I wanted a legit, drawn up "textbook" play with more structure and drawn up points to it...And I view the lack of such things in certain spots (following time outs, key situational positions) as D'ant's biggest weakness.
Making him pretty mediocre as an in-game strategy coach.
But it also wasn't D'ant's design to take a 3, let alone Wilson to take a 3, let alone Wilson to lay an absolute brick. (without rehashing an expose' on what SSOL really is and the game theory/philosophy MD strives to operate within.
For better or worse, and worse in this case, it was on the players to execute. Just in MD's team, versus a more traditional offense, when players don't execute, it often looks worse and more slapdash and like we have an absolutely empty suit at the helm.
Or at least to execute better than foolishly chucking the ball back and forth around the perimeter like manics, until hot potato ended, Wilson happened to have the potatoe, and he heaved a terrible shot from the 3 line.
Yet we still won the game.
It's a game of edges, and variance, and plenty of losses bundled up even within the most winning philosophy -- or even most winning team.
I wouldn't say there is a method to MD's madness. So much as there is a madness to his method.
