Bud managed to mess us up a couple of times in the remaining RS games in the Bubble...
Do you remember me for posting that his coaching cost us the games ? Bud was awful in the RS Games in the bubble too.
I am not talking about players being out of shape, I am talking about his rotations, our X&Os out of time outs, just awful coaching letting opponets take the W, honestly something like quitting on the team, not in purpose but being incompetent.
Then Korver made a statement that we need step it up , cause I have seen teams fall of a cliff in situations like that...
Korver got me thinking this was a masked warning about our coaching and some players not locked in and coaching stubborness.
You can't assume a 40 year old veteran just saying that, showing the smoke and you don't believe there is a fire inside the team somewhere ... I remember Giannis being really upset and some players were cruising ...
So, I think the 1st time that really pissed off Giannis and really gave him doubts about our roster and not being able to win anything with them was our GAME 1 LOSS vs Orlando Magic .
After all the preparation and wanting to at least come out of the East ...
Giannis 34min , 31p , 12/25 FG , 3/7 3p , 17 Reb, 7 ass
Khris 31min , 14p , 4/12 FG , 2/6 3p , 6 Reb, 4 ass
Brook 30min , 5p , 2/9 FG , 0/4 3p , 4 Reb, 1 ass
Bled 28min , 15p , 5/ 11 FG 1/5 3p , 2 Reb, 5 ass
Bucks 110 - Magic 122 L
I mean if I were Giannis this would be one of the most disappointing moments, thinking like "my teammates are not going to help win anything". So I think even winning this series 4-1 , the damage was done, from the Ls in the RS Bubble Games and the Loss from Magic. The team never really played well in the Bubble. The confidence was lost right there and the chemistry was never the same after the Ls colllected in the RS Games in the bubble.
edit: I mean on a Championship level Team ... some games we should still get the W even with Giannis having a really bad day,
no the Bucks as constructed ... its like Giannis is not allowed to have a day off, and his teammates win it for him, like they have his back, no never , current Bucks in order to win games need Giannis on 100% or on God Mode and sometimes that is not enough. I bet this team can't even rebound without Giannis. And on top of that I see Bucks fans... for crying out loud , Giannis needs to make midrange jumpers and have a go to move , Giannis needs to this and that, thats all bs , Giannis needs a better coach and a better roster around him.
My draft picks: '15 Jerian Grant, '16 Thon Maker, '17 Isaiah Hartenstein/Semi Ojeleye/*John Collins, '18 Trade down Devonte Graham/Elie Okobo, Hamidou Diallo, buy a 2nd for Kostas
