You can fire coaches all you want, and I have seen teams do this, but bottom line is talent wins!
One of the great coaches of all time taught me, you can't make chicken salad out of chicken crap!
One last point, after quebec lost to Rochester last week, they went and signed one of the top guards available, jerimy bell. They did not fire their coach, they got him better talent.[/quote]
I also believe if you were to ask the d league office (and I think I might) as to is there a big difference in the talent, and are the allocated players distributed equally to all the teams?
When you present me the evidence that the roster of the jam is these guys from some obscure place whose only basketball experience has been playing aau for the dad in danville illinois, then i will agree with you!
Bdyer, you are good with the computer, maybe you can research some talent then for your coach there in bakersfield.
And last I checked, didn't Buffalo win?
All of you haters, hate on, but these standings speaks for themselves. And all the point I was ever making was that this coach, who did a great job in vermont in the PBL, may be in over his head in the d league. And that it is a different level of player in the d-league.
You guys can excuse it all you want, because I know some of you like him personally, and believe it or not, so do I like him personally.
But we all need to know what are capacities are in life, and our limitations. I tried to coach football once, wow, did I ever suck as a football coach. So now i am an armchair coach for the bears, and boy, from my living room, I am the best coach the bears ever had.
They even have the Dleague 2008 rookie of the year on their roster. Not to mention players with solid overseas experience. I mean they have a player from the university of wisconsin, and I believe thats the big ten, Univeristy of Miami, and on an on.
You shouldnt spend so much time trying to be a mind reader and detective. People can have an opinion and thats our right. Just because you don't like it, you try and mischaracterize what I am saying, and make inferences that I am trying to put the coach down.
I would think a coach would want a honest opinion and not some artifical fan club junkies, praising his every move.
If my opinion is wrong about coach, then I think he will have time this season too prove me wrong!
"What do your daily actions say about the pursuit of your dreams?"
"Our Dreams are the roadmap that God uses to get us to where He intends for us to be!"
"When I stand before God at the end of my life
I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'"
"Delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."
--- Psalm 37:4
