Like he said after he was fired: you can't make players into something they aren't. If the Kings wanted a defensive team, they should have gotten defensive players. I think that's apparent now, that the guys from his teams (Bibby and Miller) can't play defense. Oh, and Adleman made it to the finals with the blazers, so don't say he can't get to that level...
One more thing about the coaching situation: Nelly said he was interested in the Kings job, but never got a call (because the maloofs wanted defense), now look what the warriors are doing to us with Nelson, and look how great teh king's D is
