    The problem is when your coach and 2/5 of the starting lineup ride & die with the "give it to Will" style game plan.

    Casey even said that this roster doesn't have players capable of passing.

    What's the point of waiting, if a rebuild is the ultimate strategy?

    First of all, the value of the outgoing assets will be diminished, since they'll be older and controllable for a shorter period...

    I was wondering about how that fits with Casey's rant last year (or was it two seasons ago?), where he commented that this team didn't have guys capable of passing.

    I still really struggle with...

    I suppose it depends on whether or not those players agree or disagree with MU's assessment. For all we know, the equal two-way accountability for all players is something they championed (remember...

    The tricky thing with 3pt shooters is that aside from a small elite group, they're like relief pitchers in baseball; all-stars one season, dime-a-dozen the next.

    It's also hard to find a guy that...

    If MU's statements are more than just "BS" as he mentioned these pressers are, it's hard to understand how the core (Casey/Lowry/DeRozan) could be retained through a culture change.

    I've been feeling the exact same way since "Fuck Brooklyn!" became "Fuck, coach, how did you let us lose to Brooklyn?".

    Don't you mean 3 years?

    He should have been fired after the 'Fuck Brooklyn' series, when he drew up the decisive play on the wrong side of the court.

    Time for MU to retool, starting at the top.

    The bold is what scares me more than an LBJ fast break. If this core's peak is ECF, depending on their 2nd round matchup, is it worth reinvesting in?

    I actually think this raises a bigger beef I have long had with Casey - role cards. DeRozan and Lowry are primarily expected to score, while other players are expected to defend, rebound, set picks,...

    How could anybody else step up when the game plan doesn't include them, aside from setting picks, rebounding or defending? Casey is a joke because he never worries about option C, D, E, etc... in...

    I'm so done with this Casey/DeRozan/Lowry circa-1999 crap. Play like a team and don't build a team that's designed to compliment false superstars. Same complaints for 4 straight years of playoff...

    That is due to the lack of creativity from Casey, or the inability to draw upon the natural strengths of the player... or his stubbornness. Probably all of the above.

    Whether it's Powell or Ross...

    When JV gets the ball in the low-post, he's usually expected to try and score. Is Bebe?

    Getting the ball in the post 2-4 times a game, half of which are clear-out plays that the rest of the team take off, is hardly comparable to actually running the offense through the post.

    This is a great point. No other PG is a 3pt threat like Lowry, and Patterson is a total glue guy (and 3pt shooter), whether he's at the 4 or 5.
