Scheme is only one part of the issue though. I agree with @Ouchie-Z-Clown on this. Monty shares some of the blame but Ayton owns a huge chunk of it. Even when Tim Duncan was playing 2nd fiddle to David he looked dominate and it was clear he was going to take over the team. I could come up with a list of future star players that looked dominate even early on and looked like they were destined to lead their teams. I have never had that feeling once with Ayton minus his playoff run.Right. I think this is pretty easy to see what’s happened.
Ayton is a screen setter here. That’s how you’ve developed him the last 4 years. At best a third option.
Never taking in to account Paul is at the end and saying hey maybe we should develop the 22 year old. It’s the same system. Monty is a system coach.
Guys are screaming for Ayton to take over now that Booker isn’t there and Paul is a shell but you’ve never developed him to be a 1 or even a 2. He’s never been out in that position 5 years in. You’re asking him to do something he’s never been asked to do.
He’s a screen setter for Monty guard orientated mid range offense. You’ve taught your parrot to cuss don’t get mad when he cusses now.
