I didn't say "no babysitting." Maybe overstated, since babysitting will frequently be necessary when dealing with massive egos no matter what the age or profession, but the amount of babysitting needed for 18-21 year-olds will, all things being equal, be much greater than a team of ostensibly more mature men. An NBA coach doesn't have to have someone following players to class or stay up at night wondering if they will do something embarrassing to the program or do something completely out of character that could damage their (and possibly the coaches career).You must be kidding if you think there is no "babysitting" in the NBA. You think you are dealing with kids with big egos in the NCAA? In the NBA you might have the entire team give up on the coach, and it's not all that uncommon.
Good hire. Will be interesting to see how recruiting goes at the higher profile school. Also interesting to see how Butler reloads.
