Just as I assumed, you failed to even address any of the points I made.

Also...

Really? He knows how to teach defense? Care to explain because I beg to differ.

They were the best defensive team in the league under Byron Scott (number one rated defense two years in a row in a league with extremely strong defensive teams). When Frank took over they got worse every season as the guys that played under Scott were removed from the roster until they finally bottomed out in the mid-20's the last full season he was there. Devin Harris was a very good defender in Dallas, but looked average to poor in New Jersey. Surely, a good teacher of D would still have the the team firing on all cylinders year after year.
