  • Ben and Joe Oil obviously are already all stars already fantastic players, but they each have some flaws that I guess have kept them from reaching true greatness.

  • Season long greatness.

  • How how do you try and lock it with them?

  • How do you try and unlock the keys, The issues they both have, whether it's shooting, whether it's conditioning?

  • Um, have you talked to them what you hope to do?

  • And are there other instances where you've been able to reach superstars and kind of fix their flaws, so to speak?

  • Yeah, listen, there's there's then there's clearly instances where I reach superstars and there's probably somewhere I haven't you know, that's just part of coaching for 20 years.

  • You have an opportunity with a lot of people.

  • I think it helps having experience with a lot of different personalities been singular and Joyal singular are unbelievable basketball players.

  • And they've proven that, um, and what they have to do is win.

  • Like that's why we're all here, right?

  • And so, uh, it's amazing how I keep the having one together, and I said, Well, the yet should be the word that we use mawr.

  • They haven't won yet you know, they're young, they have time, and they have time to work.

  • And I love what they both bring.

  • I loved it.

  • The biggest thing, uh, seeing them in the gym is there.

  • I choose.

  • You know, they are both brilliantly smart basketball players.

  • And so that really will help in our growth process.

  • Eyes trying to win together.

  • Uh, we they could do it.

  • They will do it.

  • Um uh, the yet is what we have to take away on that.

  • You know, I can't tell you when that's gonna be, but it's gonna happen.

  • Uh, they're terrific.

  • So, uh, conditioning, we have to get in shape.

  • Listen, um, every player that says, um, they want to win a championship.

  • Then there's required things you have to do.

  • It's just required, uh, toe win and one of this conditioning.

  • And so we're gonna get everybody in the best shape possible.

  • Obviously, with cove, it it makes it double tough.

  • You know, um I don't care about been shooting as much as so many other people seem to care about it.

  • Uh, I care that he's a great player, and I'm gonna let him play.

  • I'm gonna give him the keys and let them be free on play.

  • Uh, if he takes no shots, I'm fine.

  • If he takes 10 threes, I'm fine.

  • If he gets the line 15 times, I'm fine, then is brilliant enough for me to allow to play and not getting his way and try to cloud his head up with a bunch of crap.

  • You know, it's about winning, and and that's what I want them to focus on, how to make each other better and win breath.

  • Browns Offense was kind of unique in the fact that there was very little pick and roll, not a lot of ice.

  • So I think they were, like bottom to pick and roll is a team in the last couple of years.

  • Yeah, Ben and Joel have really only played in one offensive system, their entire n b a career ocean on E.

  • Do you think there's gonna be a learning curve there for them?

  • For them to learn some different concepts that come out of that style of play something a little bit different?

  • Yeah, it will be.

  • And that's, you know, again, too bad we're doing it now.

  • Obviously, with short, you know, time and so we're gonna be very careful in what we do.

  • So we don't overthink this, and I don't want them out on the floor thinking right now we have some time together, but I guarantee you were more pick and rolls, Uh, and I guarantee you'll see more pick and rolls with Ben and Joel in them, you know?

  • So, um, but I like a lot of the stuff they ran in the past two.

  • They had some pretty good movement stuff.

  • Uh, and so we wanna make sure that because of this shorten preseason shortened training count on quick first game that we don't try to do too much.

  • We wanna make them is comfortable.

  • It's possible just as a quick follow up.

  • Do you Do you think with Tobias, Then you could do a lot of the stuff you did with him in Los Angeles with this roster here?

  • Yeah, I think you almost easier in somewhere stretches.

  • And, you know, Tobias and I obviously talked to tons since me taking a job.

  • First thing we got to get him back to being is a quick decision player.

  • Uh, I told him, you know, I saw him dribbling way too much and, um, the biases so darn skilled, going downhill, left and right.

  • And we need to get back to taking advantage of that.

  • You guys were gonna have time for four more here, starting with John Clarke with NBC.

  • Hey, Doc, that was exactly what I was gonna ask you about.

  • What?

  • Tobias Harris.

  • Um, so I guess I'll ask about conversations you've had with Ben Simmons, Um and and kind of Ah, maybe a leadership role that that he has toe have as as your point guard, if you're gonna have him as your point guard on the floor and things like that.

  • Well, we've got a lot about that.

  • You know, the leadership thing I don't kind of worry about right now, I kind of let that manifests itself through his played, uh, through his practice happens in his example, but because he's gonna have the ball in his hands so much, he has to have an understanding every night of what we're trying to do and what what we're trying to get.

  • And he has to be able to communicate that, um, to everybody on the floor.

  • So hey, has to become a great study er of our offense of the opponent's defense.

  • Hey, has to know every single position on the floor on understand where everybody should be.

  • And he has to vocalize that.

  • So he will do that.

  • You know, uh, been is a great decision maker, you know, eyes.

  • It been a point guard, you know?

  • Honestly, I don't care.

  • I don't even know that yet, John.

  • Uh, but I know one thing.

  • If you could get him in space going downhill, the ball gets to the right place.

  • And so we want to do that as much as we can.

  • When you look at this team right now, what's your identity?

  • What do you want?

  • Your identity to bay?

  • Yeah.

  • Keep.

  • It's a great question.

  • And I have my own thoughts that I will not sure yet because I want to make sure we get in the gym.

  • You know, I called the lab.

  • You know, you gotta get in there, Onda.

  • The identity has to be what they believe.

  • It is not what I wanted to be.

  • I know that we should be a great defensive team.

  • I know that, Keith.

  • And so if we start with that but you win with balance.

  • You know, teams that have won the title have been in the top 10 or top five and either offensive defense and in the top 10 in either offensive defense.

  • So you have to have great balance.

  • And so that's what we're going to strive for.

  • We want to be a great defensive team and a great offensive team.

  • We wanna be top 10 in both.

  • And if we could do that, uh, you know, historically that would say we're wanting the elite teams on DSO.

  • That's it's gonna take an elite effort to get to get there.
