tonight had many perfect examples of why he needs to be gone. it would not be hard at all to find a coach that will be more successful with this team.
-Benched the starters for WAY too long in the second quarter. 10 point lead dissapeared
-Did it again in the 4th quarter and completely gave the game away.
-playing a certain player big minutes just because the game is in a town where he's VERY popular, is a weak and crappy move that only a weak coach such as Smart would pull.
-blaming the players in the post game pressor. atrocious. how are they supposed to "do what they need to do to finish the game" when they are bench players + Jimmer in against the Jazz starters
-Icing your BEST player for the ENTIRE 4th quarter is the dumbest thing ive ever seen. Tyreke is playing at an amazing level. yet he sits (ill check to make sure Hell hasn't frozen over the first time i see Kobe sit on the bench till the 3 minute mark of a 4th quarter while his teams lead is getting smaller and smaller)
-Coach sayin they didnt give the ball to Tyreke the last couple plays because "the defense was daring him to shoot" is ****ing stupid. he made PLENTY of jump shots tonight. and he was the best playmaker. yet idiot coach would rather have stupid cousins or Brooks give the ball away
