Keith Smart of the Sacramento Kings needs to be FIRED! He's horrible. I still don't get why he doesn't use his best line up which is
pg= Tyreke Evans
Sg = Marcus Thorton
Sf = John Salmons
Pf = Jason Thompson
C= Demrcus Cousins
This coach needs to be let go!
You can't really play those guys together. A score-first PG like Tyreke Evans is a really bad fit at PG alongside two shot-happy non-passing wings like Marcus Thornton and John Salmons. Too much selfishness. Tyreke needs low usage wings with good ball-handling and passing (say Wes Matthews and Tayshaun Prince).
Add Cousins on top of that bad perimeter mix and you have another player who demands a lot of touches/shots and his moodiness when he doesn't get them. Plus, Cousins and J.Thompson are iffy jump-shooters which creates spacing issues for a slasher like Tyreke who needs superior floor spacing to take full advantage of his dribble penetration and finishing around the basket (plus ability to get to FT line). As a group, it doesn't function well. Lots of bad fits. No cohesiveness. Bad chemistry. Don't complement one another.
I do agree that Keith Smart should be fired. He is bad for Tyreke Evans. Sacramento cannot afford to sacrifice a high-potential guy like Tyreke in order to let low-potential guys like Isiah Thomas and Marcus Thornton succeed. It's dumb. Smart had problems with Steph Curry in Golden State too. I wouldn't let him anywhere near a talented young guard / up and coming team at this point.
I would like to see Keith Smart coach a veteran team though. He might be good at that.
