players should also be blamed for playing small ball lineups and for forsaking offensive rebounds or rebounding in general.
Sullinger is averaging 3.5 offensive rebounds per 36 minutes for us.
For the record Kevin Love is currently averaging 3.5 Offensive Rebounds per game in 36 minutes, and he is currently 11th in the league in offensive rebounds per game.
If a 20 year old, undersized, unathletic, rookie PF with only 30 games of NBA experience can collect offensive rebounds at an elite rate while playing for this team, then that is living proof that you cannot blame our lack of rebounding on Doc or on the Boston system - you can only blame it on the players and their lack of ability and/or effort.
As for the Small Ball comments Fab Melo is in the D league (and out with a concussion) and Chris Wilcox is out with an injury. Kevin Garnett and Jason Collins are the only players we have who stand above 6'9" so what exactly would you have Doc do?
I actually saw an article recently where Doc was actually quoted admitting to the faults in his logic. He openly admitted that after it was so successful last year he tried to force the small lineup, but he now realised it wasn't working and he needed to try something different.
After this he moved Collins into the starting lineup and increased his minutes, which is exactly what all of the Doc haters were begging him to do.
So now that Doc has accepted his mistake and made the best change he possibly can with this roster, what more do you want him to do? The only way we can stop playing the small ball lineups is if we have enough talented size to soak up the minutes, and right now we don't.
I assure you that a trade or signing will be made in the next month or two which will change that, but for the time being there really isn't anything else he can do until that Jan 15 deadline passes. The fact that no deal has yet happened suggests to me that either Barbosa, Lee or Bass (I believe they can't be traded until Jan 15) is going to be a part of a deal.
Personally the only coaching change I'd have liked are:
1. I'd like to have seen more of the Bradley+Collins combination. The two seem to play extremely well together on defense and were distrupting plays when they were out there together.
2. I'd like to have seen more of Green and Lee, as I think they were both playing pretty well on both sides of the floor tonight.
