Obviously, there isn't a sure-fire coach like a Brad Stevens, Steve Kerr, etc. There are a bunch of interesting candidates though like:Everyone knew Lavine was sub par defensively. I think Dunn coming back from his personal leave will help ease that a bit. But as much instant offense Parker and Lavine can provide, they need to stagger the time they share on the floor.
I mean, defensively... this team has been a dumpster fire as predicted. I've liked seeing Lavine look for higher percentage shots. Some can be attributed to growing pains, the other to Hoiberg just not being a very good coach. It feels like he doesn't have the ability to motivate the guys to keep their foot on the gas or to play with sustained intensity. Honestly, I don't know who the answer would be as coach if Hoiberg gets axed.
Valentine is already 500x the PG that Cam Payne is. Totally down with this strategy.I said this like 20 times. Valentine needs to be developed into a POINT GUARD. The way the league works, he doesn't need to play and cover PGs, he just needs these shitty PGs to run plays through him while they become the teams safety on defense and a 2nd option for breaking up traps. Valentine would make a solid half court general, which then makes him a massive upgrade.
Cam Payne no longer needs to keep track of weakside picks and Zach no longer needs to create everything. Now you cover and spread the floor while keeping DZ in positions to knock down that three when he is feeling it.
