You are taking what I'm saying to literal here.I'm not saying beilein or the assistants are literally telling him " don't pass, or you don't need to look for the drop off or kick out." I'm saying the way this team is built leads to maar looking to score more as opposed to passing. We don't have anyone besides him who can finish really so I think it's his mentality when he goes to the rack to put points up. It's also very late in the shot clock alot as we have just dished around the perimeter for twenty seconds. The new shot clock hurt here.
He's not looking to pass a lot because he knows if we're gonna get buckets to the rim it's him a lot of the time doing so. It's his strength and what the team needs out of him/ his role to go get buckets and finish. I don't think it's because he's incompetent at passing. He's trying to get a bucket at the rim for us and he's the best man for the job.
Maybe you saw it different but there wasn't many times where I felt "oh maar just missed so and so wide open, what a ball hog or no vision. I didn't get that vibe when watching him play.
Like I said were way apart here on what he brings/ what we need out of him. We could always use assists out of our guards but I do know his ability to get to the rim was and probably will be essential again to us having any success.
