Larry Harris: Dynamic or Inconstant?
Here's a topic for comment. This weekend I got into an argument with a friend who said he was fed up with Larry Harris and his constant overhauling of the Bucks lineup. He said the Bucks would never be successful until they developed some year-to-year continuity.
I disagreed. I said what I like most about Harris is the very fact that he is humble enough to admit a mistake and smart enough to try to immediately correct it. I said nothing frustrates me more than a general manager who locks himself into a failing player, coach, or scheme simply because he doesn't want to admit error.
I used the example of Ron Wolf. He made many errors. But he was a great general manager because of his ability to recognize those errors and adjust course. He might have lost some face in the process but he spared the organization needless suffering and ultimately kept them on a championship path.
What do you guys think? Is it better for a GM to stick with a plan and ride it out, or adjust course as he sees fit?
