    Default David Blatt

    Did not see this coming out of the preseason but this guy just might not be NBA ready. his player rotations are just ____. we are just 4 games into the season and the way he is doling out minutes is not at NBA level. tonight playing only 8 guys. this is how one coaches in the playoffs. at the rate he is going players not on IR will be too tired by the time the playoffs start. LBJ 42 min Kyrie 45 please.

    Watching the NBA for 45 plus years seen the game change but this is not a workable change.
    even the player grinder Thibodeau does not play with a short bench like this. how in the world can you find the hot hand off the bench if they don't play ?

    If he keeps going like this he will be 1< and done. i know it's early but... can anyone say John Calipari ?

    Its game 3. We're still getting used to things. I agree his rotations are a bit weird early but I think he's just trying to do things the best he can. Give it some more time. However, I will say that the Cavs could come out early with more intensity/consistency they won't have to make so many third quarter surges.

    The rest should work it self out.
    i'm not asking questions like ..........wtf kinda offense is this ? etc lol
    the big 3 should be going 35-38 minutes, unless they go cold then less. players should earn minutes every night.

    Yeah I think that injury to Delly really threw him for a loop because Delly was getting close to fifteen minutes or more a night. Having Marion at the 2 really handicapped us I think in terms of flexibility. Blatt is still trying to figure out where people fit, but I agree no one should be seeing over 40 minutes at this stage.

    Dude. It's a no brainer I think, Blatt's going to become the media villain. It's just the way it becomes, you going to criticize the team that can't be bothered to play some fucking defense? Kevin Love "finding his way"... I dont know how to read the quote from him regarding Love "It's the same offense." Does that come across like a shot to you? I think he is trying to give Love a jolt but you don't condescend your stars. I read that as condescending. Love has played below his level and both he and the Coach know it... I'd like to see a big game from him, we need one tonight versus Washington.

    Anyway. I hope it doesn't get ugly either. IMO, ESPN is a peice of shit 99% of the time but the biggest problem is the Cavs need to turn it around. Milwaukee has a better record than us... What's your take on that? Is it Coaching?

    I'm trying to support Blatt, we're losing close games to good teams. 2 points to the Spurs, 2 points to the Jazz (better than advertised but playing below their potential IMO) 9 point loss to Denver, a good team also playing below its potential and a 19 point loss to the Blazers, one of the best teams in the West, in our second game of the season. We could easily be a 7-3 team, are we still putting Blatt under a microscope at 7-3? I know it's early, BUT, these losses here and there add up.

    The Wizards a team playing some very good basketball right now, and I think they're going to be one of the teams to beat in the East. Lets see how we look tonight.

    Speaking of ESPN, I think. LeBron's insights here suggest he and Blatt have the same objective, and both understand "the process".

    Speaking of Kevin Love...


    Grantland wrote a somewhat scathing breakdown of his interior defense. Stating it is the crux of our defensive struggles. Interior D in general, but Love is significantly less effective at that end than Varejao or TT.

    Might deserve its own thread... So ill share it there.

    B/R (say what you will) wrote a very interesting write up of observations of last nights game, namely, LeBron wasn't letting Blatt in the huddle during time-outs...

    Not a good sign.

    Ill link it once i find it.

    Really tough to make a case that the team cares.

    But I demand you take back what you said about Mike Brown. I don't think it would be much different if he were still coach just not a fan at all.

    Blatt needs to reach out to LeBron. If he doesnt have LeBron's confidence then that is a sign some of your earlier predictions may have merit...

    He might not last the season... It's crazy

    David Blatt Would Love It If LeBron James Let Him Do His Job | Bleacher Report (via http://ble.ac/teamstream-) http://teamstre.am/1tahN3F

    It was from the Washington game which is why I couldn't find it. A lot of B/R is click bait but their analysis is decent IMO. A lot better then when amateurs were running the joint.

    Yeah Lebron is hard on coaches it seems...was hard on Spo from what I've read. Blatt's gonna have to stand his ground if he's to survive. I heard Windy talking about Pop letting Duncan run some huddles too...but they win so Pop's nobody cares....Blatt is not going to be afforded that...nor should he be.
