“I just think that at times we take for granted how talented we are as a whole and with all the guys upon this roster. We think we can come out and just go through the motions at the beginning of a game, dig ourselves a little hole, and think we can just pick it up at any point and time, and it just doesn’t work like that.”

“You gotta come out from the jump and try and beat a team for the whole 48 minutes. I think we’ve been really good from the start of games these past few games, and come up short in a few, but I think if we keep pushing, keep playing hard all the time, we’re going to win games.’’


While I was the head coach at Jackson Community College, someone told me I need one knucklehead on my time. I never understood that advice. 

Here’s Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun:

“The Clips break the “Knucklehead Rule” which I think was first espoused by Charles Barkley. You can have one player with an unpredictable makeup, but if you give the guy a partner or two so that the knucklehead behaviour can spread, you are usually headed for trouble. It can also mean bringing together players that aren’t necessarily bad dudes, with off-court issues, but are bad for team chemistry because of their decisions on the court.
Why did the Clippers think Lance Stephenson and Josh Smith would be a good idea?”
