I don't want to speak for Chef, but I don't think he disagrees with everyone, he was just pointing out that Kemba can and will learn how to get better at late game situations. This will come with experience, and last night was a great lesson.
I think what happened at the end was because we had been jacking a lot of 3s and bad long range 2s early in the fourth. Dunlap said we're best as a rim attacking/free throw team, and you obviously can see that's what he told them with the way Sessions and Kemba kept attacking the paint. I just don't think Kemba realized how long and quick Kirilenko actually is, and there hasn't been much film on him since he's been gone the last few years.
Anyway, I'm actually glad things happened the way it did last night. It reaffirmed that Kemba does have gigante cojones, and a huge reserve of ice water running through his veins. A lot of teams struggle at the end of games because they don't have a go to player, someone willing to step up and take the big shot. This is a very important player, something many teams struggle to find. I think Kemba showed he is that kind of guy.
i would also add something from the game chat. down the last minute, one possession we got the ball to mullens in the high/mid post about 4 feet outside the block. he reverse pivoted, too one dribble baseline, spun back to the paint and got fouled shooting. i said this is what mullens needs to do about 80% of the time. work the long post for dribble/drive or pull up jumpers against much slower big defenders. this is what we should have been doing the last 4-5 minutes. slowing the game down, grinding and getting to the foul line. this is what our pg's need to recognize as far as game situations go. we did not need kemba or sessions forcing drives and allowing them to get back into it. i know they are young, i was just simply using this to point out that the poor game management should not be overlooked. although the end result was absolutely fantastic, and i don't want to understate that shot by kemba enough.
