Hawks Quote of the Day

Here's the quote of the day:

“They are the players, but I’m the one to push the right buttons and get them to play,” Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. “I understand that.”

Coach, I'm not sure that you want to claim that you push the right buttons to get them to play. Does that mean when they don't play that you aren't to blame? TOO often, you, the players, and anyone who was watching has seen our players not come to play. If you acknowledge that motivation and pushing the right buttons is your responsibility, then you subject yourself to a review of the games and a familiar post-game refrain regarding the players' inability to come to play every night. Again, we don't think this is something you want to lay claim to even if you think that the short term glory of thinking you made a difference in winning and losing Game 4 is worth it.
