He’ll get slammed with cash if he wins, as soon as he wins, regardless of the contract. This is all about appearances.
Thanks for the answer.
I think Izzo has a ton of empathy for his players, and they understand the way he interacts with them. I would contrast that with Knight, who may have also had empathy for them but it was tough to see.
I think Chambers is the same as Izzo (minus the wins!), but I have no actual experience that would give that belief any real credence. As with Izzo, I think it has to (ultimately) be demonstrated by his players’ actions and what they say about him.
Chambers’ rep seems to be the opposite of what you infer from your occasional observations on the sidelines. I’ve seen those things, too. To counter that anecdotal evidence, I would cite John Johnson’s tweet of thanks to PC after he was dismissed from the team; that Del Wilson has said that it is known in Philly recruiting circles that Chambers ‘will have your back’ (sorry, don’t have the cite handy), and DJ Newbill, who in his open letter after graduating, wrote:
“Coach Chambers stepped in and stepped up. While he demanded a lot from me and constantly pushed me to become a better student and basketball player, there was never a moment I didn’t feel respected and loved.”
However, I believe the evidence comes in the long haul so you may be right.
