This dribble handoff nonsense isn't it when playoffs come around.
Just curious, what other offense do you suggest we run with the current cast of players?
More of an open flow motion offense.
Because of Bams lack of shooting, it’s tough having him involved in every dribble handoff. I’d leave bam in the short corner and run Jimmy through the dribble handoffs if necessary.
However the way the bucks are playing screens we need to slip back door more
Then you are just diminishing Bam to a slasher or cutter. You have to maximize a player's skillset. Bam is good at initiating the offense, doing DHO and attacking the basket off the dribble. It worked last year and it worked during the regular season this year. We just hit the wall against a great defensive team with length. Now Bam has some homework for this summer to get better. But why change the whole concept of his role on the offense when it has worked? Let's not be prisoners' of the moment. This whole Heat squad sucked offensively in this series.
The problem I see is talent. Herro has not play up-to-par, Dragic has aged, Iguodala has aged, Ariza is just an older role player that should be playing off the bench, not starting and Butler is just plain tired and needs another scoring partner. It's been a long 9 months for several of these players with no off-season to work on new kinks.
Before we go and try to send Bam to the corner next season, I think we ought to improve the talent around our best players. This team needs a scorer and a PF with size who can bang down low on defense and stretch the court on offense (Ibaka? Collin? Portis?). Those should be our target changes on the starting lineup. Then build the bench from there. Let's see what is out there
