So far Carlisle has pushed the right buttons. We've all been disappointed recently but they've got a bunch of home games coming up. Let's hold the trade starters panic for a month.

I’m starting to like Torrey Craig’s fit more and he actually seems to be picking up the offense. LeVert on the other hand really looks like he doesn’t understand his roles in how to keep the offense moving so the team benefits.

Quinn's comments on LeVert are interesting. He suggests keeping him on the weak side so he can "play his game." I hope Carlisle pulls him when he doesn't play Rick's game.

Yes the way he’s playing I would rather start Martin for his defense and have LeVert on the second unit running with McConnell. Maybe he could get some layups.

That might be the best role for LeVert, being part of the second unit

I wonder if he's ever been coached hard. Quinn said it on TV but the way he's used to playing isn't working. I'd start him but have the big hook ready. Sitting is a teacher.

He played under Beilein at Michigan. He’s been coached hard. And he sat much of his nba career, too.

Yes

If there was one thing that Bjorkgren got right, it was allowing Domas to play his game

Finally got to watch last night’s game just now, and wow. What a difference in effort. Guys were moving with purpose, and really getting after it. It was really great to see.

Also, on a bit of a lesser note, can we recognize how good Goga has been playing lately? Even if the stats don’t seem to show it, he’s getting after loose balls, directing rebounds to teammates even if he doesn’t get them, making good passes and just scrapping around for the ball. It’s really good to see.

…and, Torrey Craig has been a really good signing thus far.

I think Goga is ready for a bigger role, something like 20 mpg
