PJ managed to coach Rodman. If that can be done, anyone can be coached and I don't believe JJ was nearly a headcase they'd want us to see him as.
Exactly. They could've made him call season ticket holders like they did with Julian Right or something silly like that if there was an incident. But they're not telling us, do they.
And what happens, a player plays his guts out, is our best defender, improves dramatically on his shot and decision making, and what one incident should negate that?!
Why would Demar think JJ's been our best player last season?
What could he possibly have done? Called out Casey on accountability of some players?
Fair play to him in this case.
