We could have used Jeff Green. I question Quin’s ability to adapt and think outside of the box.
Quite the opposite.Lord Dummy,
Yes our FO has botched things so badly it netted us the 1 seed.
He was featured in every single game during his time here and averaged 17min a night. That's more minutes played than Niang, Thomas, Morgan, Oni on a nightly basis so i'm not sure if it's Quin who doesn't want him here. But we definitely should've kept him on the team over the likes of Niang/Oni/Brantley just for his playoff experiences. But for a FO who's actively dumping their second round picks and other assets just to offload some salary, what else do you expect?We could have used Jeff Green. I question Quin’s ability to adapt and think outside of the box.
Ersan thoughQuin is in an impossible situation because of a combination of injuries and roster construction. He has no one to throw out there. He is left to choose between playing Miye Oni and Niang minutes and completely running the starters into the ground, resulting in dead Don. Quin is riding the system, because he has a roster that is constructed and capable of only doing that very thing.
People mention “adjustments.” What adjustments should he make? Had we had two more playable guys on the bench (say Desmond Bane or Torrey Craig), Quin could have tried some things.
You can’t make any conclusions about Quin’s coaching from this series due to roster construction and the compounding effect of injuries. Just isn’t fair.
This is all on bad luck with injuries and DL and Zanik. Period. You could make an argument that the injury issues are also partially on DL and Zanik, because Conley is an aging PG and was already a known injury risk when he was brought in.
Heads must roll, but not Quin’s.
Besides that Lakers game when they rested Lerbon/AD, Ersan hasn't done much to show us that he's still a NBA player. He averaged 7.1 fouls per 36 minutes, compared to 4.2 fouls committed by Oni. He won't survive past 5 minutes against the likes of Morris or Zubac.
It will change since there will be a proper off season this year unlike last season and a more regular season schedule unlike the condensed one this year. But, yes we should load manage a lot for players and durable players are preferred, but it's impossible to know who will actually be not injured next year.next season we should load manage everybody to the Max. If sitting players every other game is allowed, do it! Don't care about 1 seed. Sign durable players. Hire the best medical team. NBA only cares about revenues and it won't change next year anyway.
Game 1 & 2Oh please. An unhealthy Mitchell and no Conley means we have no offensive stars. They still have PG. that gives them an edge. An unhealthy Donovan is not a star. He can barely jump. Based on this logic frank Vogel was outcoached. Mike Malone was out coached. No, their teams were not healthy. You can only make so much noise in the playoffs with your role players.
It's something to try though. What we have been doing isn't working. And he wouldn't foul out just playing niangs minutes. Niang is only playing like 10 really really horrible minutes per game.Besides that Lakers game when they rested Lerbon/AD, Ersan hasn't done much to show us that he's still a NBA player.
