Well, they'll sure try. Which players actually fit what Beilein wants to run is tbd.
If they don't quite get it, and we don't clear space; we'll see a lot of the old passing the ball around and nothing happening until someone forces up a contested shot.
Garland and Porter might just be good at that, but ... it's presumably not what we're shooting for.
I mean both Garland and KPJ are already iso threats so when the ball is moving they become even more lethal if defenders don't stay attached because of the movement. This will be esp true if Sexton is pushing the pace scoring better in the paint and still hitting long range shots at a 40% clip.I also see Windler as a more than capable ball mover and high IQ presence to help keep the offense moving and not get stifled.
Yep, that's what I hope to see too, but until we actually do ... it's hard to assume really anything.
This is where Belien (I am really going to have to learn to spell his name if I'm wrong) will have to prove his worth. We cant assume anything about this team. How will the young guys accept his system, share the ball, learn when to be aggressive/selfish and take the shot, and when to defer. How will they fit his system, and how will it fit them?
Will the returning players be willing to defer their shots if the new guys are open, or look to "get theirs" regardless of situation? In this regard I am really looking forward to see how this works. I cant remember ever having this type of situation with the Cavs, an unproven (in the NBA) rookie coach, a rebuild situation with a few proven NBA players and a bunch of young guys with some talent, all being asked to buy into a "system" that was successful in the college game.
It seems to be quite the experiment, not that I have any issue with this approach, but it will be very interesting to watch in unfold.
