Default Scottie Brooks and Erik Speolstra

I'm watching the NBA Special on the Miami Heat's Championship season, and everything I hear out of Brooks mouth is right on point. I'm not sure how he is from and X's and O's standpoint, but his leadership and motivating skills are impressive.

At the end of game 7, NBA Finals, he's in the huddle with his team, and he says something like, "No matter how bad this hurts, they beat us fair and square, and we're going to respect them like Champions, and go over there and shake each of their hands". Everything about the statement and the way it was delivered was perfect. Not only is it respectful, but I think the real point was to help the team quickly put the defeat behind them. Sort of like skipping the pouting and denial stage, tipping your cap to the victors, and immediately focusing on next season.

Conversely, I'm really not a fan of Spoelstra's coaching style. It's hard to put a finger on it, but his choice of words just always seems poor, and he always looks nervous as shit. Like it's halftime and he's already in panic mode talking about not choking. He seems to know his stuff from an X's and O's standpoint though, and the Heat's defense is the best in the league.



What are your thoughts on these guys?

Brooks after that loss was very respectable. I give him props for it.

Spoelstra is a bum. All he does is read from his book of basketball cliches. Similar to Mike Brown, his first job was being locked in the arena basement editing video tapes.

Right on point.

Spo always looks shook. Never finds the right wording.

Brooks is a solid coach, that speech at the end of the Finals was legit.

Brooks is a very good coach and has done fine job coaching his young, talented squad.

I think Spo's lack of a good offensive is snubbed out from having 2 elite players and another good player in Bosh. I'm not fan of his coaching, really, though he can preach defense... He's sort of like Mike Brown in that department.

Spo runs what Riley tells him to. He's a puppet.

Spo is one of the best coaches in the league.

This guy had a unit of Wade, Beasley, Q-Rich, Carlos ****ing Arroyo, and one legged Jermaine O'Neal as an elite defense in the league. Everyone likes talking shit about Spo, but this guy is an NBA ****ing champion and is better than whoever the **** you like. His defensive gameplans are excelent and there arn't many coaches that put more hours in than Spo does. If you don't respect the work this guy does, your honestly just a little *****.

The Heat always defended well, we have some of the best assistant coaches in the league, plus we have The DON, so we'll always defend well, he taught everybody well.
Spo sucks in the offensive front, always have. Time management he sucks, doesn't call timeouts when he has to, let's players screw constantly with no consequence, doesn't know how to draw a play with start-middle-end. In the last two games of the finals last year he was perfect, but I can't remember the number of times I was like because of the horrible decisions Spo and players were making under his orders, the most excruciating being Lebron not attacking the rim and forcing jumpers when he had no business doing that. Glad that changed when it had to.

Coah Spo is one of the best young coach of all time and the best coach in the league right now.. Dude was one of the main reason why the heat won the title.. He's as important as LeBron for the Heat.. If not for him LeBron would still be ringless.. Its quite sad that he's pretty underrated here..

What are your thoughts on these guys?

I think Spo is the better coach, he might not be as good with the words as Brooks but I'll take the guy who makes good tactical changes over the guy who's good at delivering a loosing speech. X's and O's is the most underrated aspect of basketball to fans.

To me Brooks and his staff cost the Thunder a chance at winning the finals, these guys sat there and watched Shane Battier destroy them because they insisted on keeping Perkins in the starting lineup. That's one of the worst pieces of coaching I've ever seen at that level, the guy was useless against what Spo had the Heat do as a team.

At least Spoelstra know how to organise a defense, Brooks in the other side let Ibaka on Battier and Harden on Lebron.
