Have you noticed something about every picture of Tom Thibodeau—ever? He's always yelling. He yells at refs, he yells at players. He yells at the hot dog vendor. He yells more than Nick Miller!
Here's my all-time favorite Nate Robinson quote, tweeted by KC Johnson. Robinson is discussing the Bulls offense shortly after training camp commenced.
With all that yelling, how are players supposed to feel good about themselves? Come on Coach! Get with the 2010s! This is an age of affirmation and team building.
I know that the players love you and one another and that it's an incredibly tight team. But clearly your yelling is having a detrimental effect. Namely, it's ruining my home theater system.
I have nice speakers, and I'd like to keep them that way. When I'm watching the game, I want to hear Stacy King and Neil Funk, not your bellowing "JO!!! JO!!! OVER HERE!!!!" blowing out my side channels.
Count to 10 once in a while. Take a chill pill. Relax.
I mean the worst that can happen is you take a seat, the other team starts scoring, we lose the game, we lose a bunch more games, we plummet to the 14th pick in the draft and we win the lottery again.
It's only by not caring and becoming a losing coach that you can truly redeem yourself.
