    The real Bill Laimbeer impressed me when he was critiquing Drummond's game a few games ago because no matter how critical he was towards him he always ended it with a positive assertion like 'because when things like that happen they can't handle him/you' etc.

    That doesn't seem to be Van Gundy's way. He can't empathize with the players.

    Teams know this. He - Drummond- spends a lot of time north of the FT line on D now.

    I'm old school. I don't hand out trophies for bench guys clapping during game. That's their job. Only starters get credit for that.

    Give me some bear hugs and chest bumps pre-game. Being a hype man for Drummond would be funny.

    This isn't a new thing. It's more about being a good teammate. It's about enjoying and sharing in your teammates' successes. Not everyone buys into the team-first philosophy. Some players are more selfish and they pout on the bench when they get pulled or had a bad playing stretch. Team chemistry goes a long way towards winning.

    Yes. It's a string of clueless coaches.
