In Oates's defense, he may have been given a directive to dump the defensive shell game. Immediately. Fans may have been emailing Ted making it happen.
Coaches with no resume no experience I think are more likely to make concessions. While George plays dumb and says he had no idea how Dale would coach, if true I expect he learned and discussed with Oates beforehand what he was going to do.
Its funny Dale ignored his players one on one, and Oates may well do the opposite. Never talk to the team, only chat with players.
Why do we always do things to extremes.
All D even our slowest should jump into plays? If its all a secret plan to get Green out of his shellzrman, maybe it will work out in the end. Look dude, everyone is doing it.
They say that people who are quiet by nature are thought to be wise, and solid, whether they actually are, or not.
Oates is certainly the quiet type.
For good or ill, he's the coach. Guess we'll see what happens.
