In regards to my Joerger post:

One of the ways a coach can **** up a team is irregular rotation minutes. Like any job, you feel better knowing what your role is. If you keep resetting the roles of everyone then you can junk that cohesive element up. I feel it's rather obvious there is no continuity in this team right now. You can argue, from a point of view, that Fox returning to the Starting Lineup after weeks of absence is a snag. Except, what lineup and rotation is consistent? What established system does Fox screw up? None. That's the suspect part. Why does Skal start or not play at all? Nothing aimed towards success works like this. Joerger signed up here with a top 10 player n roster and then that guy was gone. This and the rotation sabotage is why I give this thought.
I pretty much agree with this. I conclude that the team is tanking and that's why...but then we will beat the top 2 teams so I have no clue.

Not to mention that basketball is almost entirely rhythmic. I've only seen a few post game shows but I did notice a subtle jab from Willie a few weeks back where they faced the Wolves I think and he talked about how they only play 8 guys so they are constantly in rhythm. It was about as pointed as you can get.

Bogi kind of getting short end of stick being played at the 3 a lot this year. I mean he can play it in spurts but he is a natural SG. Being guarded and having to guard 6'8 long wings is a tough ask.

Team is just so damn mentally feeble. Really question my judgment giving them so much time and money. Joerger should be on alert. For real and you know it is so out of character for me to criticize him - but he needs to knock some heads in that locker room. Because this is some bullcrap

What is that sound made when the last Joerger supporter exhales his last despairing breath, gurgling and choking on his own blood ??? There’s some word for it ... I just made that sound

No question it's a tough, if not impossible spot for him to be in, but a coach grasping at the straws of self preservation will just stall the whole franchise in the end. The ball is in Vlades court now and there are plenty of fixes that don't involve firing the coach if they are willing to change course with the program.

So many things here. The real issue here is that the focus should be on the youthful roster and should have been from day 1. You'll notice just as many high teen minus numbers in the box score next to the veterans as anyone else.
Typical Kangz.


I think when Joerger and Vlade talked about being on the same page, what they meant is that they agreed to lie to the media about being on the same page.

As far as vets vs youth. Rebuild vs playoffs..... who knows.

One thing I do find inexcusable are these Buddy as a decoy games. What team finds 4 shots in a game for their most talented scorer while using him to spread the floor instead of running that same successful quick screen and pop play they ran in the last blowout? Directionless.

So should we just move this over to the start Bog & WCS thread? Fox should "arrive" at some point this season but he is not ready yet.
