well..... how's the player movement off ball within this system late in games?
It's too easy to trap Nash on the P&R and take away the first 2 options out of it if you have no player movement and spotty shooters.....
Not sure what the options are other than ISOs at that point and it's all because of the offensive philosophy in play.
This is where an offense like the Princeton would excel once it's learned.......... it's designed to get players the ball off of screen actions using player movement.
MDA ball does it here and there but mostly is just a couple guys standing around watching almost all the time..... way too easy to predict and stop if those guys standing around aren't sharp shooters.
I still think firing Brown was not a mistake but scrapping the Princeton altogether was a colossal one. If they would have stuck to it I think they would have been much better today than they are right now. Once they would have figured out the timing within it on what a good shot is floor balance wise they would have reduced the turnovers and transition hoops they were giving up while at the same time controlling the pace that is necessary for a vet team too succeed IMO...... instead the FO not only blinked, they panicked to the point of sh++ing the bed.
