JOB has become famous for saying one thing and doing another.
Some call these contradictions. Some call them hypocritical. Others, like our venerable Uncle Buck (revered in every area except for his JOB apologetics), call it "coachspeak."
Last night, James Posey was the first big off the bench after JOB said a couple of days before that Tyler was now our first big off the bench. Tyler has way outplayed Posey, and Tyler seems critical to our success, but whatever. Coachspeak won the day.
A few weeks ago, JOB said AJ was the best player in the preseason. Translated via coachspeak, this actually means, "AJ will never see the court. In fact, he will not dress during the regular season."
It's hard to take Jim O'Brien seriously.
I'm starting this primarily as a thread to keep a record of all the coachspeaks that occur this year. When they happen, drag up this thread and add another. Ought to be good for at least 25 to 50.
If you want to list past coachspeaks, that's fine too. And I'm sure there might be some banter and some pestiness from Flox the fly. But mainly it's a place to list more contradictions as they occur.
And for those of you who will say we don't need another Jim O'Stubborn thread, I will counter that those are the only kind we probably need. Until what needs to be done is done. Notice there aren't a lot of threads anymore about Stephen Jackson or Tinsley.
