While I agree expectations were high for this team, I can see annoyance in using this whole year as a try out for future and not really trying to win. Let's try this line up out to see what happens can make one wonder what if we played best lineup in 4th most of time instead of some.
Month and Dell must know their job is secure for awhile to throw away a season in regards to w/l
Nothing wrong with any of this. The fact that what you laid out is not happening makes me wonder if there is another hidden item in the balance pan.
The simplest thing to posit is that his relatively quick return from the stress reaction combined with reduced minutes and performance in those minutes is that this is some compromise between him missing more time completely and risking worsening the situation there.
I have no evidence of something ljke this other than the box score and my eyes, but why would his free throw accuracy plummet? And his contact aversion, as seen in a decent drop off in getting to the line?
Just a possibility. It's frustrating regardless, agreed. The idea that they are doing a good thing, even if it tastes bad now, is appealing and may be skewing my judgment.
