Who has the best bench in the NBL?
You can interpret "best" anyway you like.
Best outright, best against other benches, best compliment to the starting 5.
At the start of the season I would have said MU.
Now I'd be tossing up between Perth and NZ.
As a Unit, or 2nd 5, The combination of Cooke, Wagstaff, Hire, Steindl, and Kenny is impressive. They can play for extended minutes and almost hold their own.
Harder to see with NZ, but they still seem to get the job done, rotating effectively without losing much intensity.
