& Oliver... count me impressed. I've been dinging Ted, but this is evidence that I may well have been wrong. I'd be delighted if that were so!
What I’m saying. The things they’re doing they are doing with forethought and intent. Why I said take a look at who they picked up and try to guess why. Instead of racing to bd the first to be unimpressed. I’m saying there’s a shape in all the things they’re doing and I’m wondering why.
I like that Corey Gaines coached the Phoenix Mercury to a title. On the heels of that press conference where they hinted about integrated training and cross pollination between the NBA, G League, and Mystics. The idea that players will pick up inspiration and tips from all sources.
Maybe it means nothing that our WNBA stars ranged Bigs pouring it in from outside. And costarring a guard with range and dribble drive. I’m just curious if it’s something intentional. I dunno.
I think Mike Forde (the sports consultant ) is probably instrumental in making a lot of these hires seeing as Ted turned over much of the process to him.
It’s going to take a little bit of time but the groundwork is being laid for a great basketball franchise in DC.
Now I just wonder if all of these analytics guys are going to tell them when it’s time to replace Scott Brooks..
