a. MR is the coach. He can say no.Don’t put this on MR—the kid is a warrior, his style of play is balls to wall and that is what makes him great when he is healthy.
b. MR is the one positioning ME under the basket to take that punishment in the defensive rotation.
No one else.
How is good to have your star pg under the basket taking hard charges from guys twice his size? ME can find others wars to be a warrior without doing that.
Keep him healthy so he can help us in close games.
