It is time to start blaming John Wall and not his coach. He shot poorly when it counted it both game 6 and game 7. Wall’s defense is weak especially considering his other worldly athleticism. Scott Brooks isn’t a great X’s and O’s coach but the whole package of player development and general positive energy is a net positive. Wall is an elite talent who should be a more complete player.

Still, Washington lost a 7 game series on the road against the #1 seed so it is unfair to throw Brooks (or Wall for that matter) under the bus. I just believe Wall can be even better.
