Right, it has nothing to do that half of the roster is playing like crap. It's Doc's fault, naturally. The players are spectacular.
I'm starting to believe Doc is as good as his assistant coaches. All he is a personality manager in the locker room. The brains are the assistant coaches.
In hindsight, Ainge should have hired Tom Thibodeau, and let Doc go home like he was intending a few seasons ago. Now we are stuck with him.
Before the season started experts were predicting us to finish second in the East. This team is underachieving bigtime. Doc isn getting the job done.
You have to put players in a posistion to succeed. Doc isnt getting it done. The offense is too overcomplicated.
Jason Terrys confidence is completely gone and so is Barbosas. Leonardo was playing great to start the season and Doc has completely negated this.
What about posting up Jeff Green on mutiple possessions or running the offense inside/out through Sully. Tommy has been advocating for this almost nightly. The talent of this team has been marginalized by bad coaching.
I have to admit, while I think Doc is a great coach and I trust him, I think the bulk of this Celtics squad has lost their faith in him. Doc is saying the right things, planning the right things and he knows this game inside and out - but a lot of the Celtics are just ignoring it. I don't get it, because players usually love Doc.
I could be wrong of course, it is easy to pick a target when thinking about where the problems lie, but if this team does still believe in Doc, I have no explanation for the play over the last several games.
