The coach can do a lot of things, but I'd love for the players to begin saying on the court, "enough of this". It's gotta be grating on the nerves of some of the players.

Again, I think Lowry really could take a bigger leadership role here as the overall floor general. Being a PG isn't just about passing the ball to the right target.
It does seem that the rhetoric of the coach and said players suggests there is some inherent belief in the room that it's all about those two leading us somewhere. They talk about how they are the scorers, and leaders, of the team, but this team seems like it has too much role definition and not enough accountability. We can't have our two best players defining themselves by how many points they score.
