I'm someone who used to support Randy Wittman but now I have had enough. Wittman does 3 things wrong that just drive me crazy and have lostus some games
1:Wittman is a horrible game manager and horrible at making substitutions.- I don't know how many times Wittman has rested the starters for too long. I understand that the starters need rest but that doesn't mean you rest them all at once. It seems like at times we can be up by 10 or 15 points and Wittman puts in the second team and all of the sudden it's a tied game and then when the starters get back in it takes them a few minutes to get back in the flow. There should always be at least 2 starters in the game and when wall is out there should be 3. Also Wittman doesn't know when to call a timeout. When the other team gets momentum he lets them keep the momentum until its a tied game or the w,izards are losing, when he should actually take a timeout when he sees the momentum start to shift.
2: Wittman relies on wall, nene, and beal improvising.- as stated in a fanpost a few weeks ago the wizards defense is mostly wall improvising. Sometimes nene and beal join in on the improvising but it seems when that happens beal throws up bad jumpers and NeNe turns the ball over. Wittman needs to establish some type of of fence because when wall is out we can't do anything because he is are offense.
3: Wittman has lost the locker room and can't motivate.- The wizards are horrible coming out of halftime and at first it was the players fault but now it's Wittman's fault. He can't get this team to play 48 minutes of basketball. Part of his issue I think is at times he coaches against the players and not for the players. For example Kevin seraphin, I understand seraphin does a lot of boneheaded moves but sometimes when he makes good moves Wittman pulls him and then yells at him. Also Wittman always has someone in the dog house wether its maynor,booker,seraphin,vessels,singleton,or porter someone is always in the dog house.
Short story short fire Wittman and hire Sam cassel.
