Hornets Creative Offense



Have to scroll down a bit, it's a long article

LINK

quote:

23. Ryan Anderson and Monty Williams

There have been rumblings from frustrated New Orleans fans that Williams is an uncreative playcaller. I don’t see it. I mean, you try cramming this much stuff into one 24-second possession:

quote:

But a lot of Williams’s best sets center on Anderson as either a gravity-radiating decoy or a surprise spot-up shooter who comes open after some unpredictable screening action both on and off the ball. It can be as simple as stationing Anderson on the weak side of a pick-and-roll, so that his defender is the lead help defender on the “roll” man, and having Anderson “lift” up toward midcourt as that big man rolls to the rim. Good luck to Anderson’s defender navigating this choice, with Anderson here on the right wing/weak side:

I've said for a long time that Monty has some great half court sets. As AD continued to improve in his role as a pick and roll/pop guy, our sets actually became much better.

I still think he needs to just watch film of Popovich's out of bounds plays and come pretty close to copying them.

And learn when to call a time out to stop the opponents run.

I know that's not directly associated with offense, but that frustrates the hell outta me.

Granted he had CP3 running the team, but rotations and minutes are the main complaints I remember from Monty's first and only season with a playoff caliber team. And I remember quite a few games that were won at the end off of inbounds plays, both on offense and defense. Do you remember having any problems with his strategies back then?

To be honest, I don't remember any of those games. (Remember, I'm in my 40's )

To be fair, I did give Monty a lot of credit for last years team playing their asses off at the end of the season.

Phil Jackson would do this all the time. he was a firm believer in "letting the players figure it out." of course it's easier to pull that off with MJ, Pippen, Kobe, Shaq etc as opposed to Rivers, 19 yo Davis, Vasquez, and Aminu.

another Monty link- focused on the Gordon blowup

LINK

quote:

He’s widely considered one of the rising stars in the league, as far as coaches are concerned. His teams don’t just compete every night; they battle. While his rotations and late game strategy may be points of concern, it’s crucial to remember that this is only his second [edit- third] year as a head coach. NBA TV’s broadcast of the Hornets’ training camp gave us a glimpse into what sort of coach Williams is outside of games. After walking his team through their defensive and offensive sets, Williams gathered his team at midcourt. He talked to them about the importance of professionalism, both on and off the court, of taking an interest in the league beyond how they get paid, of being involved with the union. Williams, not that far removed from his own playing days, was able to relate to his players on a personal level.


quote:

hen one of his players gets injured, and the other side of Monty Williams rears its head. When Anthony Davis missed a few games due to a concussion, Williams bemoaned the softening of the league, using all of the trite and tired clichés that no longer have any place in today’s game. His relationship with Gordon, especially this season, has been anything but harmonious. During Gordon’s extended absence, Williams came just short of accusing his star guard of exaggerating the extent of his pain. The coach that once seemed caring now comes off as unsympathetic, if not dismissive.

Legitimate concern

what we saw too much was a shitty floater instead of open perimeter guys getting ball.(tunnel vision) guys were showing displeasure in this as soon as the float job failed. you could see the WTF in their faces.
