So if a coach does not have his poles chasing the guy with the ball behind to X his a a bad coach? What if your team plays a match up style of Zone is that a bad coach? So if a coach see his team has slower foot speed then the team his is playing and switches to a zone he is a bad coach? I thought this game like basketball is all about match ups and realizing when a guy is slower or faster then you?
