Zaza, you are reading the article and gathering the meaning that you want. The man plain as days says their job is to entertain, play good ball, and win games. You're complaining that entertain was said first? You assume that means Thomas will coach over substance because of this? You do realize that he was being asked question about the entertainment value of the Knicks right?

Not only did Isiah speak about wins but Robinson himself said he wouldn't try half that stuff in a regular season game, he's just wanted to try in Summer play. Considering this is Summer League play I really think you are blowing this out of proportion.

Hell Head Coaches don't even have input with their Summer League teams. They simply fly out to watch the games.

No - the meaning I WANT is "We are going to play good team basketball and are going to play hard every night and try to get some wins" I am gathering the meaning that I gather. I can't help it if he says "we are here to entertain, and also win"

Partially that it was said first...but read the quote "They want to see a good show, but they also want to see good basketball." How do you want me to read that? It reads like a good show and good basketball are two different things. Do I really want the players concerned with anything that isn't playing good basketball?

Yes- he would not bounce pass to himself in a game. But he will showboat and play recklessly and put playing good basketball next to entertain, as opposed to understanding that they are, in fact, the same thing. In his good game, he body tackeld some dude from the other team. It was reckless and dangerous and stupid. The same recklessness that injured Frye.
