Default "Developing" players

Most teams in the nba suck at it. Most teams don't have a clue how to smooth out a players weaknesses and accentuate their strengths. What's frustrating to watch are players with obviously fixable weaknesses, floundering year after year and then ending up playing in China

Take Michael Beasley, the problem with his game is simple he takes bad shots and doesn't rebound. The solution is to get him to stop taking pullup jumpers and rebound the basketball. He has average perimeter skills for a small forward and lacks lateral quickness, but, he's a huge mismatch for powerforwards. If he concentrated on drawing powerforwards away from the basket by hitting open threes and setting screens for point gaurds he'd be a stud on offense.

The only teams that consistently develop players are the Bulls and Spurs. Both teams take guys with talent and show them how to put it together, Tiago Splitter, Danny Green, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson, etc. etc. Other teams just can't do this.

Its not only teams fault.a player will develop if he wants to develop.if he has that drive in him.many people don t have it like tmac or shaq or they just lack iq.althought they were dominating and skilled they could be better but didn t train enough.beasley is very talented but the guy just don t really care.maybe cause he s in a bad team but i m sure he has issues.he settled that ok i m in the nba that s enough.few excel greatly for example mj or kobe lbj etc

It's not as one-dimensional a process as you think. The player also has to commit to the team and go with the program.

Sometimes in the draft you get lucky in the draft and score a Tim Duncan. Other times you get a real headcase or crazy egomaniac who just isn't mature and likely ever won't unless you have a miracle worker of a coach

This isn't 2K. Coaches can't just control their player's specific movements and decisions.

Players don't pan out because they don't have the talent or they aren't refining their game correctly. Sure coaching has a solid influence on how a player will adjust his game, but even if they are set free, they may never get to where everyone thought they'd be.

It's hard to break habits that players have developed since youngsters. On the court things happen so fast you usually default to your goto routines and actions.
Also did alexd just say shaq didn't having winning instincts and iq?
