Hey, Gts, its great that you are posting again.
As I stated in my first post in this thread, maybe he can coach again, Somebody thinks he probably can't .
I just didn't feel its right to rant at another coach's struggles when he doesn't have a great record either.
I think there's one key intangible too. Having great assistants.
Larry Bird heavily relied on Rick Carlisle when he coached Indiana.
Phil insisted to hire Tex Winter at LA.
Rivers didn't win another ring after Thibs left.
And now I think Mike Brown is not doing great at Cleveland and struggled in LA bec Mike Malone is no longer assisting him. Same with Mark Jackson with the Warriors. Yes, Golden State is still ok but I think they were rated much higher after acquirinig Iggi,.
