Study shows O'Brien has bigger impact than most coaches (fails to point out that impact is negative)

What Junk Science. How does it factor in the circumstances. Obrien was not even hired as a head coach for the one team he had the most success and they got progressively worse. Not to mention how you factor in the yearly changing o f team dynamic and the favoritism. I think it's a case of someone seeing JOB as an NBA Norman Dale from the movie Hoosiers and wanting to write a favorable article about him.

Maybe the Rockets would take him, they are into science.

Yeah, no one could figure out O'Brien's clock management. But the block they called on Hibbert was a bad call. I watched the replay of the game on Fox and both Deneri and Buckner were mad about it. Hibbert got there and both his feet were outside the circle. That would have been a big turnaround.

I couldn't figure the clock management though. Granger's shot was rushed at around 26 seconds and then we just let the clock run down until the charge call with I think 5 seconds left. When they hit the free throws it was over.

No one has mentioned this, but with 5 seconds left, down by 4, and you HAVE to score a three . . . why is TJ in instead of Collison?
