Agree that Bagley does not set good screens. It’s frustrating - because if he could just set good screens on guards - it would unlock our offense. And setting screens is not a hard thing to learn.
Also agree that chemistry with the guards has been lacking. As a fan, I don’t have any...
Sorta agree with this - but...Bagley could still get a lot better, on offense and defense. Young bigs take awhile. But they gotta want it. And it’s hard to tell if it is ever going to click for him to play with physicality on D. He’s a conundrum and he is talented.
Agree. And if you look at Kyrie Irving - he contributes substantially to wins on a good team. Not so good at making a bad team good.
But I think Haliburton negates some of the “score first pg” label for Fox. When they start together next year - the 1 and 2 positions are very fluid. So I don’t...
Another thing about Tyrese. He may develop a step back 3 that becomes a real weapon. Or we may find the perfect pick and roll finisher to complement him or someone that can set good screens to get him down hill. These type of changes could dramatically increase his impact.
I also think Ty is the type of player that will excel with other high IQ players. Once we have strong offensive and defensive concepts - I think he will execute at a high level and make everyone better. It’s the fear of contact that I think could limit him if he doesn’t get a lot stronger.
I’ll give Monte the benefit of the doubt. This team was given the opportunity for a full evaluation of the players and coaching staff. He now knows exactly what he’s working with - a team that needs more talent and toughness.
