Loved the postgame interview. Jon said he was taken out of the game after a layup and Sanchez told him he wouldn’t play him anymore if he won’t start playing D…he said he didn’t care how much he scored. He said another coach told him his body language was terrible. How did Jon respond? Like a leader. Said he had to be a better role model for the young guys and improve his body language and his defense. At the end of the game he told Sanchez he wanted to win it…so Sanchez told him to go win it.
Afterward…Jon presented Coach Sanchez with the game ball in the locker room for his first win.
THAT’s a leader. Taking responsibility…taking coaching…holding himself accountble…making himself better to lead the team by example. All without pouting or resisting.
