I know he dealt with some pretty bad injuries but thats a core of 4 All-Star caliber players wtih some pretty good role ones in Marcus Morris, Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, Enes Kanter. Thats arguably as good a collection of talent as Doc had in LA last season, Bud the past couple of seasons & Steve Nash this year.
Why would you frame it in a coach-first way? Thats not really what drives winning first and foremost.
We love to shit on great players coaches whenever we can
no, Tatum and Brown literally just became all star caliber players last season. Hayward was also injured a whole lot during his tenure with the celtics. >Thats arguably as good a collection of talent as Doc had in LA last season, Bud the past couple o
When your best player is still in AAU too itâ€™s difficult.
Kyrie and Hayward hardly even played...

Hes not on Pop/Kerr/Spo/Nurse level.
Coaches are always scapegoats. There are very few substantive things most fans can say about coaches, as a lot of the job goes on behind the scenes and up close. The complaint about rotations will always exist, because fans dont get to see how the altern
