More stupidity from Jimmy Patsos
Now, we get this story, which is all over every media outlet.
SI begs the question: Was Patsos' strategy unsportsmanlike?
Let's put it this way: In this post, I wrote that what has really irked opposing coaches hasn't been the sideline tantrums or his outrageous behavior toward officials, but his insistence on getting involved with opposing players.
And that's exactly what he did last night, only in a much more obvious -- and embarrassing -- way.
Look, no one is saying there's anything wrong with double-teaming a player -- especially a national player of the year candidate your lousy team is incapable of stopping. But isn't the point of doubling a player like that to put your team in a better position to win the game? If that's the case -- and last time I checked, it certainly is -- double-teaming Curry in the final minute of a 30-point laugher is reprehensible.
