Steve Clifford offers a great observation on the insulation some players are surrounded by when speaking about Willy Hernangomez over the weekend: "Frankly if you were one place and you didn't play much, I think that if you want to play more in the next place — I would work harder, do more, kill myself, that's the way I would see it," the coach said. "Unfortunately, in the world the players live in, they don't hear that. Instead, it's the (fault of the) organization, it's the coach, the assistant, that isn't working with him right. No, come on. I tell our guys that all the time. They're surrounded by people who tell them what they want to hear. The reality is this — he wasn't playing here for a reason. You know, he's going to have to change things."
