30+ three point shots again!
Come on you guys...y'all should know better. This ish won't work come playoff time. If you guys are happy with a 10-9 record coming off a lowly Kings team, then I guess mission accomplished.
The only thing I can be satisfied with is great effort in an otherwise flawed design. But why should I credit a coach that encourages that type of design, to begin with.
If anything, our "success" is infuriating cause it gives motive for management to remain status quo and keep delivering us these shenanigans!
Kudos to you guys though for looking for any silver lining...even though that line is some 22+ feet away.
If it's not Phil and it's not the triangle, it will never work.
Name a team in the NBA whose offense we should be running that doesn't have a consistent post player on that team?
Every team runs pick and roll, horns, iso's and off ball screens. We don't have a consistent post player, so it eliminates half the offense we can run.
We shoot 5 more 3's per game than Miami.
We shoot 3 more 3's per game than Portland.
This isn't the 90s and 00s anymore, this is what teams do. Is MDA on the more extreme side of that, for sure, but we don't have personnel to shift it the other way and dump it in the post.
Dallas won it all shooting the 3rd most 3's at 22/game
Miami won it all shooting 20/game in 2012 and 2013
Lakers won it all shooting 21/game in 09-10.
We are shooting 26/game so far this season without a post player to eat into that. MDA isn't the greatest coach, I'm not defending him, I'm defending the fact that you think this offense is trash, even though a majority of it is basic stuff other teams run with in the game today.
