Default Wonder how Chuck Daly was chosen as coach of the Olympic Team when he was the coach

of the team so many players and coached hated? He coached a team that many felt gave the league a bad image when they were champions so how was he chosen to coach the Dream team if one of his players was not invited?

Wasn't the main reason Isiah was not on the dream team was because of th way he walked off the floor after they were beat by the Bulls? I believe Chuck Daly was the coach of the Pistons on that day so why didn't he get any criticism? why did Jordan and Bird want to play for a man who coached a team they hated??

Either read "Dream Team" by Jack McCallum or watch the documentary piece on the Dream Team. I am sure somebody has a youtube version. Those two explains it all. The book is better though.

pretty much

wasnt it something along the lines of him being able to SUCCESSFULLY coach all those egos/personalities on that bad boy pistons team, which led everyone to believe he'd be a good coach of the superstar olympic team. (which he was)

But if the Bad Boys played thug ball and beat people down on the court, that doesn't fall back on the coach?

The documentary was just on NBATV a couple weeks ago, and this was the exact reason (which proved to be a valid one)

Thing about the Bad Boys was, Chuck never got the hate that Isaiah, Laimbeer, Mahorn, Salley and Rodman did. Chuck and Dumars were about the only Pistons who didn't get hated on.

You would think so (and I used to wonder why Daly got a pass on that back in the day). Even MJ seemed to like him, and if anyone had a reason to hate Chuck, it would have been him (and Bird, too).

I think it was Barkley who said it in the dream team doc.

"If you can coach those @$$holes, you can coach anybody!"
