When you don't play your best players together all you are doing as a coach is trying to set up hope for improvement or excuses for failures and not going all out to win (the g karl method of coaching where continuing to coach is more important that trying to be the best team possible) why would a coach do that? Because if you put your best team on the floor and don't win than you have noone to blame but the coach
