Default difference between a 1000 win coach and triano

So it took George Karl an extra couple of nights to finally claim the 1,000th victory of his NBA coaching career.

That's OK. It could take him another 1,000 to figure out J.R. Smith. Or maybe get halfway there.

The season wasn't a month old when Karl and Smith did their usual tango, full of emotion and passion and everyone around the Nuggets simply shrugged and nodded their heads.

"It's become one of those traditional rites of autumn, like sipping hot cider and watching the leaves turn colors and fall. One day or night the 6-foot-6 guard does something silly or selfish and Karl's face turns colors and Smith falls into disfavor.

This time it was poor judgment and bad decisions on the court followed by being late to a morning shootaround that got Smith a seat on the bench for all but one minute during a three-game stretch in mid-November. There were two DNPs versus Phoenix and Portland wrapped around a cameo appearance against the Knicks.

That was all followed up by a reborn, rededicated Smith back in the Nuggets' lineup ready to take the next step forward in his career."

i feel like triano should do the same thing with weems and bring in julian wright to show how much value playing defence really brings into the table

You know there is logic to this. It's one of the things I liked about Sam. He wasn't afraid to bench someone for not playing the right way. Rather than sit them after each mistake, give them a few games to ponder their selfish play. That way it doesn't errode confidence, but hopefully just makes them hungrier.

The coach has to have ultimate power. If the players can get away with playing their way and not his... that's not going anywhere good.

Both Karl and Triano preach defense, however one delivers the product on the floor.
