Isiah Thomas cant coach and his coaching staff is not giving him the flow of the WINNING Coaches in the league philosophy this season.
The majority of all the WINNING Teams in the league are using a 2-UNIT chemistry team with 9 to 11 players in their rotation early in the season to keep from injuries. These teams are taking advantage of the three or four bench players that play well together so they are playing them together.
Lakers Coach Phil Jax are doing something Strong with the combination bench players of "C-Kwame, PG-Famer, and SF-Ariza" the chemistry is flowing between the 3 players in the last 4 games.
Isiah Thomas is still trying to find bench players that could co-exist with his non-chemistry Starting-5 lineup that dont play defense. That's not coaching, that is wasting time trying to figure out how to get the colors on the square reubic-cube.
