Dwane Casey one of the best coaches in the NBA?
 
Quote:

Obviously, there has to be a better way of accounting for the raw talent on a team beyond simply using the franchise's previous W-L. And that's where Daniel Myers' Advanced Statistical Plus/Minus comes in. In essence, ASPM is a boxscore-based, more stable version of Regularized Plus/Minus that is probably the most predictive all-in-one advanced box-score stat out there right now. Denominated in efficiency differential, ASPM is ideal for projecting a team's performance via a minute-weighted average of the individual ratings of its players.

Comparing the weighted average of their actual 2012 ASPMs to that expected differential, then, provides a measure of how much a team (and a coach) exceeded expectations, given the amount of talent on his roster.

This should somehow account for the outliers. For example i dont think no coach should be first

moremilk 04-19-2012 02:07 PM

also injuries and how long they've coached a team, especially with a short training camp
there's no way Brown and SVG are two of the worst 3 coaches in the league, that's absurd

moremilk 04-19-2012 02:09 PM

also, I think coach of the year is one of the most stupid award ever
not only it implies that a great coach one year will somehow become less good the next, but it also ignores the fact that the work of a coach is not a year by year thing. Teams are built over years and you can't arbitrarily separate one year from the whole ensemble.

Toby 04-19-2012 09:48 PM

I haven't seen enough Raptor games to give an opinion on Coach Casey. I've only seen one, vs. the Blazers of course, and I remeber you guys having a motivated push in the 4th quarter to make it a somewhat close game. It almost looked like NBA basketball, and that's saying a lot in a Blazers vs. Raptors matchup.

Don Vito 04-19-2012 09:55 PM

Lol @ Mike Brown.

:roflmao:

Blaze 04-20-2012 12:27 AM

If greg popovich isnt first, its bullshit plain and simple

bang on statement, however what if it's a coach that comes in and just changes everything and exceeds expectations to a certain extent? maybe the coach of the year award should go to new coaches. but then, to argue against my point, interim coaches could be placed in a terrible spot and are doomed to fail.

Coach's don't have to perform? They don't have bad years and good years? Sometimes exceptional years worthy of recognition? Really?

I assumed you were both a Raptor and Trailblazer fan. If you don't mind, I'd like to know why your on this board, it can't be for the stimulating intellectual discussion.

absolutely, unlike playing, coaching is basically intelect, knowledge of the game and hard work and while variations can occur in the amount of work a coach puts in, I have a hard time believing most great coaches don't go 100% year in and year out. Occasionally it can happen, but that's the exception, not the rule. As far as the other two factors, they can't possible vary (downwards) except for some older coaches who don't stay up to speed with recent developments, but that's a trend that happens over decades, not year to year.

Can anybody make an argument that thibodeau is less smart, or knows less about the game this year than the last? Or that he worked less hard?

I don't get the connection. So because coaches do not lose knowledge, there shouldn't be coach of the year award?

Why isn't it possible for their performance to vary year to year?

I don't see how the argument only applies to coaches.

They perform just like players.

They have bad games and good games just like players.

rapsmannn 04-21-2012 07:05 AM

casey already is my favorite all time raptor coach, don't know if thats bad or good,

this team is as bad as the one we had in in 05 before we drafted andrea bargnani

love what he has done with andrea, i just hope he'll realize jose needs to go

JoeyJoJo Shabbadu 04-21-2012 12:06 PM

SVG and Doc Rivers are not bad coaches. So....

Who says he doesn't see it? He has said he wants players with motors and that certainly doesn't describe OCHO. Oh and there is that little thing called defense, which Jose still has trouble with.

Superjudge 04-21-2012 02:40 PM

I don't think you have a clue what a "motor" is. Jose has the best :motor" on that team...a motor is intensity and effort.

Motor means "compete, will, effort". They use the term motor because they can't say no spine, no drive, lazy without it sounding terrible.
