Monty called out the team tonight


Though he started out with this:
quote:

WWL-TV Sports ?@wwltvsports 2h Monty Williams: Obviously didn't have everyone ready to play and that's on me.

He went on to say this:
quote:

WWL-TV Sports ?@wwltvsports 2h Williams: I can't grow up for the players we have. We have a lot of guys who need to grow up.

quote:

WWL-TV Sports ?@wwltvsports 2h Williams: This is not AAU or college. This is the big-boy league.

quote:

Jim Eichenhofer ?@Jim_Eichenhofer 2h Monty: "I can't grow up for the players we have. I can only hide so much... This is not AAU or college. This is the big boys' league."

quote:

Jim Eichenhofer ?@Jim_Eichenhofer 2h Monty on loss in home finale: "Like I told our players, our fans and the people who care about this team deserve more than they got today."


He certainly deserves some of the blame from this year, but he is right for the most part about the players on this team. They need to step up this offseason and learn how to compete with the big boys

I'm fairly certain they are not looking to add more draft picks and near-rookies.

I'm not worried, but I'll be disappointed and upset if they go that route.

Well at least in his first statement he acknowledged his teams failure was on him.

I left early. Monty was right to call out the team. Pretty lethargic display for the last game of the season. All I expect as a STH is effort. When they don't care, I don't care. Losing is fine, just look like you give a damn.

Did Monty not know he had a young team? I am growing weary of whether he is the one to bring this team to the next level. His coaching and game management has left a lot to be desired and now he is finger pointing with a young team.

I still don't see us making the playoffs next year. We just aren't a good team we have 3 players that could be really good.

I think everyone saying how much help we need is an indictment on how bad gordon was and thay contract is

Monty knows he's gone.
Message needs to change because the players have tuned him out.
Gordon is still a POS and can't wait till he's gone.
Gordon thinks teams still want him, but he doesn't want to play for the Hornets and doesn't even have the decency to show up and show the other teams he can still play day in and day out.
