Default Moon and Bargnani Problem!

It seems sometimes both Moon and Bargnani HESITATE ALOT when they get a open shot ...... i think the reason for this is Coach Mitchell always tells them to drive the ball and get very angry usually when they shoot that 3 point shot ..... that is the reason why they hesitate SO MUCH when they get a open 3 point shot ..... if you watch the games you will know what time talking about .... Coach Sam just has to relax and let them decide on there own .... there both now pretty good shooters, and having Coach sam in there head when there about to take a jumper isn't good ...... what yall think? yall notice this? really with moon he been hitting his 3's but sometimes he thinks about it to much because he know if he doesn't hit the shot he will get yelled or benched by coach but if he hits it he will be okay .....

You might be right. But if so, I'm confident it's a short term problem leading to a long term improvement. Both those guys have been poor at shot choice in the past, and they both need to be taking it to the hoop more. If any current hesitancy is part of reeducation that will make them both more aggressive in future, it will be well worth it.

It's somthing that I've noticed since Sam became coach.

He yells directly at players far too often.

Theres definitly a happy medium between chucking and driving the ball. Last year Moon sometimes became chuck happy. Once he finds that medium he'll be just fine and Sam wont Scream at him.......as much.

Default Bargnani is a Big POSITIVE!

Personally i think Bargnani has had a magnificent start to this season. He has been a MONSTER in the defensive end and made many key rebound snags as well as blocked shots at key junctures of the game. There is no question Jermaine has been a huge influence to him. Andrea at times has shown a pretty mean edge to his game, something you never saw last year. Some of his drives to the basket in the offensive end have been things of beauty. He has scored some huge baskets at deciding points of the game. But even if he doesn't contribute to the offence, he now is finally contributing in a big way to the defence, and that alone, makes him extremely valuable. Maybe Colangelo got it right a couple of years ago. it's starting to finally look that way. I know, i for one was never a believer until the last 3 games. Hope this contines and for the first time i actually think it will!
