[From the comments, seems silly to have it in threads of real Bulls talk -yfbb]
This is why thibs is a good coach not great one. Snell and jimmer should be getting minutes one for defense and resting butler and one for offense resting hinrich and or dj so they are fresh come 4th quarter. I knew this shit would happen anyone with eyes saw the weaknesses this team had and knew they needed a influx of shooting and rest. Yes the wizards are a good team , but our offense is making there defense look like the spurs . Thibs should’ve been experimenting with different rotations for the playoffs for situations like this. His lack of foresight caused this mess and now he is reaping what he sowed.
Furthermore I don’t give a shit if jimmer can’t play defense !(neither can boozer and dj somewhat) He can shoot and shoot well and in his samples spurs and magic games standout he provided a spark. There offense was spaced and guys were getting open looks and pentration and kick outs were working. Let’s see the wiz collaspe on the paint with mdj,hinrich/dj and jimmer on the court at the same time. (thibs this is where a lightblub should go off!) Snell provides jimmy with rest as well you can’t expect so damn much from this guy good lord. He can help enough to have a lineup like hinrich , jimmer,snell,gibson ,noah for 5 to 10 minutes to give butler rest without losing much ground and perhaps getting some points from both jimmer and snell while keeping your main guys fresher and increasing bench points and perhaps a lead. Thibs has no excuse for coaching stubborn, it’s been his downfall for years. HELLO LEARN!
This team needs to use every single weapon available , that’s how you overcome a more athlethic/talented team. They are playing right into the wizards hands and they don’t have to. Throw something at the wiz they won’t expect and use everything in your arsenal to overcome the gap. I think they could win this series still if they use everything they got , but they have to do it now ! what is there to lose? your getting smoked already might as well. And don’t give me it’s too late to adjust nonsense and for that matter smaller rotation nonsense (clippers,pacers, etc all using extended rotations and guys they picked up mid-season or later to provide scoring/rest). If it wasn’t for his stubborness , this should’ve been in the works months ago when they could afford to play around to see what rotations could work in situations such as these. (never under-value what a shooter can do for your team offensively)
This is all on thibs, every single bit of it. And he says "we look at everything" . Bullshit! you look at what you want to look at, just like someone posted earlier and nailed it. The potential of a better offense is there with better rotations . I see it, other fans see it , the blind see it ,everybody except you! Unleash everything because if you do this could be a fun series/playoff run. Keep doing what your doing enjoy the offseason that is all :)
