@sammasaaron @Ya Mudda Brooks and JVG switching spots would be cool. Would be hilarious if Brooks loses his filter the way JVG has and just goes in on the league every game.

@L0rv @thunder_mike I don't know that KD honestly is making Presti keep Brooks. He might give his blessing, but it's a loongg season. If it doesn't go well, or even just ends badly, KD might look back at what could have been, and just peace out. Brooks + familiar pieces might be an extra piece of KD insurance.

Really tough year to make this decision. Winning a championship requires skill but also a ton of luck. Also being the last year of KD's contract, we think there are better coaches than Brooks, but man, that coach only has one year to prove it, and the bar is championship or bust. That's pretty insane.


Edit: We should've pulled the trigger last year.

@OKCSpain @L0rv @Durantacula (The Masked Maniac) So if you build a defense around the other-worldly athleticism of 4 guys, isn't that just horrible planning? Good defense isn't predicated on being able to jump higher than everyone. A good defense is built on timing and sound rotations. This team doesn't have any of that.

@L0rv @Brussell Sproutbrook @thunder_mike Our team constantly helps when they don't have to, double teams people that don't need it, and gets killed on PnR. That's called bad coaching. Having a block-machine is a bandaid.

@J__B I at least like the double screen on top. They actually had some setup plays to move the ball and get people in position before giving it back to DJ and Russell. Like I said, not rocket science, but at least made defenses have to watch other players.

@L0rv @thunder_mike Disagree. Serge has made him look fantastic. When Serge is out, we get lit the hell up.

I honestly feel like Brooks did a good job this year. We actually did run a set offense. It wasn't the Triangle, but I think it's just enough to keep defenses from being able to triple-team KD and Russ.


The problem is that Brooks doesn't seem to coach defense. A lot of over helping and bad rotations, relying on ridiculous athleticism (Serge) to make up the lack of IQ. He just says to give great effort, but good defense is just as mental as it is physical.

@Webster81 @ǝnlɐʌ ɟo ʇol ɐ pɐɥ ʞɹǝd I think our team has enough offensive IQ to make it happen without an offensive minded coach. Brooks' defensive coaching is total garbage. Every time I watch our perimeter defenders sag to the free-throw line and give up a cross court pass and open shot, I throw up in my mouth.

@propsizzle @John Calipari & 'Dem Boys *Formerly Tvaddic* The problem with Lamb is that he's a ghost on defense. Like he gives good effort and tries to hustle, but people just shoot over him like he's not even there. It's sad, but I can see why Brooks doesn't play him

I haven't been to a game, but I feel like Dion probably goes like 0-10 during pre-game warm ups. He can't make shots without a hand in his face.

Wow, curveball? Weird that Royce would parallel this to the Harden deal. The only similarity is the timing. Talent, attitude, and player relationships are on different planets. Reggie did this whole thing basically to himself.

@L0rv @propsizzle I kinda have no faith in Dion's ability to finish at the rim. It always looks like the ball accidentally drops in.

@Durants Shimmy Yes because of prime Westbrook and KD (and probably Ibaka) and our deepest bench

Highlights are small sample size but Kanter seems to have really soft hands. If anything he might be our only big man that can catch Russ's lightning passes

@mattchant @thunder_mike It's happened before. Attitude trumps talent. I know you don't think that it does because you think Reggie is some career mastermind, but this dumbass is just burning his money. He's willing to step away from a championship run because he doesn't have a position he doesn't even deserve. You can't succeed with people like that on your team.
