There is at least one sign that Quick’s performance will be difficult to sustain.

For years, some in the advanced hockey stats community fought the notion that Jonathan Quick was an elite goaltender, because his regular season numbers did not always match up to his playoff performances. But in 31 games this season, he’s looking like the all-world goalie that finished second in the Vezina Trophy voting and posted an absurd .946 postseason save percentage in 2011-12.

Quick has quality starts in 64.5 percent of his chances between the pipes, a rate comparable to his 2011-12 season (63.2 percent). He’s among the best goalies in the NHL with a .928 even-strength save percentage, and the star goalie is getting ample rest time with backup Darcy Kuemper playing well.

The Kings are currently the No. 1 penalty-kill team in the NHL, in large part because of his .920 shorthanded save percentage. Quick’s career high in that category is .906, and he hasn’t been above .900 since 2011-12.

Even with a drop off on the PK, the Kings’ franchise goalie is likely to maintain a high level of play. In seven full seasons with L.A., he’s produced a positive goals saved above average rate (per Hockey-Reference) in six of those seasons.

“He was competitive in everything. It could be a board game. It could be playing darts. It could be playing cards. It didn’t matter. But if it had a ball, he wanted to do it,” said Steve, who was a high school and college coach around Texas for 24 years, including 10 seasons as the head coach at his alma mater McMurry University.

Good coaching, starting with dad’s tips in the family backyards, was another success factor.

When Briles left for Baylor, Kevin Sumlin arrived at Houston for Keenum’s sophomore year. Dana Holgorsen, now the head coach at West Virginia, was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. After he departed, Kliff Kingsbury, currently the head coach at Texas Tech, took charge of the quarterbacks.

“They had some speed, and the next thing you know they were throwing the ball all over the field,” said Steve, who attended all 57 of Case’s games with the Cougars and has been to each game Baseball Jerseys Cheap he’s played for the Vikings. “They had some really talented kids. People talked about him being a system Cheap MLB Jerseys guy, with short passes and a run after the catch, but they didn’t see him play.”

Those things might work at the high school level, but they’re not going to work in the NBA.

The upheaval, big-money contracts and pandemonium engulfing SEC coaches have one source. Since Nick Saban’s arrival at Alabama in 2007, there have been 45 total head coaches in the SEC. Many have tried to stem the Tide’s dominance. Few have succeeded.

It would be easy to label Smart, 42, as another Saban clone and assume his former boss will cast him off as he has done to every single former assistant who has faced him as a head coach. After all, Alabama has won each of the 11 games against teams coached by Saban’s former assistants by an average score of more than 28 points.

But there’s also reason to believe Smart might be different. He spent nine seasons at Alabama, many as Saban’s top assistant, and helped the Crimson Tide win four national championships.

Former NFL general manager Phil Savage was a member of the Cleveland Browns’ coaching staff when Saban worked as Bill Belichick’s defensive coordinator 1991-94 and now works as a radio analyst for the Crimson Tide. He sees similarities in the relationship between Belichick and Saban during their time in Cleveland and Saban and Smart’s time at Alabama.

In Savage’s recently published book, “4th and Goal Every Day: Alabama’s Relentless Pursuit of Perfection,” Savage wrote that Saban and Smart “had a dialogue on the sidelines during a game that was in a language all its own. … An outsider would have no idea what they were talking about if he was standing between the two.”

LaVar being the father of the team’s top draft pick makes things a bit different, but he has no control over how the team plays or what moves they make.

So far, the Lakers have been committed to Walton as their coach and have not shown any signs of turning away from him anytime soon. While Ball’s criticisms may be valid in some places, organizations don’t fire coaches because a player’s father complains.

Walton will be just fine. Magic Johnson is on his side — that’s all that really MLB Jerseys Cheap matters. Has he been perfect? Of course not. But he’s still learning, too. He’ll figure it out eventually, but it’s way too Wholesale NFL Jerseys Nike early to cut him loose.
