Ask yourself this...
1. Would our team perform so poorly under Doc Rivers, Phil Jackson, Pop, or even Van Gundy?
2. Wasn't there a chicken or egg debate about who's to blame; the coach or the players?
3. What team looks so good yet so bad from game to game?
4. Who's in charge of producing leaders, accountability, and in game adjustments?
5. What coach has a winning resume but hasn't won?
Well the verdict is in. It might be my impatience but I think I'm comvinced. We are the Dallas cowboys of BB, and MDA is Wade Phillips.
His body language says it all. His speeches and lack of accountability says more. First it was talent.
So we brought MDA in here b/c we thought he could persuade talent... he failed.
We brought MDA in to reinvigorate the offense... he failed.
We adhered to this spread P & R philosophy, and blamed the players, but for some reason, we can't execute it... why? Could it be b/c even when ran to perfection it lacks fundamentals? Just maybe...
Haven't we disected this to no end? And haven't we concluded it was the players? Well perenial all-stars were added... a playoff experienced PG was added, and what happened?
Defense was added... and what happened?
I'll tell you what happened... MDA is the Wade Phillips of BB. More talent and not enough of what's needed.. Leadership. Accountability. Consistency.
Our mistakes began with drafting Gallo.. b/c of who...? MDA
We gutted our roster and added "athletic" players, suited for a system, who can't execute, b/c of who...? MDA
Why are we missing but STILL chucking 3's? MDA
Why can't we run the basic plays like a P&R? B/c we neglect to exploit the low post and work from the inside out.. why? MDA
Why isn't Gallo (the best shooter ever) confident, and so streaky? MDA conditioning.
Why isn't the rotation set? MDA
Why don't we have Lopez & Jennings? MDA
