I’m going to disagree with those that are saying it is effort on players’ part.

I see two-three guys go hard to trap one opposing player.
So hard that he then has at least two choices for open three point shots, or perhaps a teammate cutting wide open to the basket.

Effort may wane later when they realize no amount of effort will make that scheme effective, but it is there initially.

Mike teaches some decent defense.
You can see that when we just play base D and cut the trapping/switching everything nonsense.
I just don’t think he will ever give up the style that will ultimately be his undoing.
Sad, really.
Hate it because I really like Mike.

He’s coaching himself out of a job. :frowning:
