I'm just saying it's worth noting that it took him a relatively long time to become an established head coach, which can't be a good thing, because obviously nothing about him screamed NBA HEAD COACHING POTENTIAL otherwise this would have happened much sooner.
This also means that once (if) he 'learns' what he needs to know to be an elite coach...he'll be about ready to retire. Which begs the question - does it actually make any sense to be investing time in him?
On a completely different note:
His first year here, the team leaps ahead miles and bounds defensively; because, we've been told, he's a defensive specialist. Ok, fine, the narrative's running along nicely...
...but second year, the team completely regresses defensively...
Has this ever been explained?
Not saying Im in that camp - there is no question our late game execution is HORRIBLE ... but there is a somewhat positive spin to this data ...
How do you attribute credit to a coach?
I think you have to be part of the organization. I don't think that we're really equipped to have any kind of real opinion.
We may see weird rotations, but we don't know why. Maybe the guy had a really bad practice and isn't feeling it. Maybe he told the coach his quads are burning and he needs a rest. Maybe he told the coach he didn't get a good night's rest and to yank him early if he isn't performing. Maybe there's a teaching side to his decisions.
Coaching is a face to face kind of job. You base your decisions on personal factors that can't necessarily be perceived by spectators watching the game on screen.
I just really don't feel comfortable passing any judgement on our coaches outside of our team under or over performing expectations. I trust Masai to make the right call, whatever it be.
No doubt, there are waaaaaaay more things going on with the coaching than we could begin to know about.
(That said: Dwane, just give to Kyle at the end of the game, ok?)
I think the point JimiCliff and SVG were trying to make is that despite this perceived statistical advantage, the undermining of his culture of responsibility caused by these "bad" shots can trickle into the rest of the game, or even practice or other games down the road.
SVG was talking about placing a priority on his "culture of responsibility" as opposed to a temporary increase in the scoring margin by a fraction of a field goal.
LOL at guys ripping Casey for late game coaching.
FFsakes guys, he is a smart guy, has been mentored by amazing coaches, and has a fantastic staff... why is it so difficult to understand that players have to actually execute the plays called for them.
Casey has done well.
