Richard Sherman critical of Mike Nolan’s ‘complicated’ defense

  Richard Sherman critical of Mike Nolan’s ‘complicated’ defense Sherman said it is a misconception that a complicated defense means its a better scheme. He feels that players have “nothing to fall back on” when things aren’t going well and tend to get lost. The Cowboys have allowed a whopping 36.5 points per game through four weeks, which places them last in the NFL. Their 430.5 yards allowed per game is third-worst in the league. Despite that, Jerry Jones threw his support behind Nolan this week.

New Nets coach Steve Nash struck out on one attempt to hire a former star teammate as an assistant.

But after Dirk Nowitzki declined, Amar’e Stoudemire said yes.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

It’s easy to get excited about this. Nash and Stoudemire carry name recognition. They ran an excellent pick-and-roll with the Suns, and Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant could learn a few tricks.

But good players don’t always make good coaches. Does Stoudemire have the desire for the grind of assistant coaching?

It’s also unclear how large of a role Stoudemire will hold. Brooklyn retained former Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn as Nash’s lead assistant. Former Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni – who coached Nash and Stoudemire in Phoenix – could also join the staff.

And Irving and Durant are very differently styled players. Their pick-and-rolls won’t closely resemble Nash-Stoudemire pick-and-rolls.

Still, the Nets loading up on former stars with no coaching experience is at least intriguing.
