sorry to say this, but you are deadly wrong. Sam exhibits most of the symptoms an insecure person would have. He's always on the defensive (always think people are out to get him), he never gets into basketball arguments (like he's afraid he might say something stupid), he never says "my fault" (like he's afraid people would immediately start question his abilities).

It's not insecurity, it's loathing and lack of trust towards the media. Big difference

sure, that could be right - but, personally, I don't buy it. You can also see it in his coaching, he's extremely conservative, very rarely strays from the norm. He's very afraid of making changes. And only the past season or so he started doing some out-of-the-box thinking, but it's still a very rare occurence.

Well until the past season or so he was a rookie/sophomore coach with very little talent or bbiq on the court. I'm not disagreeing with you but really is it so shocking? We were terrible in his first year and had no talent in his second. The fact he got 30ish wins and so many close game losses out of those teams was actually pretty respectable.

Again, he's not a coaching god..but he is a 4th year coach and this will be his 2nd straight winning season(i'm being optimistic) with decent talent, albeit with little experience. That ain't not bad as Bart would say. The question of whether he'll be at the right level when his players are to challenge for the championship remains to be seen, but you're heaping a lot of expectations on him by comparing him to Phil Jackson and Don Nelson.
