The NBA is considered by many to be a star-driven league, filled with tremendous talents and astounding athletes, but one would be hard-pressed to find a title contender or even a true quality team that doesn’t have some decent depth.

Because of the grueling nature of the NBA season, it is almost impossible to expect key players to hold up for all 82 games, and having players in the rotation that can contribute significant minutes and fill a specific role is integral in a team’s success.

Just look at the Chicago Bulls from 2010-2012, who thrived thanks to their depth even as their stars spent time in street clothes.

The quality of a bench is not just determined by the overall talent, but by how the squad plays together and the role that they fill while out on the court.
