Hoiberg offered a window into his thinking when asked if it’s too early to make wholesale changes. The first-year NBA coach already has replaced Tony Snell with Doug McDermott. “Not necessarily. We’ve thought a lot about it,” Hoiberg said. “When you’ve had the inconsistencies that we’ve had early on in the season, you think a lot about those things. Maybe if you do change the lineup, it’s more to change the rhythm of a guy. It’s not necessarily a demotion or anything like that. It’s just to change the overall rhythm.”
So when he sees Nikola Mirotic hesitating on open 3-point attempts, someone not appreciating two good eyes and the skill to shoot with accuracy, he gets a little annoyed—the same annoyance those may have had with him not driving to the basket and settling for long jumpers. “I’m on Niko pump faking. There’s no reason for you to pump fake when you’re one of the best shooters at your position,” Rose said. “With the green light that he has. The more we play, the more we get used to taking those shots, everybody will get used to playing this way.”
Nikola Mirotic on the freedom that Fred Hoiberg’s new offensive system provides. “It’s huge for us, for me, for all the team, because I think that we have a lot of players who can grab the rebound, push the floor, play simple basket[ball], play for each other. So that’s what I’m doing sometimes and I’m really feeling comfortable … it’s [a] great offense right now, but we could be better. This is just the beginning but it’s a good start.”
