any more. at all.
Gracious. Are they inconsistent? Absolutely, but one thing I've noticed is if one guy gets going, the rest of them get going. I do believe they are into each other and pulling for the success of one another (think about how an early JG dunk gets them going).
Doc...is a great guy I'm sure. But if I were Courtney Lee, Jeff Green or even Jason Terry tonight, I would go into the locker room and laugh too. How could you not play them more? How could you not create plays for them WHEN IT MATTERS MOST? How do you let them get you back 10 points only to let your Captain come in and mess everything up? AND YOU NEVER SIT HIM!
Everyone wants to bash Rondo, but he's TRYING. I really do think he is. Bad passes, bad turnovers, cuz he's trying to FORCE playing with these guys. Who does he always pass poorly to? Bass or Pierce because he's trying to get them into the game. He rarely fumbles oops with Wilcox, Green, AB.
Doc is underutilizing his talent. AND ALL THE PLAYERS KNOW! You don't think the players aren't AT LEAST subconsciously blaming PP? And Doc cannot be respected because it's a glaring problem and he will not correct it. Nor will he correct the problem with Bass. I mean...Korver took 8 threes before we put our best defender on him. PP obviously could not guard Josh Smith.
Doc is either hopeful, reliant, loyal or stuck in the past. But he needs to speed up to 2013. You have a team built to run and your starters RARELY do that unless it's Rondo and/or AB. Your ENTIRE 2nd unit runs and performs well...and have really been bailing us out in most games.
Coach has to do better. And PP has to as well (though I think he's coming around). My point is people are saying everyone lacks mental toughness and they're just babies, etc. etc. I disagree. It's just really hard to respect a guy who will not face reality. It's hard to do spectacular things when (I assume) you're told not to be doing them (I heard someone put it like the offense is micromanaged).
How would you feel? I mean you CLEARLY have the talent. IF you were a bench player? A guy who got 17 and 6 on tonight? Or a guy who has made 7 points in under 3 minutes before? How would you feel? Serious question.
