Its that dang bench! When they ball Jeff Green, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee could all conceivably be 6th in the man of the year discussion, yet the only one with real consistency this year is the tubby, undersized draft pick Jared Sullinger. As far as as match ups go I reckon the current roster was assembled with only Miami in mind (and if that bench shows up could still make life really hard for them).
