I will say it one more time because I am pretty sure of this
Doc cant play lot of player rotations (hes better with limited lineups)
Doc Xs and Os are vastly overrated
And IF the players are underachieving its easy, sit them and play the others
The only game JET played well is the only game JET has had consitant minutes.
It seems like you are contradicting yourself here. On the one hand you say "if players are underachieving, sit them" yet on the other, you say; "Jet only produced when he got consistent minutes."
You see the flaw? If Doc had pulled Jet when he was underachieving, he would have never gotten the chance to produce.
This has always been my problem with being so quick to blame the coach. He's basically in a lose-lose scenario among a lot of fans. If the team performs well, it's because of the talent, and he has nothing to do with it. However, when they are struggling, it's all his fault.
Well with players underachieving i was talking about his perennial gotos, bass, pierce and KG, rondo and for underachieving i count when theyre tired or gassed too.
But over all Doc seems to change a little his direction yesterday, hope he keeps it that way
I agree that he seems to be changing his direction, but I also think that his players are helping him to change that direction.
A huge example is Chris Wilcox; having him start to be in condition to contribute really seems to change the outlook for this team. Wilcox will never be mistaken for an all-star, but his role on this team is an extremely important one. It means we don't have to go with two undersized power forwards on the front line together.
We can see that Doc is still trying to figure out what to do with Jeff Green. This one is a conundrum as nobody seems to want to see Jeff get time at the four, but with Paul Pierce as our starting small forward, Doc is going to have to find creative ways to put Green in a position to be a key contributor.
Coaches have to take risks and make gambles. When they pay off, he's a genius, when they don't he's a goat. Mostly, throughout his career as the Cs head coach, Doc's gambits have paid off. He's earned my trust. So, I'm willing to give him time and benefit of doubt, even when I'm watching the game, and saying to the TV screen, "I wouldn't be playing that guy in this situation."
