Our offense is trash right now.
I thought Luke would model it off Kerr's offense with less PnR and more off ball movement.
Instead I've been seeing too much PnR, too much isos, and too much standing around in general.
Screens and off-ball movement are the foundation of this offense. The guys are in position, they just aren't executing. This offense hums when a guard gets free and he has a head of steam going towards the basket. The entire D has to react or give up an open shot or layup. Once that happens a few times, all of the passing and cutting lanes open up so the entire team becomes a threat. I keep trying to get you guys to understand that.
This offense needs unselfish players who want to play the right way. That means sacrificing a lot of "me-ball" to do the little things like set 2 or 3 off-ball screens in a row or cut hard along the baseline as a decoy to clear-out a sidebar a slip-screen and roll.
The P&R you've been seeing is happening because there are guys who settle for the first thing that comes their way, low-hanging fruit. If they keep the ball moving, it will find the open man, which hasn't been happening a lot.
I'm not an expert on this offense but it's not hard to see where it's breaking down. Until this entire team gets on the same page and plays for each other, this offense will never get off the ground. Not sure that's completely on the coach. We need time to jettison some of the players that don't fit and bring in some guys that do.
