I for one was hoping to see our big men develop. Instead I saw Spears play the majority of his minutes outside the arc. One positive is that I did see them swing the ball from side to side around the arc and do some fakes. However, this would work better with spears inside so we had two big men in isolation, one on weak side.

New coach takes adjustment time. We are still very thin in the post. And the reason you saw Spears outside the arc some is because we were running a 4 out 1 in offense to iso Braz inside to give him a good opportunity to score.
Did you think our big men were going to magically develop in 3 to 4 months? There’s not magic fairy dust that can be sprayed and turn someone into a Dwight Howard or Tim Duncan. I did like the opportunities some of our sets gave our big men. Shamari was on the outside of the perimeter on those sets because the play wasn’t designed for him. It was designed for a Chris on an isolation or a guard slash with Shamari as an option. BTW, if you didn’t know by now, Shamari has one of the best strokes on the team, inside and outside the arc.
