Coach Vinny Del Negro Can't Seem to Defend Quentin Richardson From Long Range

With about 4 seconds left in the 4th quarter against the Knicks, Vinny tried a new, unconventional strategy to defend the Knicks dangerous 3-point threat. He screamed in Q's ear from the bench in an effort to distract him.

Bush league move? Perhaps. BDL suggests Vinny may have just been trying to help Richardson cure his hiccups. There may be some issue in terms of assessing Vinny a technical, but hell, if players can do it (and they do...all the time), why can't coaches. Besides the whole part about it being unprofessional, I think its a great strategy.

The most disappointing thing for me here is that it seems Hughes could have easily rejected this shot. Does he not jump?
