As I heard Terry Boers mention on the radio when I was in the car a few minutes ago, it seems far more reasonable to assume that the message was being sent to Robinson, Bellinelli and company. In theory, the bench responded, though last nights game was the first game I've missed this year.... looked like the bench did well.

Supposedly he did send the message to GarPax this offseason. If I recall, the reporting was he was asked who on the bench mob was indispensable, and he replied "everyone."

I agree, if a message was being sent, it was to the bench, not management. Produce, or you won't get any burn.

5. Reggie Evans-BRK 96.0

18. Zach Randolph-MEM 98.6
19. Kris Humphries-BRK 98.8
20. Al Horford-ATL 98.9

Omer did not make the list last season nor this. I think Boozer makes the list because he plays almost all of his minutes with Noah and Deng. I also assume defensive rebounding is somewhere in the calculation, and Boozer is quite adept at that.
omer didn't play enough minutes to qualify ...his rating was 92 last season...this season its 103...guess there is a difference when you go up against starters, outside of thibs system.
