This is exactly what I, and another poster (forgot the S/N) was saying about the MDA and Mozgov situation. MDA was talking about having confidence in the player, in the media, but was sitting him on the bench when we were sorely in need of some rebounding. Then when 2 players in our short rotation are out....magically Mozgov was "primed and ready?" Really?
Is that similar to how a female who IS NOT a gold digger only comes around when she needs money from you or for you to buy something for her? But she's not a gold digger...you know...because she told you she's not.
MDA says whatever he needs to say in the moment. You can see it all over his face when he starts searching for the "right" answer and then starts mumbling.
