why isn't the rifleman getting heat for pathetic coaching?

chuck person is either a spineless wimp or a moron like MDA. metta is just horrific on defense and i don't know why he doesn't blast this guy going into timeouts. D12 isn't on the floor and metta is shading lebron to his strong hand towards the basket. he has to know there is zero help in that situation. not to mention i have never seen a guy get away with reaching and swiping at the ball more than metta. that is horrible defense. defense is played with your feet and his are constantly in the wrong position because all he relies on is reaching,poking at the ball. and these so called fast hands :disagree: . every sport i know of they teach defense is played with your feet and positioning yet he tries to body up lebron and durant and they just blow by him when he tries to swipe and poke the ball out. maybe metta should start drinking hennessy again at half time because he is so lost on defense. MDA is spineless and it looks like our lame "defensive coordinator " is as well. The coaches are afraid to challenge the players this seems to be the biggest issue because these things are correctable. this entire coaching staff is full of wimps.

Most assistants, if not all of them, are out of sight, out of mind. The responsibility falls on the head coach.

Blaming Chuck Person for Ron's inabilities (both physically and mentally) is unfair.

Gary Vitti deserves a good chunk of blame for this too.

you may be right but we all know MDA is completely worthless. maybe chuck is just there to
babysit metta from self destructing.

MDA brought in his own guys. The others left over from the MB circus are just riding the pine.

Not that this matters, but I'm pretty sure Chuck Person is the only leftover from the Phil days.

With that alone, I can't blame the man for anything. He also has the respect of the players from what I have heard. Was working with Dwight on FT's, etc.

he is

and i don't see why there's any reason in blaming chuck person. all the blame for the coaching staff falls squarely on dan tony. i still do not understand why they kept all of brown's staff. like wasn't eddie jordan brought in just to teach the princeton? he should have been let go when dan tony came in along with bernie and clifford

Pringles probably knew that nobody else would want to be on his staff...with everyone knowing that he is inept at implementing a system that fits his players strengths.

Assistant coaches are the last people on my list to blame with all the talent we have and the joke of a head coach, and the guys who hired him.

Can someone tell me why Nate McMillan hasn't been hired as our assistant coach?

Could it be that what happens on the floor is up to the players and their respective abilities and egos?........ No.... What was I thinking? It's got to be the coaching.... :man10:

The mix of players doesn't work unless its a video game.... That's where 90% of our problem are.

I think our roster is built perfectly. I think our problem is the coaching, but even worse, our problem is the players themselves. Dwight and Pau Gasol... more specifically, especially when it comes to effort (well, except the few games that Pau played well in before his injury)

:man3:

Roster build perfectly?..... then.... our problem is the players themselves?

The Roster is a "Fantasy" roster that was put together without a lot of thought IMO. It was a combination of moves to give Kobe another shot and provide ownership with a post Kobe "Star". Bynum was on the way out regardless IMO so they got Howard to fill the middle and be the face of the franchise.... They got Nash because it filled the largest void we've had on our roster for nearly 10 years.... point guard. The problem is that no one stopped to think about ball distribution, floor balance and team speed/defense.

I voiced some concerns back in the summer about our team's balance and how a bunch of former "Alpha's" would work together with seemingly incomplete games. While Howard and Nash are great players they are neither complete players. Kobe and Pau are much more complete in that they can play a number of different ways. Nash is very one dimensional as is Howard and they do not complement each other. Also the fact we ignored the bench and SF positions in favor of keeping Pau killed us this year.... we got fortunate with Clark but other than him our reserves are all one way or no way players who lack consistency.....
