We've been over this. You disagree with everything so there is no point. So let it be said, "Mike Brown sucks".
For what it's worth, here is a snippet from an article about the Cavs from last season around December:
"Despite defense being the hallmark of Brown's coaching style, theCavs have been especially mercurial in the first few weeks when the opposing team has the ball.
To review: The Cavs opened the season as a borderline top-10 defense. They then dropped to nearly league-worst levels in adjusted defensive rating. For now, however, the Cavs have stabilized as a league-average 15th in defensive efficiency again, allowing an estimated 102.1 points per 100 possessions.
What can we make of this besides a lack of consistent effort?
Per Synergy Sports (subscription required), the Cavs have actually become an elite team at attacking the pick-and-roll ball-handler, with the 0.69 points per play (PPP) they yield ranking second in the league.
It's a similar scheme that the team has been utilizing all season: throw help defense at the ball-handler, rotate defenders and quickly recover around the pick. Although it leads to a foul in this particular play, its initial defense on Chris Paul helps cut down the deadlier of two evils.
Just as well, the team is proficient at defending against the roll man and spot-ups, similarly ranking ninth and eighth, respectively, against those plays.
What they aren't capable of defending are isolation plays, in which opponents are scorching them for 0.94 PPP—the worst isolation defense in the league. Fortunately, isolations have been limited to just 6.3 percent of opponents' total offense.
It's an odd testament to the fact that, although the Cavs lack any elite defensive specialists (apologies to Mr. Gee), their defensive system, when whirring, can be effective. Just ask the L.A. Clippers when they were held to a measly 32.2 percent shooting on Saturday night."
(sorry, that quote screwed up the formatting)....According to mysynergysports.com, the Cavs finished with the 6th best pick n roll defense. It was in spot-up and iso that they got scorched the most--which points to individual defense--not team defense. Believe what you want. Apparently, learning under Pop and Carlisle and producing tangible results after that is not indicative of anything.
