This one is a tough call. While Joe has put things into place that indicate a bright future (Drummond and Monroe), he actually took a talent-depleted team and made it worse (shipping off Gordon for pretty much nothing, trading of Prince and Daye for Calderon) in the short run. Clearly you can't expect Frank to go make the guys quicker, to make them care. Frank was dealt an off-suit 10-9 to start the season, and - surprise - couldn't do much with it. I think there was definitely improvement in some of the individual players - Jerebko and Bynum had their best seasons and Knight improved from last year. Singler and Middleton both came out and played better than expected. Monroe regressed a little (probably due to uncertainty in his role, but he's been playing better recently), and CV and Max weren't anything special, but that's not a shock. Stuckey sucked, but the three guys that got worse are gone next year anyway (let's hope), while it was clear near the end of the year that the guys were starting to develop something resembling chemistry on the court.
