    He's not right about everything, but he's right about a lot of important things.

    The young never consider epistemic knowledge. For them everything is objective and quantitative. As we age, social knowledge becomes much more valuable because you can always hire some bright young guy to do the math, but selling that math takes social skills which need a lifetime to ripen.

    You remind me a lot of me but I was never the troublemaker you are. That is your superior Aussie genetics I assume. Canadians suffer from really low power levels and being disgustingly nice.

    I am no fan of the "SVG is a mean coach" narrative. Great players want criticism in order to improve. When a player doesn't want, or can't handle criticism ...

    Then, the first thing your new boss does is rip not only your performance, but your very approach to the new job.

    Could you blame Kennard if he rolled his eyes, shrugged his shoulders, and questioned what he’d gotten himself into? Kennard took a different approach.

    He got inspired.

    “It was great. I like to be pushed. I like when coaches are on me, always giving me teaching points. Coach K was that way with me,” Kennard said after the Pistons’ 103-78 victory over the New York Knicks at Orlando summer league Sunday.

    “As soon as I got drafted, I talked with Coach Stan, and he was really involved with me. Throughout this week of practice and games, he’s taught me about this game. I really enjoyed it.”

    IF YOU NEED TO BE STROKED, IF EVERY CORRECTION MUST COME WITH A CANDY COATING, THEN YOU WON’T ENJOY PLAYING FOR STAN VAN GUNDY OR STEVE CLIFFORD.

    This is Van Gundy’s way, a trait he shares with his protégé, Charlotte Hornets coach Steve Clifford. If you need to be stroked, if every correction must come with a candy coating, then you won’t enjoy playing for these men.

    But as another former Blue Devil, Gerald Henderson, said of Clifford, it’s always better work for a coach who will tell you the ugly truth.​

    His release is a little Harden-like.
