Maybe they can have an impact like Reggie did in a bench capacity. You won't know if you don't try.
Like I said, I agree with you man and maybe that's a part of his incompetence, his stubbornness. He probably should give them a try. Hell it's either now or never for them. I was just giving you his possible motives for why he sticks with his rotations and up until now, we couldn't really say it was an issue because it was working. When's the last time they lost in the postseason when when they weren't supposed to?
His bad rotations / Lineups are something that I agree with, they at times are bad but there hasn't been any traction with it because it's working but now, if they get ousted in the first round, this could be the primary culprit (even though I think it has more to do with Russell and KD's play / Tony Allen's impact on the game than rotations)
