LOL

You haters, Sam is a really good coach.

I've yet to see a single person who played ball at a decent level and dislike Sam.

He is straight forward with you, and as a player that is amazing.

His defensive schemes were suspect, but so far looks like it was only lack of player(s) (JO).

Give the dude time, he is doing it right.

the only downside i can think of so far is having to come up with a downside that doesn't exist.

That's why he's a great ASSISTANT. When you constantly get out-coached TACTICALLY (X's and O's) then it's time to stop being a head coach.

As for "lack of players".... B.S. He isn't the only coach who's ever had to deal with having only one all-star.

This is fair enough... as fun as it is to bash Sam he hasn't really done anything YET to spark my ire.

Old habits die hard though. lol.

disagree man. assistants are for x's and o's. coaches are for ego management and vision, etc.

Meh. I dunno. I think that it's like football.... you want your assistants to have that knowledge but as a coach it's up to YOU to make the final call... and to do that you have to know what the hell you're doing.

I'd rather have my assts. do the ego-smoothing.

final call maybe, but look at the teams in the finals last year - the lakers with tex winter and the celtics with tom thibodeau... these are (needless to say successful) teams with specialist assistant coaches. this frees up jackson and doc to manage rotations and egos and all the rest of the coaching stuff. imo, this makes successful teams.

I dont agree, I think the tactical part is the most important aspect of a head coach. Then he should worry about other things.
Assistants are only to help on that aspect.

And I think thats the biggest flaw in the NBA. Lack of tactics.
