I watched Doug Dieken receive a lifetime achievement award at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards a couple weeks ago. Dieken is a guy who figured it out.

A game wherein the All-Star was benched for the entire fourth quarter — alongside the rest of the team’s starting unit — while his team would...
