  • Published: 07 May 2018
  • Coach Nick shows you how both these teams are attacking in the offense, and why the Cleveland Cavaliers seem to have a much better understanding of who to attack on the Raptors defense.

                  Dwayne Casey’s bum ass deserved to get fired, and DeMar should have gotten traded.

                      *Lebron James* - the only player who can get a coach fired from destroying the opposing team one year then do the same to his own team

                          I think this is what separates LeBron from any other player that has been in the league. He has done all of this with rookie coaches all his career, to say the least, the benefit of having a Hall of Fame coach like so many others. Come on guys, not even having the benefit to learn from an Elite College coach like Coach K, Smith, Stevens or Calipari just to mention a few. That to me is ridiculous.

                                Never seen a franchise so mentally owned by one player. Compliments to Lebron, he really did dominate the East.

                                    Lol even when Lebron is on the Lakers you see this Lebron system in place too which isn’t even any movement other than a smaller guard coming in to switch with a screen, Lebron drives to the basket, score a layup or if the weak side comes to help just pass from the post out to a 3 point shooter and repeat. Nothing special but now we see it hurt the Lakers chances to make the playoffs so far with the young core looking lost when Lebron isn’t out there.

                                                          I honestly believe Dwane Casey had gambling debts or something to pay off because the semi-finals reeked of sabotage. DeRozan played like trash, but Casey kept taking the players with the hot hand out and kept the iced ones in. It was fucking suspicious, ESPECIALLY towards the end of games 1 and 3.

They shot lights out this series and played the best defense they played all year against us. Seriously only looks like they give a shit when they play us then they go to the next round and started playing like the retards in the series before. I'm just glad Cleveland is gonna be garbage for now on.

I've been coaching for over a decade (with a high winning %) and have noticed many coaches struggle with this aspect of the game. Your players will always reflect the coach. As always, I love this conversation.

He is well versed globally in Coaching which is ALWAYS a good thing as you're able to bring in different philosophies... And that coaching staff he built... Sergio Scariolo... I know he will also bring a wealth of knowledge.
