With really hard @ss coaches you need an equally hard @ss captain to act as a go between like when we had Primeau with Hitch and then later Prongs with Lavi since Lavi and Richards didn't "see eye to eye."

Keenen obviously had one of the best captains ever in Messier. G is kind of player's captain more than a coach's captain in the Messier mold..that was also the deal with Richards. Not a knock necessarily just an observation about leadership style in the lockeroom and with particular coaches. You really need to take that into account when bringing in a coach...because if your leadership doesn't buy into the coach and act as that middle person who is willing to call out his players from time to time and be a hard @ss with a strong personality when necessary and be the coach's "general" ...then you will have problems...
