Not sure I blame Miller. Shaw played everyone else except Miller. In George Karl's run-n-gun system (Motion O) he was more of a liability but I think he has been OK this year. Plus it was Andre's first DNP - Coaches decision in 9 years (from what I have read).
I would agree with you 100% if he was playing worse than Foye. Being the only player not to see the court can definitely rub one the wrong way. Still, it should have been something to have complained about in private with Shaw. But this was his FIRST DNP - CD of his career so I can see how that must have been frustrating on a night where we were being blown out by a tanking team.
Shaw is now stuck between a rock and a hard place. Not sure how other team members view Andre but if they like him, this could be a huge wedge maker between coach and players. by all accounts people are starting to think Shaw has already lost the team. He keeps on throwing them under the bus at press conferences.
Faried is not the manimal anymore. If Shaw forces Andre out (via a trade) it may make matters worse before they get any better for this team.
In think there is a lot of frustration right now within that locker room. The players are obviously not understanding Shaw's system, or simply can not implement it (I hope thats the case cause the alternative is the Shaw system sucks).
It is also hard to expect a fan base to support the team when yo take them from a franchise record 57 win season to what amounts to horrible basketball. It's not like we had a subpar product and decided to take a step backwards to hopefully take two forward.
At this point in his career, Dre is all about the accolades it seems. He prides himself in playing games...and boy does it look like he'll be a diva if he doesn't play.
Just get rid of him. This guy is suppose to be a veteran too...way to be a team player. "If you disrespect me, I'll disrespect you." The ****?? And you want a guy like this on your team?
Get cracking making some moves Nuggs.
I feel as the vet on the team he is supposed to show leadership. If he feels wronged by the coach there is a time and place to handle it. The way he handled it was the opposite of the way a real leader would handle it.
