All of this talent yall claim we have is fine & dandy provided they show up over the course of a series. But none of those guys are doing anything right now and we get the result we are getting. No level of coaching whether we have a JV coach or Red Auerbach is going to overcome players not showing up for a series.
That's all I was saying...
Bro...when good/great players don't show up consistently...that's coaching. Players play...it's up to the coach to put them in position to use their talents in a manner that'll get wins. Otherwise you get the Houston Rockets.
Just look at how Mchale is playing the high pick and roll...he's got James Harden switching on to Blake Griffin from the foul line down...Mchale thinks JAMES HARDEN can defend Blake Griffin in the paint!!!!! Which leaves Dwight on a island after Blake blows by James to pick up fouls or you get CP3/JCrossover on the perimeter vs. T Jones or Josh...I mean WTF?! You wouldn't do that on NBA 2k. This is basic stuff.
Don't even get me started on going to hack a Deandre in the first quarter.
More players is not the answer...#1 you aren't going to get every player you "need" and #2...Every team has weaknesses personnel wise, at the end of the day you can't assemble an all-star team to sure up every position., but Morey has done a damn good job assembling talent... on paper the Rockets match up with any team in this league.
