I don't think you can judge Thad on this years team. They are so young. I am a Thad fan but I struggle to defend him when it comes to the player improvement complaints. If this team gets better by the end of the year and improves significantly over the summer that is all you can ask. I especially want to see the big men get better. They are both athletically gifted bigs with a lot of upside. Thad actually installed a press last night which is a big move for him. It was a just a token press at times but I loved it. It gets the other team off kilter at times. I hope he keeps the pressure on. He has a deep bench this year with capable backups at every position.
I think Harris will get more minutes going forward. He pushes the ball up the court and jump starts our offense into a faster pace. Lyle backing the ball up the court is too slow in my opinion. By the time the window wiper weave offense gets going it is too late causing a lot of bad looks to beat the buzzer.
