Is there any reason that exists on the face of this planet why Stuckey didn't start tonight?
Remember when Kuester said that the young guys were all going to get an opportunity to play and that the starting spots would be EARNED, not given? Yeah... I don't like liars. We can't get rid of this clown soon enough.
Maybe Kuester is experimenting with starters that don't turn the ball over so much....
Maybe TMac earned the starting job in yesterday's practice?
Maybe she should started ..he looked awful in the third and to start the 4th..Tony Parker ate up him and everybody else in that closing third qtr run...
Stuckey must have had the worst practice of all time for him to lose the starting spot after how well he had been playing. And yeah, LA, Stuckey has looked bad in his whopping 14 minutes or so tonight, but I wouldn't have expected him to come out on fire after being demoted for no reason after playing so well, and we all know Coach Q didn't give him a reason for the benching before the game. That just ain't how Kuester rolls.
Stuckey: 16 minutes, 3 pts, 1-for-5 FG, 1 assist, 1 turnover, minus 11 (worst on team)
" Hey Joe, how're you doing, this is Pat . . . Would you mind to paly Tmac in a game against winning team ? . . . Would like to have an detail assessment by myself . . . Nah, not this year, could be next . . . thnaks . . . take care . . . bye. "
Of course he played poorly. He was just pulled after we was, unarguably, playing the best ball of his season the last 4 games and he only played 16 minutes. He was also relegated to playing all of his minutes with his worst running mates; Prince and Hamilton, and just handing the ball off to them at the top of the key. That may sound like excuses, but no one is playing well in those circumstances. Kuester (again) didn't even tell Stuckey why he was pulled from the starting lineup (as if a legit reason even exists). Heck, he probably didn't find out till he took his warmup shots in the pregame shoot around.
It's pretty obvious at this point that it's chaos. I'd recommend that you don't try to read too much into any moves that Coach K or Joe D does or doesn't make. As soon as someone on the team or in the organization gets arrested, we know we've reached rock bottom.
And if that's how he reacts to being benched for whatever reason... he isn't wanted on my team. Lets compare him to Bynum who I don't think should stay either but when asked about his 48 mins he played in one game? He is looking to get paid this summer.... If for no other reason that reason enough to play with heart/passion/energy/hustle... You learn more from a person in times of turmoil then you ever learn doing a good run.
A picture of Kuesters new assistant coaches has somehow found it's way to the internet.
I freaking love this. Post of the day material!
Here in Montana, USA...It looks like a picture of the former Piston who played in his 1,000th game last night...
Stuckey had his best game of the season against Utah, the day after the controversial "protest". Is that not playing well amidst turmoil? Stuckey shouldn't be subjected to such horrible, lame duck, wishy washy "coaching", if you can even call it that. Nor should any of our younger players. This man is single handily destroying this team.
There is no "team" to be destroyed. There is a mish-mash of pieces. If this team was a jigsaw puzzle, you would have to stop working on it early because 2 side pieces and 1 corner piece were missing.
Gotta figure that coach is gone...maybe even before the season ends. It wouldn't be as bad as the cancellation of Cap-N-Crunch cereal, so lets at least look forward to that event.
Nooo! What a way to break it, I didn't know they cancelled Cap-N-Crunch. It was my favourite cereal as a kid.
They're in the discussion phase for saying good-bye to the cereal. Just like we are with the coach.....
