He also lost us 3 games. So I mean.... it balances out.
This team still hasn't recovered from the horrendous 2016 summer.
It'd be a lot worse had some of his primary targets signed here, like Chandler Parsons.
I marked players.
Turnovers. You think that’s Stotts’ fault? The turnovers were so horrendous it had nothing to do with type of offense etc. it was laziness and being way too loose with the ball
Taking bad shots: you think Terry Stotts, who was thought of as a good offensive coach suddenly forgot how to coach it? That a guy who has been in the nba since the 70’s doesn’t know how to get open looks? Players are taking HORRIBLE shots that even a rookie knows are bad.
Executing: this staff has sets, an offensive philosophy and likely 50 quick hitters they try each game but players are not executing. They have to make shots. They have to take good shots first.
The nba is a players league. Unless a roster is devoid of talent it’s on them to get it done. Stotts didn’t forget how to coach this summer. He isn’t Popovich by any means but at some point these guys need to step the fuck up and own their pathetic play.
All those are legitimate issues, however the lack of execution is directly related to coaching.
Does Stotts ever get on someone for a lazy turnover or or a bad shot? I've rarely seen that.
Coaches are the only ones who can hold the team accountable.
Right now, I'm seeing a whole lot of players doing whatever the hell they'd like because there's no accountability.
The coaching staff isn’t without blame but I have seen every Blazer except Collins get an opportunity. They have tried everyone. Guys have sat for stretches when they don’t perform. Lillard, CJ and Nurk haven’t but they are your best players and in this league you really don’t bench those guys. See: Fizdale.
Maybe thats the problem. No consistency?
It takes time to develop rhythm and rhythm comes from knowing your role. Maybe we have been mixing it up too much? And btw, he has said he has made changes based on other teams. Thats not trying other options.. thats freaking out about other teams threats and trying to find an answer.
Maybe he needs to solidify the lineup and not have a player on the hotseat after a bad game.. this includes trhis forum and fans.
Maybe we need to relax. Maybe Stotts needs to relax and stop trying to fix.. and let consistency fix itself?
I know it's Sounds weird, but I want to see more from meyers in the next games
Why is Dame the only one who dives for loose balls? That bothers me.
