Many MIN fans understand that the roster we had a year before had three serious issues:
* - shooting
* - passing, ballhandling
* - defense
The difference between Rosas and Thibs vision is...
After trade deadline our new assembled roster without any preparation and chemistry, without KAT, showed promising improvement in terms of shooting, passing and ballhandling. Ryan "plugged" new players in the same offense and they showed whether they fit. One big confirmation of alignment between strategy and tactic in our case is how new players who brought here FO, played under our coaching staff.
* - DLo is an excellent fit
* - JJ is an excellent fit
* - Beasley is an excellent fit
* - Juancho is an excellent fit
* - Vanderbilt is an excellent fit
Now lets compare with players who our previous FO brought here and how they played under HC.
* - Hill did not play
* - Aldrich did not play
* - Teague awful fit, backup PG who is paid as starter
* - Dieng is paid starter money, but could not play starter
* - Gibson was a bad fit was a good player here
* - Wiggins regressed
* - JC was a bad fit, ISO scorer
* - Rose was a badquestionable fit, ISO scorer was a good player here
* - Butler a good fit as skillset, awful fit in locker room personal opinion
It is funny because it might seem that our FO and HC under Thibs were two different persons with completely opposite vision.
Not really. It would seem that part of the FO and their main young star had different visions than Thibs the GM/HC and weren't going to allow him his vision. Sure, some questionable signings as well.
Back to our current HC...
Wait, wait, wait.
First, let's not forget about who else the current GM brought here. You skip to deadline trades as if we didn't sit through a wasted season first. A larger list. Correct me if I missed someone.
* - Treveon Graham - waste of time, terrible fit for 40 tres offense (starter - really?)
* - Shabazz Napier - decent bench pg capable of playing with other guards, showed a little better yet as sole pg in system
* - Noah Vonleh - waste of time if they weren't going to allow him the bench 5 duties of 1-3-1 and rarely did.
* - Bell (?) - was he also Rosas? Another waste of space if not willing to fit him into 1-3-1 plans. Depth bodies I guess.
* - Jarrett Culver - was dumped minutes upon, and pg duties when not ready/didn't fit him. playcreator fairytales fell thru
* - Jake Layman - interesting talent, fragile/soft, improved team while he played
* - Nowell - drafted to G league-shined-GameIQ/Range backburnered team access - 3pt shot didn't break through in NBA yet
* - Reid - G league - interesting range of talents, not as much defense or rebounding developed yet as might hope.
* - McLaughlin - G league - showed perfect system fit, showed even better as sole pg leading offense, capable of starter fill in
* - Kelan Martin - G league - showed fit in system, game IQ is there, hard on himself instead of brushing off plays
* - Allen Crabbe - reclamation attempt off trade(?) - failed
Deadline Trade Ins
* - DLo is an excellent fit Check
* - JJ is an excellent fit Check
/ Fans want to dump as trade tool
* - Beasley is an excellent fit Check
/ Fans want to 6th man or let walk instead of pay
* - Juancho is an excellent fit Check
/ many fans trying to replace
* - Vanderbilt is an excellent fit - Played 5 minutes, did nothing. No proof yet of excellent fit. Assumptions/hope
* - Jacob Evans Played 2 minutes/nothing
* - Omari Spellman never suited up for team
* - Evan Turner never suited up for team
Now that all the names are hopefully listed, and true wasted season time/fits/etc are seen. Carry on with your great descriptions of the differences in player choices/movements that show how great it's been since Thibs. Yet to be realized even if I agree and hope it's getting better at this point.
