One thing which has hurt the Bucks this season on the floor is the inconsistency of playing time Drew has divvied out.
There are currently 11 players who are logging more than 20 minutes per game on the season and Drew has put a staggering 26 different starting lineups on the court to begin a game.
The 2013-14 season was lost early on, but that doesn't give the coaching staff a pass on never developing any sort of consistency.
Throwing more minutes the way of youngsters is understandable—and expected when struggling—but there needs to be a method to that madness.
In fact, as Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote back in January, Mayo was concerned with the team's direction, or lack thereof:
"It's the same thing it's been night in and night out," Mayo said. "It's been the same result, whatever the game plan has been.
It's hard to get a rhythm when you don't know what's going to happen for you night in and night out. You may get 6 minutes, 30 minutes. There's no staple to what we're doing. You can hang in there, compete and keep it close.
If you don't have a backbone to what you do, whether it's going to be a defensive thing, an up-tempo thing, a pound-it-in-the-paint thing, a drive-and-kick thing. We've got to find a staple as a team.
Finding that staple, as Mayo calls it, is a big part of a coach's job.
Drew was never able to develop any consistency with his approach to starting lineups, rotations, offensive schemes and general team morale.
That's not to say he is solely responsible for the poor season, but all the flip-flopping of minutes and lineups goes to show you he had no clue what to do with this team either.
