We are talking about a competition where there are games every 2 days, so you need to have players well rested.
While I agree with that, and some good rotations are needed, I think some of Aitos moves were pretty bad. I dint like one bit the way he handled Navarro and Rudy. For example, IMO Rudy was playing terrible in the pool play, he should had played less.

Another thing I dont like about too much rotations is that you dont get players to get in a good rythm.

He didnt do badly. Defense actually improved with the new coach in the pre-olympics. I dont know, the problem with Spain was that they got too confident.
