I`ve just finished watching last nights game on my international league pass. One of the commentators made a very valid point in the first quarter and I was wondering what you all think.
We keep hearing that we need time to gel, time for Tyson Chandler to settle, time for Melo and Amare to gel. However, the point well made was that out of the five players starting last night only one of them was a new player. I know that Melo came just before the deadline last season but should we, they, whoever, be using a lack of time to gel as an excuse for our shambolic performances thus far this season?
Of course it will take time for Chandler to make an impact, we also have a new look bench with a couple of rookies and a new defensive coach. I am undecided as to how I feel about this one. So, I will hand the question over to those of you who have more knowledge and experience in these matters.
Is the time to gel an excuse to hide the fact that we have the worst coach in the NBA? Or is time to gel and adapt a legitimate arguement. Personally I don`t think things will improve until we sack our joke of a coach but that`s just my ever so humble opinion.
I look forward to hearing of your thoughts.
Happy new year from merry old England.
