    We got our selves the New Tom Thibodeau or should I say Tom Tibbett-deau LOL


    Per Jason Quick: “As a head coach in D-League, Tibbetts team ranked No. 2 in pts allowed, 3rd in turnovers forced, 4th in steals. Blazers D last year was poor”

    Sounds Good!

    Siccolo with the puns. Nice. Let's hope he works out.

    Another Nate huh ? Ok, the last one was an alleged defensive guru. You can teach all the defensive schemes you want but its the players that have to want to execute that defense. Wesley and Batum dont need any motivation to be in your face or chase down blocks.The ones who need to buy in are going to be Meyers,Claver, and everyone else. Lets see what he's got though.
    I am a fan of our new roster playing with and for eachother.

    Well this guy has a niche for developing players so Tibbits should be good for Meyers and Claver

    I think Wes and Batum could use some help too. More Batum, Caitlin said it well that he needs to be smarter on the defensive end. Wes makes up his lack of lateral quickness with grit and heart.

    But our team was atrocious on D and since we have good defenders in Batum, Wes, and LMA a new Defensive System/Coach "should" help

    Grabbing some defensive players would hurt either ;)

    Thibbet was also an assistant with the Cavs before so he would have seen what really atrocious defense looks like after Lebron left them. I must admit I am impressed by his record in the D League and the fact that his team was good at forcing turnovers. With our young team, there's nothing better than getting breakaways from steals and long rebounds and letting them get a few dunks. 


    The Nuggets lived on fast break points after the all star break and that showed. They had confidence that at any moment they could break away and get easy buckets. Siccolo said we need defensive players. He's right. But we need our stars (LA & Dame) to commit to that side of the ball. In Miami, Lebron and Wade make a point of bothering their matchups. They play hard and smart. We need LA to be a general in the paint. Read the game and if a teammate is out of position, tell him.


    Coach Fisher of the Fab Five said there's no wrong decision. The wrong decision is not telling your teammate what he could do to be better on a particular play. Our big men must communicate.


    Im looking forward to seeing Nate put some discipline into our defenders.

    Your name is Caitlin, it's Cailin? I'm assuming that your name is Cailin.

    Haha, my bad. Must learn to proof read these comments. I meant to say my name is not Caitlin. It's Cailin...

    But that was just to clarify.


    I did some reading on Coach Tibbets and imcquite impressed. He really had a good hand with young players and was key in helping Kyrie Irving develop. He could do wonders for our young squad.

    Well Irving still has not learned to play any defense. He has a good work ethic, which is nice but so did Kanales and that was a bust. 


    Plus since when has the D-league ever mattered.

    You know who Glen Rice's coach was Hall of Famer Phil Jackson so it is no wonder he had such a big turn around.

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
