I definitely hope that's the case. Although I don't think Mitchell did a great job on defense I'd have to say the fault in that case falls heavily with the players. Hopefully JO will change the team's entire outlook on D. I don't agree with Bosh coming out publicly and criticizing the coach during the playoffs either. He needs to step up and take responsibility for losses if he is truly "the Franchise."
