The fact that we have the same issues year after year has as much to do with the people running the show as it does the players.
Good post.

You don't need to be a particularly talented team to solve a lot of the problems that have plagued this team. When a team consistently has issues with simple things like knowing where support players are or making a pass to a wide open teammate, it goes beyond the roster.

There are middling college teams that have had a more consistent and coherent transition game than the Rangers.
