    No Love for Johnny

    The announcers always point out how good Fred's coaching is on the inbounds play and they always credit his NBA experience. But Johnny Orr was THE MASTER at the inbounds play. It's hard to imagine that that isn't where the importance of the inbounds play was instilled in Fred.

    Are you the same guy who started the "NOBODY TALKS ABOUT HORNACEK!" thread?

    No, I didn't start any of those threads. I'm not making some general complaint about people forgetting about Johnny. I'm pointing out specifically that I'm sure Fred got his knack for good inbounds plays from his college coach, but that the announcers never mention Johnny when they point it out.

    I agree THIS IS VERY SERIOUS announcers!

    Re: No Love for Johnny

    Announcers are often not very informed on that stuff. The easy thing to talk about is Hoiberg's NBA career so that's what they talk about.

    Re: No Love for Johnny

    You guys obviously never saw Johnny's teams. If you had, you would know what I'm talking about. And I'm not that old. I saw Fred play when I was a student.

    If Gotleib was doing the game, he would mention it.

    When a team plays good D should the bring up Tim Floyd?

    Re: No Love for Johnny

    Johnny's last season was nearly 20 years ago... that's why you wont hear much about him. Some current players werent even alive when he last coached.

    "But you know who the REAL master of the inbounds play is? It's Johnny Orr."

    ...said every analyst and commentator, ever.

    National CBB announcers are about the 2nd lowest form of life behind officials.
