Wizards are getting smoked, but you have to give it up for a masterful coaching performance by Doc Rivers. Many people overhype coaching. Coaching isn't going to turn this version of the 76ers into champions. But in a game where talent is even, Doc Rivers is showing you what great coaching can do. At every part of the game, they have attacked the Wizard's weaknesses. When we went to the zone, he diagrammed wide open 3's for Kormaz. When we have Ish in the game, he wins the low screen with Curry and Tobias, forcing the switch. He attacked Neto. He ran the offense through Maxey. He trapped Beal. He has completely collapsed the defense onto Beal because we lack 3-point shooting. He has started to leave Westbrook wide open.

This roster needs a drastic overhaul. We need 3-point shooting. We need bigger defenders on the wing. And we need our young players to improve.

Yah but who takes the job? Not sure anyone any better than Brooks takes the job. So. same results different coach upcoming


There are a lot of guys better than Brooks out there. I bet they go Wes Unseld Jr. or something like that. But anybody but Brooks at this point whose act has grown tiresome.

Who takes the job? They wasted $35 million on Brooks for five years. I think a lot of people would take that.

I think people underestimated just how badly using Bertans would impact this offense. In game 2 and 3 we were 10 for 56 from 3. And that was with Bertans. Now they are loading up on Beal and completely taking inside shots.

Pathetic performance in the second half. Not all on Brooks. Beal and Westbrook needed to lead this team and they disappeared when it mattered. They put up numbers, but they were hollow.

Playoff Westbrook ended up being a real thing, does anyone see him leading a team deep into the playoffs at this point of his career.

I disagree. No one elite takes the job. Similar to no elite free agent comes to DC

Depends on which Bertans would show up.

This. 100%. Beal’s performance on D has been pathetic

I think Beal and the organization need to take some time and decide if we should move forward with Beal. My opinon has always been the same if Beal wants to stay, I'm for building around him. If he wants to leave, I'm for trading him and rebuilding.

I didn't say elite. You want to keep Scott Brooks? How do you know a Sam Cassell or a Wes Unseld Jr. might be a very good coach if they were given the chance? I don't know what you mean by elite. There are how many elite coaches out there? FIve or six? Brooks is bad. On his best nights mediocre. Time for a change and I don't care if the guy is elite. We just need good. Was Nick Nurse elite? Nobody knew who the f-ck he was when he was an assistant.

There is a player who felt slighted for not making an All-Star game. I wonder if the same player feels any responsibility for a poor playoff series?

We don't win with Beal as our best player. I personally think its time to move on.

That was the best move he made all night. They had nothing left in the tank.

Remember how quickly folks buried Wall in favor of Westbrook because of Westbrook's regular season performances? I don't think Wall has ever had a series this bad.
