He also mentioned his speaking with with AnT about his shooting after the season was over. Paraphrasing here, but it was basically "hey man, you took 10 shots a game. If you don't shoot it better you will be getting half those shots". Coach thinks he will shoot it better.
That prompted me to ask my question: In a long winded fashion, I was trying to get him to give his thoughts on how much stock he put into the 5 offensive positions on a team. I got about 4 words out before he intejected "Make Shots!!". After, he said he did not like constraining players with labels regarding what position they played; basically, he looks for having multiple players with multiple skills. So, it doesn't sound like he cares who gets the shots, points, assists, rebounds, etc. He also pointed out it was in his background (I think alluding to his Princeton upbringing).
Fun night to get in the mood for the season.
I had trouble telling whether the immediate interjection from Coach Carmody was an attempt at humor, general exhaustion at the number and types of questions (not any particular person or question, per se), or just an attempt to give as little information away about the offense, without offending the asker. Still not sure whether the answer truly boils down to the favoring of the 'Jimmys and Joes' or wanting to say as little as possible, but in the nicest possible way.
