Re: bballbreakdown: What P.J. Carlesimo Is Doing Differently
Now I look back at this video, coach Nick was correct. Carlesimo really is just a mediocre coach, but he knows how to get along with players and motivate them to play at their best potential.
The Nets have benefited from easy schedules, but even with easy schedules we might have gone 7-7 with Avery Johnson rather than 12-2. The team is fighting for a coach that every player respects, the chemistry is there.
The issue is, well, the Nets still play so much iso-ball, and coach Carlesimo's mediocrity at tactics will get exposed in playoffs. Hopefully we land a few more pieces by trade deadline, if we do get Millsap we'd be pretty much guaranteed a trip to ECF.
