    Safe to say, he's not going to be back next season.
    We have Bev and Lin and we put Parsons on Lillard.

    I can't believe this.

    That was dumb. It bit us in the ass multiple times during the regular season. Bye McHale.

    Why the hell would McHale put Parsons on Lillard. The only 2 guys that can come close to keeping up are Lin and Beverly.

    I wouldn't blame Mchale. Parsons was no where near Lillard. I don't care how slow footed you are, you can't let him get that wide open in that situation. Just smh. That just happened. A defensive meltdown of epic proportions.

    that was just baffling. Lin had Lillard on lockdown late in the game, and Mchale went and did this? wtf is Mchale's logic?

    McHale also pulled Lin out instead of Harden on a defensive possession.

    Parsons' defense sucks. The only one who doesn't see it is McHale.

    If you watched the highlights, Bev was on LIliard first. Then Parsons called for the switch.

    I think they wanted height on there to deny him the ball. But Parsons fell asleep defensively.

    Dumbest switch of the year! Damn you Parsons.

    It's all on Parsons! Don't blame it on McHale. Bev was on Lilliard and Parsons told Bev to switch before the ball was inbounded!

    Lin basically played lockdown Defense on lillard for most of the fourth...and hes the fastest player on the team. Why didn't he have Lin in sticking Lillard???

    This team is always ****ed up when it comes to inbound defensive strategy. I think it's the coach fault...It seems they don't practice helping....**** this shyt.

    that's why he is Mcfail. he believe by playing harder a 6'9 can catch up with a 6'1.
    not only on coaching, he need his high school knowledge checked and you know what, he even may fail HSC.
