I've always thought about the strategy of trying to force one of your players to grow up at the risk of a loss.
For instance, Roy Hibbert has everything needed to be a great Center on this league...except for a killer instinct. If in the coach, I would love to try(just for one game) running a crazy amount of possessions through Roy. Force him to be the focal point on the offense, tell him it's up to him to make the plays. There is obviously a risk here as well, but I feel like some players just need a kick in the pants.
I would love to try something similar with PG as well, but I feel like he has plenty of time where I look at this as Hibberts year where we will all know what he will be for the next 10.
Honestly, I woulnt mind trying that once with a bunch of people on the team. Obviously like I said, it's a risk/reward game, but even in the losing battles it would be loads of fun watching your young guy trying to lead the team.
I've always been curious about this strategy. I can understand why a coach who's job is on the line might not necessarily love it, but I also feel like it could be great for the team in the long haul.
What do y'all think?
