    I guess this is therapy for Coach. Lord knows he doesn’t need the money. Everyone wants to find out what the “tweak” was. I’ll be interested in what he has to say about using his bench this season and next. Marcus, Derek, and Jon made the biggest sacrifices for the past season. When you have basically two starting 5’s, why not have a power team and a pressing team to mix up the tempo and wear teams out?

    As the story said, he is selling a book. Making the TV PR rounds is par for the course for all authors. The book will be an interesting read.

    The tweak? On CBS this morning he claimed that it involved having Harrison pass the ball more. I think that it was a masterpiece of PR what ever it was….or wasn’t.
