I've been posting this vid everywhere. It had me irate last night, and I'm still mad.
Melo is shooting 40%
STAT is shooting 41%
Their coach said he doesn't look at stats "in that manner."
I don't even know anymore.....
Yea, Melo is shooting too much, but is he hearing that from his coach? You can't just willingly let the inmates run the joint, can you?
Maybe I have it all wrong.
Maybe coaches aren't supposed to employ various tactics to reign in a player. Be it one-on-one conversations, manipulation thru the media, play calling, benching, etc.
Maybe....when you have a coach...he's not really there to coach.
Am I crazy for thinking that this is a ludicrous statement by a man who's allegedly a professional basketball coach?
What's going on right now?
The head coach literally said that he doesn't look at field goal percentage "in that manner" and people are wondering why STAT and Melo have such poor percentages.....from the field? Really?
It is absolutely up to Melo to stop shooting so much, but even Phil Jackson ran the majority of plays for Kerr in practice to let Mike know "hey, stop being such a ball stopper" meanwhile MDA says.....he doesn't look at stats in that manner.
For christ's sakes people...
