really, every pg likes to run the pick and roll these days. how many offenses aren't constructed around it?
Rockets is one team that doesn't run it at all. At most they run pick-and-pop(instead of rolling, you pop that open jumper which means little spacing for the PG) and screen and rolls like a NCAA college team and chucks up 3's. Their offensive system is pretty terrible. Lin is playing horribly, but in a system where he is to sit on the 3 point line and chuck 3's without the ball and no pick and roll, the coaches are making him play AGAINST his strengths imo. Really exploits his mediocre outside shooting.
Honestly, I'm glad we don't have McHale(Rocket's coach) as our coach. Mike Brown was a 100x better coach then McHale would ever be. He looks like he has no idea what he's doing beside ISO Harden, and shoot 3's to stretch the floor and open the lane for him, and his defensive system is a joke. Horrible at directing the offense and the defense, what good does he do? At least that's one team we would never have to worry about though. Especially if they continue believing Harden is a franchise player
Biggest joke I've ever seen.
