Bitter indeed. If the news of Lohner wanting out had come a week earlier I probably wouldn’t be so ticked.
Two weeks ago I was in the wait and see camp in terms of the Larry k coaching situation. I was excited to see what Lohner and co could do for Utah.
Now I have zero hope for the future of the team which I’m sure is an overreaction, but I don’t care anymore. I just ant him gone. Hell, pay him his salary and make him stay home. I’m sure Connor would be infinitely better as an in game coach.
My problem with him was mostly the in game X’s and O’s. I think there are at least a couple thousand guys on the planet that can coach better than him. He is TERRIBLE as an in game coach. Can’t draw up a play to save his life, can’t beat a press, can’t coach up his guys. Can’t get his players into their offensive sets with time to spare on the shot clock… I could keep going. His thing in the NBA was his grit and nastiness. Why does that not show in games that he coaches? The only time that comes out is when he is screaming at officials, and by then it’s usually too little too late.
Honestly the team would be better off if they didn’t have a coach at all. I bet every player on our team could draw up more effective plays.
