    Can analytics measure the effectiveness of the coaching staff (more than just wins/losses) just like they do for players?

    Do you think that if we agitate hard enough for McHale to be fired, that his name might change from "Coach McHale" to "Embattled Coach McHale"?

    Because I like that name a lot better. I think it'd do wonders for us as a team, you know, coming together around such an embattled coach like that. That's the whole reason I'm in this campaign after all.

    Fire McHale. Bump.

    While we're at it. We should hire D'Antoni to coach O. Can a team hire two head coaches? or a two-head coach?

    Yes. Morey has done analysis. And the short answer he gave was that fans severely overrate the position.

    Our team has flaws, we need better complimentary pieces.

    Parsons wasn't going to play that many minutes had it not been for Garcia's blood not being contained. Parsons went to the bench early to call it a night, you guys are too hard on mchale.

    What do you want Mchale to do, go to the line and shoot the free throws for Dwight himself? He can't take him out of the game because Asik is not playing.

    Suns lost to the Knicks, fire Hornacek.

    Spurs almost lost to the Pelicans, fire Popovich for *almost* losing. That's what we do now right?

    Bulls lost to the Wizards, injuries or not, no excuses for this fan base, they should fire Thibs.

    Jazz beat the Nuggets, Shaw has lost Miller and many games, time to fire him.

    By CF's logic of nightly nitpicking even after wins, do any coaches actually deserve their job?

    LOLLLLL what's he gonna do? Break his legs if he doesn't hit free throws?

    DH12 has been the most consistent player this year and a super awesome teammate. What is there to hold him accountable for exactly?

    McHale is doing the right thing by keeping Dwight in the game, not panicking during hack-a-dwight, letting the big fella play through and carry the team home down the stretch.

    having confidence in your superstar & defensive anchor IS the right thing to do

    LOL at these noobs wanting to sub out D12 or hold him accountable

    You should hold ALL your players accountable. However, to sub out D12 in that situation would be a very bad move.

    He is already not great at shooting free throws. It's a mental/confidence issue and we know this. So what so you do to a guy like that? You sub him out and shatter what little confidence he has managed to build up? You want him to go back to hitting 2/15 free throws or something? You need to keep building his confidence and get him ready for the playoffs.

    Also the problem wasn't Dwight missing his free throws. He made enough down the stretch to get some points. The problem was our terrible PnR defense, that allowed Bayliss to score seconds later and then they can foul him again. A bigger problem was the refereeing. The Celtics were setting pics with moving screens, and the refs were letting them do it. Hell they we're resorting to football style tackles without getting whistled.

    I'm the last person you'd expect to see defending Mchale, but he did absolutely the right thing leaving Dwight in, in that situation. It's good man management and understanding of your player.
