Elevate Krystkowiak now
The Bucks have proven the old saw that a team takes on the identity of its coach. Stotts is a mid-level accountant. When he gets you down, he asks if you need help getting back up. We've seen enough of that approach. Its time for a street fighter. A guy who, when he gets you down, makes sure you stay down.
This morning the Diesel suggested to me that the Bucks already have the man for the job under contract. He was right.
Anyone who saw Larry Krystkowiak perform in a Bucks uniform knows that. As a player he was undersized, underathletic... and yet wildly productive.
He got the job done through intensity and desire. He gave maximum effort every minute of every game. That is exactly the attitude this team needs. At the moment, the only thing consistent about their effort is its maddening inconsistency. He would change that.
That's why as soon as The Diesel threw out his name I instantly saw the genius in it. The question is: Will Senator Kohl?
