Newsflash. You canít tell players that at their core are one thing, to be something fhey arenít and have it turn out well. It will turn out worse.
Man, I have to say it. Some of you people are positively nut jobs. We had a back up PG bricking shots, his back up bricking shots, a supposed up and coming star bricking shots, and itís the coaches fault? Are you people crazy?!?
Was he was supposed to play Nader? Or how about Larkin in street clothes? You donít just tell players to be disciplined. You donít just tell players to take good shots. Fact is, the better the player, the better the shots.
Wait, so you can't instruct them to look for higher percentage shots? I'm not exactly advocating for brain surgery, here, lol, just some helpful pointers and notes concerning the team's overall strategy, such as perhaps emphasizing in timeouts to throw the ball into Horford whenever he was being guarded by George Hill, for example, which, not surprisingly, worked every single time and was available during many of the possessions where the team opted to continue to jack threes . If the players don't see those matchups, etc., on the court, then it's up to the, well, coach to point them out, otherwise why even bother having a head coach in the first place, lol? Is that really being so unreasonable?
There are a multitude of reasons to explain why certain things happen. First, Rozier is not a good playmaker. In fact, heís pretty craptacular most of the time. He may simply be incapable of doing what want him to do consistently. And, heís been playying this way the entire playoffs. Canít whine now when it doesnít work.
The bottom line is this. Rozier was playing WAY over his head and was bound to come back to earth. Tell me again how thatís the coaches fault?
And before you say okay smart, what, the whole game? On average, heís worse offensive player than Rozier.
Again, tell how itís the coaches fault that his below average offensive players played below average?
Like o said, some of you guys are complete loons.
