So, what does everyone think of the coach - player (in this case PG) dynamic in Dallas and how it played out. In my mind there are 2 major issues here: 1) Who is in charge of the team on the court 2) Player response/inter action with coach.
This issue is more "dynamic" because of the 2 "combatants"...Carlisle & Rondo both very high level/all star type individuals and further compounded by the fact that some major resources were exchanged for Rondo a soon to be UFA.
There is also some resonance here to some of the coach & player discussions on this board re the Raptors. How does Casey interact with his players...is he too easy...should he exert more play discipline...should he sit certain players for inadequate play. Clearly these were issues in the Mavs incident and I would argue the stakes much larger.
