Kaleb's simple tweaks show how stale Nate was

The Blazers obviously played with more effort in their win over the Bulls. Effort, a lot of times, comes from the joy of the game, which, by the way, was evident by the smiles and exuberance that had been missing for a long long time. The kind of exuberance which is infectious and can be a game changer for an organization. Kaleb fist bumped and slapped players on the ass for working hard. Nate would stand like a Fricken statue with his arms crossed, not acknowledging anything. That bugged me more than anything else. What a selfish pile.

Kaleb allowed the players to play freely without the tight leash which was Nate Mcmillan. Remember Sergio Rodriguez and Rudy Fernandez? These players had tons of creativity and talent but were forced to play a mind numbingly boring style of play featuring one on one isos. Fernandez fortunately escaped before he was completely destroyed. Rodriguez left Portland a Basket case. But I digress.

Kaleb unclogged the middle of our bigs allowing the rest of players to penetrate and get layups. I wonder if Kaleb suggested this to Nate at some point but was rebuttaled with "nah...I like the isos"

I have wanted Nate out of here for at least 4 years and told anyone who would listen. People who actually know basketball know that he wasn't a great coach because of the predictability and narrow minded style. Now we can watch fun basketball again. WOOOOOHOOOO!
