Not sure I follow. Coaches.... good ones anyway, coach the players they have around the skillsets they have. You put your players in the best position to succeed. Not just sit back and wait for the FO to get the exact players you have to have to succeed. That's completely backwards. Pop changed his entire offensive and defensive schemes many times based on the players. The triangle was modified differently for Kobe/Shaq than it was for Pau/Kobe/Lamar and on and on.
Luke was hired at a time when we couldn't hire much of anyone. We had no true path to the playoffs then and it was a different front office. Not surprising he's leaving quite frankly. I wish him good luck in Sac but this team has a very narrow window to succeed and he just isn't the guy to take a team deep in the playoffs IMHO. The decision was made to roll the dice and go for it with vets in a short timeframe. Like it or not it's about LeBron and who ever we get in the offseason more than it is about the guys we have now. Not sure I like it (I have been giving it until this offseason) but it is what it is.
