Case in point of why he is a terrible coach. We had a foul to give TWICE last night. Never did we elect to use it. Never. ever. ever.
That Parson's 3? Wouldn't have happened if we fouled Harden when he was trapped on the right wing with 2 SECONDS LEFT.
Same in OT....foul to give...instead we let Harden penetrate and pick up a foul IN THE ACT OF SHOOTING
I know I'm spoiled by Phil but this is coaching basics. Even Kobe knew about the fouls to give.
Coach Vino was the coach of the month indeed.
When do we get Kobe back at full strength? Seriously I'm not joking?
On the freaking bench with a clipboard in his hand and him letting his teammates....all of them know what they need to be looking out for and prepping for. He is severely handicapped with this injury. Kind of hard to coach when all you can do is a quick cell call to Pau or Vitti and random texts. This injury sucks balls. We need Kobe back now, on the bench ready to give it his all from there.
Dan joked about turning his cell phone off a couple games ago if Kobe was going to call at the half like he tweeted or texted. But this is an interesting dynamic and Kobe has the juice in the organization. So Dan damn well better let Kobe be involved with strategy and x's and o's in the playoffs.
Kobe from his own career and from studying under the Zen Master SMOKES Dan Tony in basketball knowledge. Kobe has been playing against Pops and Timmy D. for 16 years
. Timmy came in I think the year after Kobe.
I can't imagine though that Dan would think this would be good for his "look", but WTF....Mitch just said he was coming back next year, so if
Dan is smart he will WIN as many games as possible and let Mamba help him "a lot" on the bench.
