Sam, is a player's coach. He just needs to go back to the videos of last year. He should have at least until the end of the season. We are still in the hunt - hopefully Bosh comes back healthy.

But, Sam needs to stop making knee-jerk reactions during the game. He needs to try Phil Jackson's idea and let the starting lineup play their way out of their funk. Switching Calderon back & forth with TJ, too quickly is not good for either of them. At least try it for 2 games or so. I know he's trying to play anyone that plays defense, but you can't win on defense alone. But since the west was a lost cause he should've tried it then.

And why won't he ride Kapono's streak longer. It looked like Kapono had the best FG% the last 2 games, and the only one with the hot hand. Sam should've kept Kapono in while he remains hot. It made no sense to rotate Kapono out.

I think Jamario Moon should go back to coming off the bench. His drive-to-the-basket act has disappeared and his defense isn't consistent. He may be better as a spark of the bench again. Maybe have Delfino start instead of Moon.

Raps need to drive to the hoop more and get fouled at least.

Go Raps!
