nate, Delonte, Uno Uno, and Marquis Daniels (underrated IMO). Deepest team in the league. Lol’d @ Houston.
Blake, Brown, Barnes, Walton and Theo would beat any of the other benches even the overrated Boston bench. Nate is a cast off, JO and Shaq will get old by 30 game this season, West is a head case and Daniels can’t shoot, but plays tough D. Lakers win in Bench series 4-2. BOOK IT!!
Houston? Maybe they should play their bench all game and finally win one.
