Nobody is surprised that we're getting our ass kicked in this quarter. Might have something to do with these trash lineups Brad continues to roll out to start the 2nd.
Yeah, this flip-flopping with the bench rotations and the staggering of the starters is just baffling.
He went with the Al/Tatum staggering with the main bench group for several games, and it seemingly worked. Why he suddenly changed his mind is beyond me.
Serious question, because I see this comment a lot...is it possible that Brad is in the same mindset as the Warriors, Spurs, Cavs, etc...that essentially the regular season is pointless other than preparing for the post-season? Just like he's shifting our team to only three positions...he's only trying to shift the team to a group of players that can succeed in any type of lineup? So he's using 82 games to refine and determine which players can make that shift and which ones can't? And if we need to use the DPE or trades to find other players that can do it, we'll glean that info as well.
Don't really know if the strategy will ultimately be good or bad...but other than home court advantage, since we're almost guaranteed to make the playoffs in this conference...isn't this a better use of our regular season than simply trying to have the best record in the Eastern conference?
