We'd be better than a 2nd round exit if we had Adelman. But I don't see us winning a chip with this current roster regardless of the coach. It's a little bit of both.
I hear you Rev and Roo as well. I also think this roster under Adelman could have gone places. Pau and Sessions would both be utilized correctly and I think you'd see a lot more cohesion with this team. Adelman has a system and it would have fit very well with this bunch of guys. It needed a penetrating PG instead of Fish, and we got that at the trade deadline with Sessions. Brown has simply decided to either squash him or just not play him for the most part. Ron Ron also played some of his best ball under Adelman.
Well, can't cry over spilt milk, but . . .
I do like some of our young guys like GLOCK and Ebanks and would have liked to have seen them get more run. Sessions fits that category in some ways, too. Brown just didn't trust him.
I don't see us winning anything with this coach. I think Bynum doesn't respect or like him, and I see him as a very stubborn and conservative guy who has next to no idea of how to utilize his players and put them in a position to succeed on the offensive end.
Perhaps you guys are right and you need a complete overhaul of the team, but I hate thinking like that. I'd hate to trade Pau when his value is at an all time low. Other than Pau there are really no big moves to be made. Roo is saying you can't just tweak the squad, but you don't have a lot of tradable guys either.
To me the smarter move was to bring in a coach who could work with the players here. That can still be the case.
