My Back Court Suggestions

I'd like to focus primarily on 2 guys - Sundiata Gaines and Wes Johnson.  As Karl Marx once said,

“History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.”

This quote can be used in many aspects of life, including basketball.  In this case with our point guard position.  Rambis is asking the SAME point guards to do the SAME thing night after night.  We are getting the SAME results on a consistently inconsistent basis.  Turnovers, terrible defense, below average shooting and scoring, no threat of penetration.  Lonny Flynour just isn't cutting the mustard.  But yet Rambis keeps pulling the string on the back of the doll thinking something different will happen.  Now if we were in a race for the 8th playoff seed I may tend to cut him some slack, but where not.  It's time for a heapin' helpin' of Sundiata Gaines.  Say it with me.  Sun-Di-Ah-Ta.  Sun-Di-Ah-Ta.  Is he the answer?  Probably not.  But he can't be any worse than Flynour.  But he could be better.  We may never know, as Rambis is one stubborn SOB.  Secondly, Wes Johnson. I can see the potential.  I've watched him his whole career, all the way back when he was a cyclone.  I can't pretend to know how Rambis runs his practices or tries to develop his players' skills.  Here's how we do it though.  For several practices in a row, you FORCE a player to focus on only one thing in scrimmage situations.  You don't tell the rest of the team what's going on.  You keep that a secret.  Rambis needs to tell Wes, in scrimmage situations, to drive the ball as deeply into the paint as he can on EVERY possession.  In fact demand it or punish him with heavy doses of cardio or singing in front of the vets or whatever else is necessary.  It won't be pretty at first, but once he gets that mind set, it will improve.  Then if that starts to translate to games, go to the next thing that I think Wes should work on - posting up.  Here's a 2 guard that is 6-7 with a huge wing span that can jump out of the gym.  I wonder if Rambis even knows that you can post up a guard.  Probably not - it doesn't fit the triangle is probably what he'd say.  Another reason he needs to be kicked out the door.  Anyways, had to get that off my chest.  Happy holidays all....
