Casey's D - fine; Casey's O - ???
I just hate Casey's offense, his rotations, assignments on offense and the offensive schemes are just rubbish... is it that hard to understand what the strengths and weaknesses are of your players?
-DeRozan is a slasher, with Casey he is taking mid-range and 3-balls.
-Kleiza is a post-up player and will knock down the 3, with Casey he's getting accidental shots and often gets the ball in bad positions or when shot clock is expiring (I don't expect him to perform well after the injury for another 5 games or so; but damn give him some looks in the post...).
-Barbosa is the only guy who seemingly is not affected by the chaos on O, but you don't want him to have the ball in his hands all the time as it was so often lately, cause he's not a good passer and will only create for himself. Ball should either be in hands of Calderon or somewhere in the post or flying across the perimeter (team play).... but it looks like Casey loves Barbosa running in circles (don't get me wrong, I like Barbosa and it's not his fault Casey can't come up with anything better).
-Amir should be always in place for offensive boards and score off of those and not sit at the top of the key and take 18 foot jumpers.
-Everybody else shouldn't act like they can score in multiple ways and only should take wide open shots and not try to make more than they're capable (James Johnson, Butler, Forbes etc). When you watch these guys, you think they only watch Wade's, Kobe's or some Monta Ellis highlights.
Of course Bargnani is missing and things are messed up, but come on, this is just ridiculous. There is no offensive idea whatsoever, every offensive possession is played randomly; they don't use every players strengths as they should; they rather expose every players weaknesses... it's amazing that the much improved defense still allows us to remain in the game sometimes...
