Another Decent Grade for Stotts
Around Milwaukee and in Bucks Nation, Coach Terry Stotts is considered the NBA version of former Eagles and Giants head coach Rich Kotite; he can't motivate anyone and he can't strategize his way out of a wet bag. Around the nation, however, the assessment has generally been mixed, leaning toward positive.
In the latest grade-out for Stotts, Charley Rosen of Foxsports.com gives the Bucks skipper a B-. Rosen leans toward the point we made and were grilled for weeks ago, namely, perhaps it is the Bucks players who are deficient and not the coach. Anyway, here's his assessment:
"After their scintillating early-season successes, the Bucks have fallen on hard times. Andrew Bogut has been just okay. The more Jamaal Magloire plays, the more his limitations become evident. T. J. Ford has lost some of his zest. Michael Redd is inconsistent. And the league has caught up with Bobby Simmons. Through it all, however, Stotts has Milwaukee on the verge of a postseason berth. Give him credit for taking risks and for reaching deep into his bench."
