As for Brooks....the question I have is : was he stifling Ibaka by not playing him enough minutes the last two seasons, or is he responsible for his development? People were clamoring for Ibaka to be above 30+ min/game, but Brooks wouldn't do it. Now that he is getting the minutes, he's a monster.
I think lack of minutes has definitely hurt Ibaka. Brooks and the staff have been good in regards to player development so I won't slight them there. Getting good shots at the end of games and use of the roster is what has bothered me.
Read a columnist in Cleveland say Cleveland had been trying to trade Varejo for the last few years, but only good teams wanted him and didn't have the picks they were seeking. He pointed out that the Thunder could be a match this year. Pretty please
