My only problems with Luke this season was taking too long to adjust. Whether it was giving Kuzma more minutes, taking Nance out of the starting lineup or just taking away Ennis' minutes in general.

 

At this point though I think he's made all the right moves.....eventually. 

 

What will be interesting to see is if he keeps Hart in the starting lineup over KCP when Lonzo comes back.

 

Personally I'd rather we start Hart, especially if we don't think we're keeping KCP for the long term.

This trash coach couldn't close out Minny.

 

How is he going to be able to run a team with LBJ and PG. If you think what LBJ did to Blatt and Lue is bad, wait till he gets his hands on Puke.

Coaches don’t play the players lost that game very inexperienced and w/o a leader! Luke hasn’t been perfect but not as bad as some of are portraying!

STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH: WE DON'T HAVE A HALFCOURT OFFENSE PEOPLE

 

 

If you and Lonzo are sharing point guard duties when he comes back, how would you envision that working?

 
Ingram: At the point guard position we basically do the same thing. I may be more aggressive to the rim sometimes, but at the point guard position, we're both just pushing the pace. Trying to push the fast break, rebound the ball and try to push it. We don't really have offense where we try to get in half-court sets. We just try to push the ball. If he's running the wing, I can kick it ahead to him. If I'm running the wing, he can do it for me. It'll work out. Even if the coaches don't tell us to run point guard, we'll probably do it anyway.
 
We only run transition offense for less 20% of the game! So 80% of the time we're not doing anything!

Mavs are openly tanking. Still need to fire the guy and bring in a real coach who can handle PG and LBJ

Still think he should be fired and do you still think Byron would be a better option since he runs the "princeton" offense

Commendable, but he should be fired regardless.

I like to dip my feet in toilet water & smell them.
