There seems to be this prevailing attitude that the coach has to yell at the players and be tough with them to get them to perform. Guys play for D'Antoni and PJ because they like them. They play for Pop and LB because they respect them. Coaches who try to bully, burn out. Like Paul silas or AJ. Chuck Daly and Pat Riley didn't have to treat their players like bad children to get them to play for them. Your coach has to be as smart as his assistants, or it won't work. That's why Curry's staff mutinied on him. This is arguably the most important hire of the offseason, and I think it is hard to argue there was someone better Joe passed up.
