Most of the shots he took were reasonable shots and the only ones Florida's zone defense was giving us. If he doesn't take those shots who does? It's not the kind of shots he took that bother me, just that his technique is so bad.
Tom, I think they'd be reasonable shots if he had shown he could make them at better than a 25% clip. I don't think he's shown that. Whether it's technique or whatever the issue. How is JOB3 repeatedly taking shots he rarely makes better than him passing it back out and re-setting and giving one of our 4 other players a chance at a better shot or getting him another chance closer in later in the set?
He was 1-8 yesterday I think and I don't think sitting him out a short stretch to reinforce it hurts us all that bad with what he's giving us if he keeps doing that.
I gotta believe there are shots available in our half court sets better than 3's, 18-footers and 15-foot fall-aways from Johnny more times than not if we take those away from him. And the best way to get that through to kids these days is playing time.
Yes, short term lessons can be painful in that short term, but helpful down the line. And we still have alot of games left to play.
I'd just as soon get it done this year and not have to re-enforce again next year.
