I think CJ was put on the spot. I understand why Jimmy blew up, but a coach simply cannot do that in an end of game situation that takes away any chance for his team to win. An earlier blow up might have been quite appropriate.

He's right, but it sounded like the reporter kind of lead him to those answers though.

Duke made the first 2 tech FTs. Assumign we don't steal the inbounds, we would have been down by 4 with about 8 seconds left. It was over.

I agree.

I definitely agree with the bolded part. I have no problem with CJs comments.

I have no problem with CJ's comments. He had just finished an emotional, grueling game that ended on a judgement call. I'm sure there was a lot going through his mind.

I think any of those players that are out there laying it all on the floor for a win are never going to see it as "ah we lost the game anyways after that charge, JB made a statement." They have a never say die attitude that comes along with being a winner and would take the chance, even as small as it was, to try and come back and steal the ball on the inbounds or make Duke shoot free throws 100 times out of 100.

Making those first 2 techs is a lot easier when you know you are getting 4 of them than it would have been if we had had to foul and send then to the line with the pressure on. Plus since they were techs, K got to use his best FT shooter. He may not have been the player we foul on the inbounds.
