Re: What are your team and player observations so far? Who on the team is playing better
What are your team and player observations so far?
We lack a certain level of toughness. We do not finish well. We lack focus and drive. We do not have a clear mission right now.
Who on the team is playing better than expected? (And what's better about them?)
Craig Smith. The thing that makes him better, he understands his role on the team and he goes out every night and completes his tasks, plus a little bit more.
And who has been disappointing?
Mike Miller. Clearly the 2nd best player on our team. He has a career 40% 3pt shooting mark, and he will not shoot the ball. WT? He does not want to force shots. The 2nd best player on NBA teams CANNOT shoot the ball less than 15-17 times a game!
And, how about the team as a whole, what are the key needs now that we're a month and a half into the season?
Going into the season I thought that we would be better, but clearly we are missing some pieces. We need players that are aggressive. We need defensive stoppers. We need players that want to be leaders and step up.
