I don't see Cole when I watch Coburn.  I think Coburn is better.

Pinzon is the backup PG from what I've seen.

Agree on Coburn and Pinzon

I’m concerned about our switching man to man.  In many cases the guy who has given up primary responsibility doesn’t know who he has to box out on the shot,  thus giving up inside positioning on the shot.  I believe this is a big reason for us giving up second shots and sub par rebounding.

I agree Rehobie. It’s all part of CMA’s complex defensive system. That’s the only thing that concerns me about having him as our coach. We can’t have a situation where every year it takes the team 15 games before they begin to feel comfortable playing in his system. It’s puts us behind the 8 ball every year.

More than anything, suffocating defense is effort.   Not standing and watching a shot as it goes up, and instead putting a body on the man closest to you is paramount to not allowing second shots.    Part of that is stamina, and having guys trust the staff enough to ask for a quick blow when winded.   We have enough depth for a lot of guys to play 25 minutes and feel like they played 45.    Even in schoolyard full court, boxing out helps immensely.  Posh is the key to our defense, but basically with CMA the rule should be is that if you don't bust it on D you sit.

No only does CMA's  defensive system  take a deep bench and players with stamina, it relies on a certain level of athleticism. I'm don't believe we have too many players who have the athleticism to be highly effective in his system. And if posh is not on the floor, the system takes a real hit. So maybe some sort of adjustment to the system needs to happen, for 2 reasons:
-all the newcomers 
-not having the athletes

Your man Dunn’s defensive work in the press is missed.

Glad you said it. I would have gotten crucified for saying it lol. I also miss his ball handling, especially his bringing the ball up.

It's the  enormous turnover  in personnel that makes playing a complex system more problematic. It will be the same issue next season.  Team will lose 65-70% of their productivity. So that has to be replaced by new players learning a system they never played. That's a best case scenario if there are no surprise transfers. Makes  success this year very important.

Something I have noticed a couple times - and I really hope I’m being paranoid, but for as much as coaches/players preached “we are a family” in the preseason….I don’t know what families they have, but not seeing what I consider “family” actions. A couple times when players hit the floor after a fouls, I would expect guys to rush over to said player and help him up- haven’t seen that. 

a couple posters mentioned, at this juncture, seems more a collection of individuals than a true team.

this clip SJU Twitter just posted I think speaks volumes… Joel makes a huge and1 hook shot at a critical point of the game…why is no one chest bumping him?



tell me I’m seeing something that isn’t there…
