I never said Steph sucks at defense. He did at 25 years old, but then the Warriors built an amazing team of defenders around him. Over time, Steph has evolved into a solid defender while still being surrounded by an amazing team of defenders.

I don't see Donovan as being any better or worse at defense than Steph. This year was a struggle for EVERYBODY especially come playoff time.

Our system sucks. Our front office sucks. And that sucks for Rudy AND Don.

How can you say Donovan isn’t worse at defense than Steph lmao. Donovan doesn’t even put in any effort.

I'm not talking about at this point in time. I'm talking about what they can do. Like I said, Steph Curry was terrible at the stage Donovan is at now. And Steph Curry isn't good now. He's passable due to an amazing set of teammates.

If you put Donovan on that GS team, he has comparable stats to Steph. Hell, he might have better. Our perimeter defensive options are that terrible and GS is that good.

It’s coaching. I mean I love what Quin has done for our franchise, however it’s plain to see he no more pull. I think the players see the problem with the system, but the system hasn’t changed. It’s not so much needing a stretch 5 as it is allowing Rudy room to and opportunity to be an offensive presence. I remember in a couple post annual interviews he said he wanted to do more for the team. I think Quinn has restricted his job to just being a defensive monster. I think he can do both, but he needs the greenlight. I also think Dondon stopped trying on defense to show Quin how funneling everything to Gobert has flaws. Any elite shooting team with good ball movement will move right passed is in playoffs. Why even fight to get there? If it’s true star dominate teams win playoffs, then you gotta let Rudy do what he wants. Don too. Quin wont let his system go, or even alter. Outdated and old. Hate to say it, because I like quin. The stories and memes. I think he is a top coach in the league, just not for the Jazz anymore. We’ve outgrown him. Time to cut the cord

Good post. Solid theories. Makes a lot of sense if true.
