I like to follow the basketball team, but I am not as plugged in to how it actually runs from a coaching stand point. Every game, I notice Donny Guerinoni really take charge during timeouts as TJ is in the background in the huddle--involved but not the primary speaker for instance. Further, I will see he and TJ conference for the beginning of a timeout and that decision will be relayed to the team usually by Guerinoni.
Here's my question. Is Donny Guerinoni the primary strategy guy on the staff (even more so than Coach Johnson), the Tex Winter to his Phil Jackson, so to speak? This is not a swipe at TJ, though 90% of the comments that follow will likely make it that. I know Guerinoni has been with TJ for a while (and most of his career). Anyone notice that he seems to be x's and o's guy or can shed some light on how he and Coach Johnson interact and coach the team?
