“People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown
if I were to make a list of the top 5 things Jim did as coach, his benching of Tinsley would be in the top 5, maybe it kight be number 1.
That is one thing I liked about JOB. The FO was hesitant to move on situations. Their hesitancy led to the Artest debacle, SJAX craze, JO's entitlement, Tinsley holding us hostage, lost trades (Augustin, Mayo, and others), and ironically JOB staying too long.
JOB at least forced their hand in dealing with Tins.
Then I remembered that to you better means loosing games and now I regret spending the time typing any of this.
ps. smile at my temporary avatar, you know that dogs awesome.:-)
Another Posey fact: 88% of his 241 FGA that year were for three. He hit just about a third of his shots. JOB kept playing him.
