The uncle has been ripping MR and the staff for 3 years. If anything has changed with Silva, it’s likely something HE has a problem with. Could be nothing, could be anything. There are plenty of reasons for him to be frustrated. He doesn’t get any help inside, most players can’t get him the ball, there is little organization or purpose to the offense. It’s crap, and the staff doesn’t seem to have the ability to address it.There has definitely been a change in MSS' energy for the past several games. Now that someone has mentioned that his uncle has tweeted a few messages that expressed disappointment in the coach and staff, this could potentially be putting pressure on MSS. MSS was always so animated when playing. He had energy and with every basket he made, he let you know it. I realize he has struggled a bit lately but it could be about the behind the scene issues going on with his uncle. I hope someone is helping MSS through whatever he is struggling with to ensure he gets through it for his sake, forget everything else.
He is the hardest worker on the team, the most mentally tough, and really the only player who has made any significant improvements in 3 years. Everyone else has remained basically the same or regressed. If he's pulling back, that is a major red flag.
