Can we just forfeit? I cant watch this anymore.
Shump will pressure the ball, and Chandler would be there to clean up the mistakes. But there's very little team defense from the first unit. Melo isn't the worst on-ball defender, if anything, sometimes he's too over zealous picking up cheap fouls.
But they don't exactly function as a unit, it's just guys out there doing their thing. The 2nd unit comes in and plays like a squad.
So I split the blame between the stars, and team preparation. What's the percentages between each side tho? I dunno.
Guess if I was simple in the mind...everything would be fine.
well hopefully melo has this stroke for the next game...
But make no mistake, something needs to be done about the attitude and effort of this team on the defensive end.
MDA needs to fix that quickly because we already look disjointed with so many new players/returning players.
The offense is now solely consisting of one on one ISO plays and some half hearted picks for Lin. We CANNOT go back to being a jump shooting team because we aren't going to win **** much like last year.
This team looks like they don't ****ing care at all. Either that or they haven't got the slightest idea how to play defense.
Melo is finally shooting over 50% and scoring at a high clip yet we can win and why
because we have a wide open system, we have no structure, guys dont have defined roles and our coach does not understand how to make in game adjustments
I doubt any one cares but I turned off the game and was flipping through channels and caught Jordan Farmar hitting a game winning 3 against the clippers.
