i kind of understand how they lack adaptability, but in a way that is the wrong mentality because your team shouldn't really be adapting so much as it should be commanding the play on the court so the other team has to adapt
i understand what you're trying to say in that when a team comes at you offensively you need to change our defense to defend their plays, but at the same time offensively you shouldn't really adapt so much as you should be pushing your game plan
but there should be some adaptation to maybe start using another set of our plays
but this kind of goes with the players you have, usually being able to adapt has to do with having athletic players on the floor because they mainly run and defend, our offense is to give it to the bigs or to swing and kick for jumpers, we don't really have the athletes and slashers to create and move according to the defense, that was what TJ was for but when he started adapting and creating everyone else got confused and now he's not here anymore
