Things going from bad to worse for Mirza Teletovic and the Brooklyn Nets! - Nov 24, 2012

Things going from bad to worse for Mirza Teletovic and the Brooklyn Nets!
The situation for Mirza Teletovic has gone from bad to worse in Brooklyn. From starting out the season only getting a few minutes in blowouts, to recently getting a string of did not play-coaches decisions. Now the situation has deteriorated to the point that he has been left inactive for last nights game.
Mirza is too young to become the human victory cigar Brian Scalabrine at this point in his career, the guy the team marches out in blowouts to shoot threes and win the fans free tacos. He also shouldnt be treated like so many Europeans before him Aleksandar Djordjevic, Marko Millic, Mirsad Turkcan who never got a chance to play meaningful minutes in the NBA. Mirza is a way more talented and accomplished player who left Europe as the best power forward in the rest of the world not in the NBA.
The results of the season are the fallout from the team missing out on Dwight Howard trade. Mirza took less money to play for a champion contender, play with a world class point guard and play in one of the best markets in the NBA and establish himself as a legitimate NBA player. Mirza has suffered from the fact that Dwight Howard ended up in Los Angeles instead of Brooklyn. The team would have had to give up 4-5 players on the team in order to make the trade happen and Mirza would have been elevated to a larger role within the team. He would have been the perfect fit as a stretch four with an inside post player who could erase some of his defensive mistakes. His role on a Dwight Howard team, or a Mike DAntoni team of stretching the floor and creating mismatches on the perimeter would have fitted his skills perfectly. When you put him in role Steve Novak plays in New York, or Hedo Turkoglu or Ryan Anderson played in Orlando and you would have a match made in heaven for Mirza.
What has happened in Brooklyn is you have a team that is overloaded with offensive minded players who are defensively challenged. The team has some decent perimeter defenders and thats about it on the team. Jerry Stackhouse has been getting minutes lately just based on his defensive toughness and ability to know where to be on the court. The team lacks defenders in the post which is crucial in todays NBA since the game is made up on guard penetration and post players helping to seal off the lane and deny easy lanes to get to the hoop. Reggie Evans has been playing about 20 minutes a night and has a reputation as a defender even though he is not. What Reggie Evans brings is toughness, hard fouls and rebounds. Reggie lacks the foot quickness to be a quality defender at this point in his career. The Nets are team loaded with defensively challenged, perimeter orientated players and Mirza is just another number in the jumble replicating what so many others on his team does.
Mirzas transition to the NBA was expected to be tough and it has been. The problem is the team knew exactly what he was a getting when he signed, a skilled offensive player who works hard but was challenged defensively. Nothing you have seen when he has been on the court has been surprising about his game so far. Mirza also isnt a quick learner; he has struggled in his transition periods when he has moved from team to team and league to league.
When Mirza was looking for a team this summer I said the best landing spot for him would have been Cleveland. He was perfect on a team with a top quality point guard in Kyrie Irving, a post player who can backstop a defense and defend the rim in Anderson Verajao and low expectations and less pressure to win a title today. Also he could have slid right into the role vacated by Antwan Jamison as a stretch four. A dream scenario would have been him and Omer Asik finding a landing spot together and Mirza stretching the floor and Omer cleaning up Mirzas defensive lapses.
The question is what to do now that he has lost the confidence of Avery Johnson and has been buried on the bench? Mirza has committed too much to getting into the NBA to turn his back on the league now. He needs to stay positive, work hard in practice and hope his situation changes in the team or with a trade somewhere else. There are places for a guy like Mirza, Cleveland, LA Lakers, Rockets, T-Wolves, Bulls and any number of bottom teams in the NBA would be willing to give a shot to a player of Mirzas talent, professionalism and commitment. Dont give up the dream yet, its just a large bump in the road.
