I'm not saying Del Negro is a great coach, but I think it's funny how Clip fans put 100% of the blame for their 1st round exit on him...as if the players weren't out there playing.
Dudes got man handled, nothing Vinny could of done.
But every team needs a scape goat, word to Mike Brown, _'Antoni, Stan Van Gundy.
Exactly. Sure he had a hard time handling the depth of that team, but no one was complaining when they went on that 17 (?) game win streak. Its not his fault Jordan was useless, but I guess you could say its his fault that he did not play Bledsoe more in that series. Bledsoe use to single handedly rip Memphis apart, but he always seemed to limit his minutes and not realize how effective he was against us.
And how exactly was VDN going to make their big men better? When you have a PG like Paul, he's going to pretty much run the show anyways. They got the 3rd seed with VDN and made it to the 2nd round last year with him. I want to see them keep the exact same team and see where a new coach gets them next season.
