In Response to Re: Doc
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Doc : Of course Doc has figured in some losses. But I fail to see how anyone could pin Sunday night's loss on him. Again, they couldn't throw it in the ocean or guard a corpse on defense in the first quarter. Kind of hard to spot a team a 17-point lead after 10 minutes on the road and expect to win.

This is always a grey area...
Id agree poor shooting was the biggest culprit in the loss, cant blame Doc for that. Next in line was the team just didnt seem ready to hustle or even attempt to run their offense correctly.. Doc takes some of the heat for that.
Also, while the Hawks were opening up a big 1st qtr lead, I was wondering (and even posted) why Doc hasnt called a TO yet. Clearly we weren't playing our game and the Hawks were running jump shooting/layup drills on us. Doc just waited til the game almost got out of hand.
Only point Im trying to make is Doc must shoulder blame when we lose if hes to accept credit when we win.
We can argue forever with both sides making valid points.
Look at our bench... Sure, we have injuries like we always do...but I cant blame Sasha or the rest for not performing when they pretty much rotted on the bench all season cause Doc just wont play them and intergrate them in game situations. Now we expect production?? I blame Doc for this... plus theres no team that has had the list of injuries like the Celts the past 3 years... old players, injuries have to be game planned into the season with the C's..
Now, you can blame Sasha et al or you can blame Doc for not preparing them when he could have during the season... many have differing opinions on it I guess
