Same thing here, some players will not like getting cursed, jokingly or not. I know I wouldn't like my boss to curse me when I make a mistake, regardless of whether he's known as a "joker" or not ... Mitchell obviously believes in the "tough love" philosophy of coaching, which works for some, but can fail miserably when dealing with a sensitive person.
Boo Hoo, they can retire if they have a problem.
Humphries plays like an idiot and I am sure the Smitch smashes his head agaist the wall like we all do when he decides to go all MJ and go 1 on 5.
Ditto with "Joey, Joey I'll pass you, Joey Hey Joey, I'll pass you the ball"
Again I would love to see another coach beside the Smitch here but there is no faulting him for what he said.
