How so? Dunleavy is a good shooter who can make plays happen. He'd be a great point-forward if taught properly.Originally posted by <b>SKLB54</b>!
But Caron would fit better in Golden State than Dunleavy does. Then again, that can be changed with a quick swift coaching change.
Musselman is a good coach. But for the Warriors? No. I agree Dunleavy is one of my favorite prospects because of his point-forward skills. But... Musselman doesnt want a point forward, he barely wants a point guard. The ideal PG in Musselman's mind is a 2 who has some sort of passing/point guard skills. Enter Gilbert Arenas, Enter Speedy Claxton. Exit Mike Dunleavy Jr., the pure passer and shooter that should be leading this team.How so? Dunleavy is a good shooter who can make plays happen.

NVE was a pure point, up until 2000, but IMO, not anymore. Now, I doubt that he is a PG that wants to lead the league in assists, and not points. Speedy's lack of passing skills is apparent, look at his career with the 76ers. He was cut because Larry Brown thought that he didnt distribute the ball well.You know, NVE is as 'pure' a point guard as anybody in this league.
I agree, he'd immediatly be signed by a team in the East, where his kind of play would work better and he would win. Just IMO, as the coach of the Warriors, he is not in the right situation.Firing Musselman would be a mistake. He would go to another team and win.
NVE is still a pure point, IMO. He looked to distribute the ball evenly in his few games with the Warriors. Speedy was never a good distributor, but Muss obviously has no choice. Do you think getting no PG is Muss's problem? Do you think playing Arenas and Speedy were simply because Muss don't like pure point, ignoring the fact that there wasn't really a 'pure' point eligible? Those were my point. It wasn't Muss's fault that the Warriors never had a pure point recently.Originally posted by <b>SKLB54</b>!

Here's the catch: What direction the management is heading to? I see confusions all over the Warriors' hierachy. From management to the casual fans. Some said win now; some said future is more important; some wanted both. But who's really the MAN that makes the decision behind close door? If the goal is not clear, how could we know if you should fired Mussleman? I agreed Mussleman has his weaknesses, as does every coaches. But coaches need the right personnel to cover up his weaknesses, or explore his strength. I don't believe Muss has anything to do with who the team acquired recently. He had a good season last year because the team commited to one goal - rebuild, part because there wasn't any choice. This year? Personnel changed, Muss is still there. He couldn't bring out what's the best on current group. I called it the clashed of style, because Muss already proved that he can coach. I see Muss going this upcoming summer. I will not be sad because I thought it will be good for both the team and the coach. But again I can't blame Muss because of the fact that he was put under the fire. He is here this season to fail.I agree, he'd immediatly be signed by a team in the East, where his kind of play would work better and he would win.

Mind you, in order to run the tripple-post offense, you have to have right coaches. Getting similar players doesn't mean you can run those offense without correct coaching. Afterall, triangle offense is universally known as one of the most complicated offensive set in NBA. It requires a lot of movements on and off the ball. I would rather the team uses princeton offense as its based, which is what Muss used certain time.
You couldnt be any more right. Thats my big question, if Tex even wants to coach..I know Tex Winters, as I was a huge MJ fan during their dynasty-making years. This guy never looked like he wanted to coach, anyway. Jim Cleamons is a more viable option I supposed but I do not know him enough to judge his effectiveness.
It denotes respect for Cleamons as an assistant. Cleamons, however, was unable to install the triangle in Dallas and, in fact, was a tremendous failure there. He may (may...I'm not saying it's proven) not be suited to be the main coach on a team.Originally posted by <b>SKLB54</b>!
As for Cleamons effectiveness, I trust in Phil Jackson because he (Jackson) made it very clear that he wanted(/needed?) Cleamons in LA once he got there. That has to demand respect.
