One coach can get minutes out of Duncan Robinson and Hayward Highsmith in Game 7 because fuck it - see what works. The other dude can't even give heaters like PP or Hauser a look. Yes the stars lost the game. But man, a little creativity might've been nice. I'd be fine without both JB and CJM next year.

Nope. He called the TOs everyone wanted. He should have tried Hauser, but it wouldn’t have mattered. The whole team not named White was mediocre to bad.
Again, it’s the coach’s job to have then prepared to have multiple defenses to throw at Miami, to design and offense that can beat a zone, to adjust to somehow find a way to make Caleb Martin not be so fucking open all the time. He’s blameless on the players sucking but the outcome of the series has his fingerprints all over it imo. They just don’t know how to score of the 3s aren’t falling

If Tatum is hurt, which he is, the Denver series would have been a laugher anyway. Starting Thursday? No chance either way.

And for anyone who says, "If the season is lost because they didn't play Hauser or PP then they don't deserve it", the reply is: when you have a bunch of guys sucking or hurting, you need to try SOMETHING else, and those guys are on the team and possess some skills that your team on the floor is lacking right now.

Yeah, Tatum is the biggest problem tonight. Oh wait, he isn’t.
No. It's good when your best player has 12 points, defers unless he has a wide open shot, and acts like a second fiddle on offense.

Winning formula having White as your number one.

Fine, fire him and hire who? If this team still has Brown on it next year they won’t win shit.

First time I’ve ever been serious about trading Jaylen. That’s enough of this. This group doesn’t have IT

Spo has gone with a tiny rotation, he went to Highsmith because Mazzulla made adjustments that made Love unplayable. He gave PP two looks, he was absolute shit. And let's be clear... he's not benching Jaylen Brown for Hauser... it's just not gonna happen, that's not how the NBA works, your stars get the whole season of rope to fail.

Brown literally can't dribble without turning it over. Never seen anything like it.
