Jet’s head coach delivers a strong message
Atsushi Ono had his own say when it came to the statistical factor that has weighed in significantly in every recognised sport. Ono expressed his concerns regarding his staff and player had. He said that if your staff puts too much emphasis on stats and facts, then they deviate from the main goal of winning, and the players follow suit.
Speaking during a lecture at the Japan Society of Basketball Studies, Ono said that one plays to win and that is the clearest motto there can be. Going against the present trend, Ono refuses to select players solely from Player efficiency; a statistic is combining a player’s assists, blocks, turnovers, and rebound steal. Atsushi Ono is the philosophy that one should select a player on the intangible merit that they possess, and being a former star guard, Ono could well turn a few heads with the lecture.
