I really think we have an Issue with on court leadership. No one has been here long enough to be a force on court and in the locker room.
Agreed. Been saying that for about a week or so now. It's evident that no one knows who to follow.
It should be Anthony Davis, but he is only a second year player and the Big 3 guards are all just a few years older and are accomplished enough in their own right that it probably chafes them to not be "the guy". It's not toxic by any stretch, but all of these guys have had "franchise player" talk around them before. It will take a lot of pride swallowing and true desire to make the other guys succeed for the guards to gel. Sure these guys are friends and know each other from the AAU days, but all of three of them will have to individually accept that there are things that the other guy does better.
They must buy into there roles and to an extent, a great coach inspires them to do so, but true motivation comes from within. Personally, I'd like to see Holiday off the ball more, maybe playing along side Rivers.
The Rivers-Gordon-Holiday line-up hasn't played much together, nor has the Evans-Gordon-Holiday line-up.
I don't see why George Karl would not want to come here.
for the exact reasons. Leadership. Karl's rotations in Denver were often despised by fans. He's is a good X's and O's guy, but at this point
I'd think Karl would holdout for a contender to coach for. (Read:when OKC finally pulls the plug on Scotty Brooks).
