JVG basketball does not sell. It's slow, its boring, its ugly. Our fastbreak average this season was what 5 points per game? We average about 0.8 dunks a game, about 90 points a game. More important than having a succesful team is being able to make money from of it. How many times were we taken out of the lineup from ABC this season?
Les knows that he needs to get more sellouts, more excitement to keep the people in their seats in the season. He needs a coach to stress the fast break, and high scoring offense. Remember the old Kings when Adelman was the coach. They were about the most exciting team there was. They never won a championship but that Areana has been soldout for years ever since.
52 games won but we were last in the league in terms of excitement. I'm not saying that its smart to change the style of this team. Hell, it may not even work out with Yao being as slow as he is and we'll lose more games next year. But we need youth and athleticism and a coach that can bring that kind of style that we have seen all over the NBA.
Im simply saying that in terms of selling this team, JVG is not the right salesman. Les knows this and in the end this is a bussiness.
