that is superjudge's point exactly! Smitch is either reluctant or incapable of running or designing plays and sets to draw each players talent and utilize it! Why the hell is Jose walking the ball all the time? because Smitch can't work this team in transition consistantly and that is killing us! every team knows we don't run so they kill us off turnovers which we are offering in bushells these days. Is Jose the only guy on this team who can run the offense? then Smitch is a worse coach than we all believed. when i coached, all of my guards could run our offense and did so successfully, it really isn't that hard. Watch the good teams and you will see players emerge under good systems like Rondo did under Doc and D-Will did under the master Jerry Sloan. when these guys are out, the offense hardly misses a beat as they all know and understand their place in it. our guys are lost on offense. THAT is coaching not talent! the lakers really don't care who is on the floor as they play jackson ball! or they sit.
lots of stuff to say on this topic! coaching is killing us at this point of the season as every team knows to be patient as we will self-destruct on offense in the second half.
