The players like him (n two different variations of the roster), he's a good strategist, and he'll hold guys accountable.
Couldn't disagree more.
Also, if you dont want to believe me, which is fine, here are some quotes from Jovan Buha:Stylistically, Lue’s Cleveland teams were relatively modern. He’s a more progressive coach than Rivers. He often played small-ball lineups, often with LeBron or Richard Jefferson at the four (picture Leonard or George doing so more often) and downsized the center position by going five-out with Love (imagine JaMychal Green or Marcus Morris Sr.). He even made the difficult decision to bench Love in crunch time of the playoffs in favor of the more defensively capable Tristan Thompson, while maintaining the star’s buy-in to the team’s culture.Some changes that Lue will bring to the Clippers next season include better ball movement and a faster pace, league sources said. The Clippers will experiment more on the defensive end, mixing in more zone coverages and varying pick-and-roll schemes. The younger players on the roster — Ivica Zubac, Landry Shamet, Terance Mann and Mfiondu Kabengele — will be given larger roles and more minutes. The Clippers plan to stagger Leonard and George’s minutes more, as well as testing out different role players around them to see what lineup combinations work best.
Came here to post this. Reading that last paragraph made me realize just how stagnant things had gotten under Doc.
At the very least, he will try out stuff for more than 2 minutes at a time before falling back to his tried and true.
