People tend to overrate coaches of other successful teams. Even a guy like George Karl.
something that struck me during the press conference was that he was sending Mermuys to LA to help work with the player development in the offseason. That convinced me that we need to keep consistent with not only the head coach but also the coaching staff. At least for another year to see if we can go even higher (50 plus win season + second round in playoffs + contender status).
Missing a couple of shots is excusable. Failing to box out, leaving the ball down for an easy strip. lobbing lazy passes or constantly failing to properly rotate is less excusable to Casey.
Somewhat off topic, but should Masaii bring in Mark Jackson to be a part of the coaching staff?
Now considering all that there's no way he's taking a non-head coach job but I'm just saying, why do you believe he was the problem?
I fully think Jackson was the problem. There can't be that many issues and it's everyone else's fault.
Warriors are stacked at every position, they under achieved if anything. Warriors have been my 2nd team since Bogut went there so I watch all their games. His rotations are even worse than Casey's. For the first half of the year he was bringing in all 5 bench guys at the same time and regularly losing 20 point leads to nothing in a few minutes. Their offense is seriously questionable. So many awful iso post ups with David Lee, Klay and Harrison Barnes (ugh). For as many brilliant shooters, passers and players they have, their offense was broken much of the time. It took him 3/4 of the year to work out that Draymond Green is way better than Barnes and deserves big minutes. He never played the defensive juggernaut lineup of Bogut, Green, Iggy, Klay and Steph together even though it is absolutely immense. And on top of it he has a gigantic ego and had two of his assistants removed like stated above. The players absolutely adore him (at least publicly) , mostly due to his religious ways so they're probably upset at this.
If you read the quotes of all the players defending him en masse when questioned about his possible firing a few months ago, they all say how much they love him and what a great father figure he is and that he's brought them closer to god etcetcetc
