Frank Expresses Caution for Team USA
Given some past performances by NBA players in the Olympics, it’s not always the case that players are truly focused on the same goal. Sometimes players’ own agendas can be an issue.
Pistons coach Lawrence Frank was asked this week in a radio interview with Jim Rome whether that could be a concern with this summer’s U.S. team in London.
“It depends on the fabric of your team,” Frank said. “It starts with your best player. Many times if your best player is your hardest worker, he’s your most unselfish player and his heart is for the team, the rest of the guys are going to fall in line. If your best player is opposite of that, it’s, as we say in the coaching business, rent don’t buy.”
