John Kuester merits Pistons fans' support?

13

Our friend Dan Feldman thinks Pistons fans should support John Kuester because he's trying his darnedest. He uses fan support of Jerome Williams, Ben Wallace, Antonio McDyess, and Jonas Jerebko as examples why we should also root for Kuester, at least for these final 21 games. The difference, of course, is that those guys also performed. They backed up their hustle with results (or their hustle was rewarded with results), which is why fans really loved them. Kuester's done a decent job handling the trouble makers and showed some admirable fire after the Jazz win, but I don't think anyone would describe him as a passionate coach. I don't think anyone is actively rooting against Kuester and I think this whole situation has kind of turned him into a sympathetic figure, but trying his hardest and this players against the coach situation doesn't absolve him from boneheaded coaching. Our criticism shouldn't be mistaken with what we (or at least I) support. I would love to see Kuester show a little more emotion and I definitely won't complain if he starts pushing all the right buttons. If Kuester is the guy to get us back to the promise land, I will be the first to eat that up so long as Oliver Miller doesn't beat me to it. I just don't think Kuester's that guy given what we've seen so far. Also, rec'd for "acumen."
