``A lot of guys tried to give the coach what he wants, and that's good to see. There won't be tough decisions. Nobody hurt their chances.
``I'm essentially trying to re-program these guys to play within a system. It's my vision to start with but eventually it will be the way all of our guys see the game, and the options within it. Rookies and veterans alike. ...
``Arthur Kiyaga is not big in stature, but boy, he's a guy who tried to do and basically execute everything we've asked him to the last two or three days. There's other guys who give you very little of it, and that part disappoints. I notice, and it means something. Sometimes less is more. A guy gives you exactly what you want, that's what we're striving for. Other guys might have a little more talent, a little more experience, but they are not listening, and they give you none of it, it's going to be a tough road for that person, and it's not going to work on our team.
``I'm trying to break people down to build a system and build a team. We're team-building right now. It's very important if you want to have success.
``That's a big part of my evaluation process. ... All these things are asked for. They are noticed when they do them and when they don't do them. We're making our checklist. You have to buy in. It takes a while. Some people will buy in immediately, make some mistakes, but eventually get it. Others will refuse to buy in. It goes against their nature to be unselfish and sacrifice. Those are the guys who eventually will fall by the wayside.''
