He is right that our small-ball stank last season, but not much else

Our small-ball WAS putrid last year, and CTB does get forced into small lineups too easily by opponents targeting Huff with extremely high hedges.

But that does not mean McKoy was the answer (he wasn't). I do think McKoy could have been an effective tandem with Huff during periods when Hauser was on the bench, but there were just not that many possessions in that situation.

But our small-ball woes were more about offense than defense later in the season, and McKoy was a big part of that problem (if we consider a McKoy-Hauser post pair as small). The result was that the coaches went big as much as possible down the stretch of the season, mainly by keeping Huff in the game a lot more than in the early-mid season and spelling him with Caffaro. McKoy's late season minutes were more as a 3 alongside Huff-Hauser and they were awful.
