Chicago has it, Miami might have some of it.
Nothing makes owners look bad than justifying their spendings. Example: Miami big gun Pat Riley calling Mike Miller the quintessential multi-facted player in the NBA.
That is not a quote, but it is the essence of what Riley said. Barf.
In 33-plus minutes a game, Mike Miller scorched the court for 11 points, six rebounds, and four assists a game. In Miller's defense, he shot 40 percent from the arc.
New Bull Kyle Korver had 7/2/2, shooting almost 54 percent in 15 less minutes a game.
Do not forget new additions Magloire, Joel Anthony, Big Z, and James Jones. Ilgauskas led this trio in points (7) and rebounds (5.5). Miller led in assists. That is great depth if your team wins 15 games a season. Remember, one of them has to start.
Second year F/C Taj Gibson of Chicago averaged nine points, 7.5 rebounds, and 0.9 assists. If Big Z starts, our bench has better statistics. If any of those three "depth" guys for Miami starts, our sophomore forward has better splits minus assists.
The Chicago Bulls, with as many bench guys signed as Miami, is already the best. Do not expect that to change much during the season.
News just came too that Chicago acquired guard C.J. Watson in a sign-and-trade with the Golden State Warriors. Depth is in check on the west side.
