No waiting until Christmas this year.
Instead of waiting for Santa to ring in the new NBA season this year, we can tip off with Trick-Or-Treaters as usual.
Practices and preseason games are underway, which has shored up a few questions for teams as to who is going to be on the starting unit and who will be coming off the bench.
Using these so-called "up to date" depth charts provided by the teams, I have complied a list of who each teams most important reserve is this season.
This may not always be the "best" player coming off the bench, although it often is, but more the most important player to the team's success with their second unit.
Argue and enjoy.
