I love the fact people criticize Doc for not trusting his bench enough(aka the bigs) then in the same sentence mention who the bench players are like they are some sort of set of All-Stars.

The bigs off the bench are Darko, Wilcox, Collins, Melo and either bass or Sully depending on who starts.

Darko sucks.
Wilcox is serviceable at best if he is healthy which isn't often.
Collins sucks.
Melo is a rookie who at the moment, sucks as a professional basketball player.
Bass is a good rotational player, probably an okay starter or above average bench player.
Sully is probably a little worse than Bass at this point.

Who exactly is there to trust off the bench who is a big?

Nick is right.  Trust is earned.  In this case, because it is early in the season, it is earned in practice.  Doc  got us to a seventh game against the eventual champions last year with a cast of beat up hurting players who were playing way over their potential.   Doc is a master of getting players to buy into the "team" system.  Just because some fans don't buy into docs methods does not mean players don't, and the players say they would run through walls for him.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift...
   That is why it is called the present.
