Except he didn't say anything about blame. He said the ones responsible are the ones who made the decision. Which is about as black and white as you can get.
I loved the answer as well, the real answer, not Benzo's version, because he was completely honest, he didn't say yes just for the sake of saying the right thing, he said the team is 8-9, and it's to early to consider the team underachievers.
It's unrealistic to expect yourself and your team to not go through slumps during an 82 game season in the NBA. I'm sure it's not acceptable to Chris, but he's realistic about it. They're not even a quarter of the way done.
It's a positive answer, he obviously still expects the team to do well this year.
And for the record, we had about 4 wide open back door cuts against Denver, Jose was just to scared to throw the ball.
