    This wasn't even the deepest Rockets team. For starters, the 08-09 team was deeper, barring the classic Rockets injuries. The second Championship team was arguably deeper than last year's team come playoff time.

    The bench guys that we thought would have big minutes all got hurt: Luc, Ryno, Nene, leaving us with just eric gordon and gerald green off the bench.

    in the season nene was already known unplayable

    in the season ryno was already known to be useless

    luc got hurt way back before the playoffs morey prolly had time plent of time to find a back up/insurance

    cp3 having no backup or insurance and having a 3 guard rotation is inexcuseable

    Not too many people would specify Dantley on that Pistons team.

    Our players ran out of steam because we were running a 6 man rotation

    I think the question was for last season. Last season warriors were not deep. Strong starting 5 though.

    Spoken like a real bballholic protege. Morey injured Moute and Ryno? Morey set the rotation?

    morey had 20M on Ryno who he tried his best to trade in the beginning of the year and was useless all year

    that left us with Tucker and Capela as our front court. that's on morey.

    were you perfectly fine with a 3 guard rotation knowing cp3 and ego are injury prone? thats on morey too

    and when was Luc's first shoulder injury?

    Can't be that deep if MDA doesn't even trust nearly half his roster to play important minutes...
