I still think it was an overreaction to a terrible first game against a smooth veteran team. Lauris best play was with a big center, Robin Lopez, that allowed him to crash the boards and attack closeouts. I also like Thad better as the hub center of the second unit, and which has playmaking is badly needed.
Changing the starting unit so quickly seemed like a shortsighted, panic move, particularly when you compare it to the amount of leash that was given to White with the first unit.
Maybe they should have given it more time. Maybe they’ll give it another look this season. But it’s hard to be too critical considering that the team played better after the switch.
It was definitely not a good move for Lauri. But for the team as a whole? What’s the argument that it was a step back on the court?
We're 0-3 since the switch.
That’s superficial analysis. Unless you are a fervent believer in the “Record with Lauri vs. Record without Lauri” argument. Which I assume you are not.
We were also 0-3 prior to the switch against weaker competition. So what is your point?
If we’ve been worse as a basketball team since the switch, explain how. Especially considering our margin of defeat in the 3 games prior was 19 and since it’s been 8.
But if there is another way of looking at it, please share.
