I am really glad you are not on the coaching staff. BTW, Richmond has done pretty well at turning things around by abandoning zone D this season, and they play in the same conference that we do.Ive been telling one of the assistant coaches for about a month that Bones needs to play more. As soon as St Louis went zone we should have put Henderson and Crow in the game. Those are the 2 best outside shooters we have. They would have gotten open looks. I wont go on a tirade here but we should have been playing zone all season except against Richmond. All but 3 of the teams in our league are below 35% from the arc. The line is further back. So make teams show if they can beat you from the outside !! Its also easier to rebound out of a zone defense. Its also easier to collapse and double team inside, playing zone. And its not rocket science that the more different defensive looks you show, the harder it is for teams to adjust and get off good shots.
