kirilenko is such a great relentless, agressive, team player. I imagine his mentality is the epiitome of what a coach would want. ill take 5 players like kirilenko over any all star team.

Yes I would definitely take Andrei Kirilenko too if I was a GM or a Head Coach. His hustle play (both defense and offense) makes him a definite roster spot in my opinion. If he could just try and be more cautious in getting injured and stay healthier. He is a great player though.

Yes.

Coaches dream of sitting-down players for injuries all the time.
Precisely my thoughts. If you had a team of five Kirilenkos, you wouldn't be able to field a team on many nights. Unfortunately, the Jazz look like a team with a lot of talent that will never do anything because they have too many injury-prone players.

He has been hurt a lot but I respect the fact he gives it his all whenever he is on the court. I wish more guys did that in the league.

Which coach's dream? I remember Coach Sloan berating him for his shot selection to the media last week.

Sloan has been extremely unhappy with Kirilenko's shot selection, and in the past he has been critical of Kiri's tendency to stray away from his man for blocks and steals. If he is a coach's dream, it's sure not Sloan's dream.
