Brown has the right intention of utilizing the Princeton offense...the problem is does he know it inside and outside and help these guys learn? Does he know how to make adjustments? Does he know how to counter a zone if they put that on us and still utilize Princeton? Lots of questions to be answered. I hope he just lets Eddie Jordan and Bernie Bickerstaff do their thing, I dont like seeing him talk to players in between stoppage of plays and telling them what spots on the floor to be at because as we saw yesterday (even Stu pointed it out), players with the ball are pointing at the guys to go to spots on the floor where they can pass the ball...like I know its a read and react offense but guys are thinking too much
And I would forget about running the Princeton when it comes to the bench...we didnt run a bit of the Triangle in 2008 and we reached the NBA Finals, we just let Farmar do pick and roll to shoot or he can just penetrate and find open shooters (Vlad, Fisher). Id just let Goudelock P & P or P & R with Jamison and let those guys create offense for others. I dont think Jamison/Hill/Ebanks etc can grasp it...hell even Nash and Pau are having trouble with it how can we expect our bench to understand it?
Our 2nd unit lineup should be...Glock/Meeks/Ebanks/Jamison/ at C Hill or Pau. 2 shooters, a stretch 4, a post player and a slasher.
Remember when Sessions came in and Mike just let him do his thing? Like no thinking, no pressure on trying to run an offense. It was basically encouraging him to look to score the ball if not find a n open player. Sessions becamse garbage after Brown told him to slow it down and run the offense.
