Default Byron Scott: "NBA players should try harder"

Quote:
Though Scott is clear in his assertion that he should not have to remind certain players to give full effort, he admits that it is becoming more and more prevalent within the entire NBA.
"Around this league, it's like that," said Scott on Monday afternoon. "I'm sure I'm not the only coach that has to tell his guys that they have to go out and play hard every single night, We have to compete tonight' and things like that. I talk to other coaches and it's almost universal, which is kind of weird. To me, that should be a part of your job, to compete and play hard every single night."

it's true. NBA players seem to lack motivation a lot of the time. I don't like making generalizations, but it's the feeling i get from watching the sport. God knows it's the feeling i have gotten from watching the Raptors over many long years.

The coaches job is to motivate. Pure and simple.
If the team isnt playing motivated then the coaches are to blame for the most part.
If a player is uncoachable... then cut em loose.
