Unfortunately, I don't see much changing in the near future with this team as long as the philosophy and rotation remain exactly the same. It's a young team that will naturally improve, but right now there is too much to overcome.
Like others have already noted, I also have been and remain a Matta supporter. However, for the first time I'm truly puzzled by his decision-making with this team. The zone is terrible for many reasons, and leads to issues elsewhere (rebounding, lack of aggression, no ball pressure, and the list goes on...). But the fact Matta refuses to use man AT ALL is unconscionable. And, saying it didn't matter what D they played today is a cop out.
This zone, and all that it entails, will be the undoing of this year's team if Matta doesn't realize soon enough just how bad it is. ANY team with a pulse can get any shot they want, and if they miss those wide open shots, no worry - the defensive rebounding is horrific if Tate isn't on the floor.
Sorry for ranting, but this is truly frustrating with the talent and athleticism on this team.
