Is it Wittman or Wall on why the halfcourt offense sputters?

Recently Witt & Wall sat down to watch the recent game (Celtics) together. During this Witt pointed out who should be getting the ball in certain moments. He explained to Wall, how trying to take advantage of Pressey, hurt the team's rhythm. Eventually Wall conceded saying he took too many shots (29), as he shot 13 more than the next highest player.

There's been a lot of debate here recently on who's fault it actually is. Is it Witt's offense & coaching abilities, is it Wall padding stats for an All-Star birth. Either way I think this was a good thing, that these two guys got together to hash out the problem of the offense. For the Wiz to take the next step, the coach & point guard needs to be on the same page. This could be the steps in place for the Wiz to finally be over .500.

It's one thing too point out flaws in a room full of teammates & talking to everyone as a whole. But for them to watch the game just being them two in a room should speak volumes. Wall never have that veteran PG to learn from, to see a vet run the offense, as he can view it from the bench. Sam Cassell can teach him all he knows, but it's not the same as watching one of your peers on the court during a game. We can all point out other guards in the league, who came in with the same situation as Wall. But, we all learn differently, some guys can learn from talks, while others need visuals. Maybe this is the way for Wall to learn & even take his game to greater heights. Then again, it just could be Witt.
