I have to agree.
If anyone can answer these for me, be my guest.
Who is teaching them rebounding fundamentals?
Why does anyone with a pulse burn them on the perimeter?
Why no two man game with our wings and McGary?
Why is Spike playing extended minutes and he is a liability?
Why do our guys dribble around the perimeter instead of probing the paint?
Why does McGary have as many shots as Horford or Morgan?
Levert is the lead guard of this team not Spike, not Walton. Things happen when he has the ball.
The two big lineup does not work. We still get out rebounded because even our bigs are soft.
Irvin cannot play the 4 position next year.
WE NEED TO LOOK AT USING A 2-3 ZONE LIKE SYRACUSE AND VERMONT
Not sure if you seriously want someone to answer or you are just ranting but I will guess the former:
Rebounding - Bacari + JB, we have never rebounded well under JB so don’t see why this is such a concern right now. We always seem to run smaller lineups anyway.
Getting Burnt on Perimiter - Probably exaggerating just a little here. Stauskas tweaked ankle and Caris got beat one time that I can remember, though it was a bad time to get beat.
Two man game w/ wings and McGary - Stauskas/McGary run pick and roll all the time so not sure why this is a question.
Why is Spike playing - Come on man. This sounds like you spent all summer telling folks Walton was the second coming. Spike is solid, at least.
Why do we dribble around the perimiter instead of probing - Watching different games than me. In any event, not a video game you can’t just beat a guy to the paint every time you touch it.
Why does McGary have as many shots as Horford/Morgan? - Easily your best question. Hard to tell. Coaches pretty clearly think Horford has a superior back to the basket game. McGary still being banged up might have something to do with it, or maybe it just happened that way within the flow of the game because sports, ya know.
Neither Spike nor Walton are being treated as the lead guard so not sure where that next comment is coming from.
2 bigs does not work and we are soft - Maybe it doesn’t in this system but the guy that invented the system seems to believe that it will. You were complaining about rebounding earlier in this rant though so not sure which one you want now. Robinson was hurt anyway so unless you are advocating playing Irvin for the entire game, someone has to play 4. That makes the options (1) 100% Irvin (2) Stauskas or Levert at 4 or (3) another big which is what we have been practicing. You want to complain about rebounding but then you want to play Walton, Spike, Caris, Stauskas, and McGary at the same time. But yet again you also said you don’t want to play Spike and Walton, so can’t do that right? Basically, not following you here.
Irvin cannot play 4 next year - Better hope we have at least one of Caris/Stauskas go pro then or Irvin could explore his options. Not saying he will, I’m saying that I would. Being that highly rated and then playing sparingly for your first 2 years while waiting for your 3rd is not a very common practice. To say this, you have to assume one of Donnal, Chatman, Wilson, or maybe Doyle is going to start at 4 since you do not want 2 bigs. You can probably rule Chatman out of your preferred lineup because of your rebounding concerns and him being 6’6".
Moral of the story, calm down man it is one game in November. We have tons of young talent and great coaching. Just missed some easy shots and had a couple too many turnovers tonight. Sometimes you just lose, that is the nature of sports.
EDIT: Forgot one (Zone) - Our D really is not really that bad. Looks better than last year, the year we played for the national championship. In any event, zone is for cowards.
