Well said, I agree.
These past few seasons really enlighten how important top-down management is. A competent, synchronous FO lays down the framework for the team to successfully function.
Magic and Rob should have focused on signing shooters, one of which would have been bringing back Lopez. I also think the Randle situation could have been handled better. That's basically a year of tanking in 2014 wasted with no net return, haha.
I think Luke could have ran plays and rotations that would have made it easier to win ball games...but he didn't. Perhaps that's where having a poor assistant coaching staff comes in. Granted, I admit he wasn't given the best roster to work with (which stems back to top-down management).
Our only hope is acquiring another superstar via free agency or trade. And unfortunately we have a very short window to win it all.
As I stated before signing Bron, I dont think he ever wins another title.
This team is a mess. One offseason isn't going to fix this imo. That's another year of Bron wasted. If a trade or signing doesn't happen in the offseason, we will see the same rumors that killed the chemistry this year happen again.
Too many great teams with good chemistry at the top right now.
If prime Bron and Wade didn't win it their first year, I'm not sure what we can expect even with a big name free agent.
Before this season, I was all for going all in and trading the youth. However, with the front office being a mess, the roster being a mess, Bron a year older, and a brand new coach we may want to just ride out Bron's last seasons and keep the young guys.
