Too "professional" to officials(Posted by bearhc on 1/12/14 at 8:51 am)
When you see the types of calls and no calls that were made against the Pelicans, it is time to get irate, pick up a technical, and possibly get ejected to make a point. Monte seems to concerned about maintaining a professional demeanor. The officiating last night was beyond bad. It is time to get mad coach.
It isn't about acting a clown on the sidelines or even taking technical fouls. It's about working the refs. I never see Williams talk to the refs and asking them to look out for illegal things the opposing teams are doing. A lot of good coaches do it and a lot of the time it makes the refs aware and forces them to either warn the other team or force a call.
