Default This is Phil's practice

Quote:
L.A. Times -
With time running out on their season, the Lakers assembled for practice Monday morning and experienced a much shorter session than expected.

Phil Jackson gathered the team in the video room, showed a brief clip from the movie "Hustle & Flow," and bluntly informed the players that they absolutely didn't hustle on defense and showed little or no flow on offense in their Game 4 loss to Phoenix.

Then he sent them home to ponder the 3-1 deficit they've created for themselves.

In other words, they might want to start hustling or else they'll flow right out of the playoffs.

I mean, ok, this sh!t works with veterans who actually know how to play the game but I'm not sure Phil is on the right track here with these young dudes.

Phil has made this group overachieve but his decisions at times have been questionable and thats no surprise really since hes not specialized to babysit.

On the other hand, maybe this is all he can do at this point of the season

i agree i have been in question of some of his tactics for some time now... like you said what works for veterans may not work for this group... that and the fact that some of the guys don't exibit a real high basketball IQ, not thier fault really some are too young and some are too errrrr too ahhhhhh what's the word too ................ stuborn?
