Basketball is one of the sports which requires a certain number of players. Unfortunately, you cannot let all the players into the game all at the same time as only five are allowed on-court. These first five players are usually the most talented ones in the team and when they ran out of gas, a coach can bring in his second or third unit. At times, the second, or third, unit of the team can be given ample amount of playing time if they are playing more effectively than the first unit.
However, if the first unit has been playing so well, the chance of bringing in players other than this unit is low. Those who are not given the chance to play are said to be bench players. From the word bench itself, it implies that these players have longer time of sitting on the bench rather than playing. People think that bench players are not good enough. Is this true? Well, if you are a bench player, do not succumb to this idea.
